Hi-Tech Seals' Gasket Division's flashcutter is capable of utilizing CAD renderings to quickly produce rubber, plastic and composite materials. We can cut rubber materials up to 1/2" thick and plastic and composite materials up to a 1/8" thick. The surface area of the flashcutter’s can accommodate sheet material up to60"× 120". Dovetailing or skiving techniques allows us to create gaskets the exceed the bed surface area size.
The flashcutters use a rapid vertical reciprocating motion to cut the gaskets. The cutting motion produces a cleaner finished part, avoiding compression marks found on die-cut gaskets. The flashcutters' vacuum surfaces hold sheet material in place preventing the movement of parts during production. This enables the flashcutter to maintain exceptional tolerances.
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.
