Production




Flashcutter

Hi-Tech Seals' Gasket Division's flashcutter is capable of utilizing CAD renderings to quickly produce gaskets in rubber, plastic and composite materials. The flashcutter’s surface area can accommodate material up to 5’ x 10’ (1550 mm x 3050 mm).

Gaskets are cut through a rapid vertical reciprocating motion. The cutting motion produces a cleaner finished part, avoiding compression marks found on die-cut gaskets. The flashcutter’s vacuum surface holds the sheet material in place preventing the movement of parts during production. This enables the flashcutter to maintain exceptional tolerances during production.


Waterjet

The Omax waterjet further expands our manufacturing capabilities. The waterjet cuts the standard composite and rubber materials, but also allows us to manufacture metal gaskets up to 2” thick. The waterjet working surface area is 60” x 135”. Gaskets that require a larger work surface area can be produced in a dovetail style.





Clicker Press
Die Cut

Hi-Tech Seals' Gasket Division utilizes both a clicker press and roller press to produce die cut gaskets. Dies are manufactured locally and stored in house.

Die Cut - Round Gaskets - up to 48”
Die Cut - Oblong Gaskets -up to 33” x 66”
