About Us

Custom Built Controllers - DACO Scientific Ltd

We are a specialist engineering company that’s been in the business for over 30 years. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality specialist hand controllers – with the fastest turnaround times and the most responsive customer service.

 

Whether you are taking advantage of our modular hand controllers, which are available in small quantities in just a few working days, or looking for a complex bespoke solution, we engineer all our devices to be user friendly, robust and able to withstand the most demanding conditions. 

Many of our products are still in active service after more than 10 years and we continue to provide ongoing support to extend their lifespan well beyond that.

We hold stock for tens of thousands of configurations, which means we have everything on hand to be able to work quickly and cost effectively – even when it comes to the most complex custom build jobs. For example, we’ve delivered a fully customised military joystick in just 13 weeks.

Our service doesn’t end when you receive your order. Our experts are always on hand to provide support, delivering prompt assistance with any queries, repairs or overhaul requirements that come up at any time. Our goal is to make your life easier, so while we spend most of our time with fellow engineers, we are equally happy to coordinate and follow up with your quality assurance, purchasing and other colleagues – freeing up everyone within your organisation to focus on getting their own job done.

We’re AS9100 certified, so you are assured of getting the best at every stage. Our products are covered by a minimum two-year warranty and very few require routine or scheduled maintenance. Our extensive stock levels mean that, if repair or overhaul is necessary, we can get it back to you in record time. And we are standing by when you want to upgrade your hand controller.

All Daco products are currently ITAR-free, so you receive your order on time without such restrictions. If a situation arose in which we felt an ITAR-controlled component would best fit your requirements we would always get your permission in advance.

With facilities in the UK and the US and knowledgeable representatives in other countries, we stand ready to support you with all your specialist hand controller requirements – wherever in the world you may be.
