Perth-based DSM is one of the few places entrusted by the aviation industry to machine replacement parts for aircraft. DSM’s team of engineers and senior machinists work closely with various aviation companies including local aeronautical engineers, Thompson Design.
Replacement parts are measured to exacting standards, modeled in 3D software and then machined to the highest precision, producing parts identical to the original.
Below is an aircraft control lever which is interchangeable with the original. This item saved the company from being grounded for 22 weeks while a replacement part was sourced from Europe.
DSM stocks and sources aviation-grade specialty alloys and metals as required including a full range of aircraft grade aluminium;

Here at DSM we believe in giving everyone a fair go and in the importance of hands-on training. That’s why we have a long-standing practice of taking on apprentices.
Daniel Clements came to DSM as an apprentice at the age of 15. Ten years on, he’s now a highly skilled machinist and helps train our apprentices. Daniel said his apprenticeship at DSM was a good starting point to his career.
“I learnt a lot here, not just machining skills but also life skills,” Daniel said.
“There’s a lot of variety in the jobs we do here. Each new job is a new challenge, and you learn new skills from doing different things.”
Currently we have two apprentices, Aaron and Thomas.
Aaron hopes to one day run his own workshop. He said his time at DSM has been invaluable in his training.
“It helps me develop an engineering mind, knowing how things work and how they fit together. I also appreciate that we learn by actually doing jobs on the machine, and through trial and error.”
