For more than 70 years, DMC has manufactured tooling for mission-critical electrical systems in aerospace and defense, rail, marine, and several other industries. DMC tools are manufactured in the United States; many are listed on the Department of Defense Qualified Product List (QPL).
Calibration of Daniels Manufacturing Corporation's inspection measuring and test equipment is in accordance with ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994. The quality system meets ISO9001:2008/AS9100:2009, Rev. C. The accuracy of inspection gaging equipment and measuring standards used in the calibration and/or testing is traceable to the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST).
Daniels Manufacturing Corporation operates under a government approved (DCASR-ATL-OQOA) single standard quality control system. A documented recall system is in place to address any M&TE or measurement standard found to be significantly out-of-tolerance.
Unless otherwise specified in the contract requirements, the collective uncertainty of the measurement standards shall not exceed 25 percent of the acceptable tolerance for the characteristic being calibrated. Environmental controls have been applied to the extent necessary to assure continued measurements of required accuracy, giving due consideration to temperature (73 +/- 4 degrees), humidity (45% +/- 10%), cleanliness and other controllable factors. Compensating corrections shall be applied to calibration results in an environment which departs from acceptable conditions.
DMC Tools products include manual, battery-powered, pneumatic, electric, and hydraulic crimping tools; backshell and accessory torque tools; contact insertion and removal tools; EMI/RFI shielding band tools; and Alphatron® wire crimp pull testers. The company's products have been used in defense systems, aircraft programs, land or seagoing transport systems, space exploration programs, and in many other types of manufacturing and support activities.
