Moulding

When you require a 3 dimensional component, the most common and probably best known production method is moulding which has 2 main areas. The first area is compression moulding, which is most frequently used on lower volume or larger sized components. The second area is injection moulding, which is more suited to high volume smaller components. Moulding

Printed Gasket Component Technology

The process of printing Conductive and Non-conductive elastomers is a novel and very cost-effective method of producing gaskets. The Printed Gasket Component Technology process produces a highly selective deposit resulting in negligible wastage.

Gaskets can be printed onto a carrier (e.g. metal or plastic) to ease assembly and location. The gaskets can be printed direct onto a component, greatly improving assembly and secondary environmental seals can be incorporated into a gasket.


Further help or guidance on the vast range of products we currently manufacture can be found on our main site at http://www.advancedseals.com, alternatively you can Contact Us to discuss any requirements you may have. Please use the contact details set out above or use the contact form on our Contact Us page.

Punching / Stamping

Our most common form of Seals & Gasket production is by punching or stamping (punching stamping) two-dimensional components from sheet or strip material.
We are capable of producing products from thin foils to thick sponges from the most simple rectangular gaskets through to complicated manifold type gaskets (NOT metal reinforced type for the automotive industry). We can also produce square section rings and washers by slicing, or parting from tube or extrusion.Punching Stamping

The tooling that we use is manufactured by several external suppliers that utilise the very latest laser cutting technology to manufacture tooling to the highest possible standard, this enable us to produce some of the very best quality Seals & Gaskets currently on the market.

Water Jet Cutting

This process utilises a jet of water pressurised to 30,00090,000 psi (210–620 MPa) that is then forced through a nozzle to produce a jet of water thinner than a human hair. In a pure water form this can cut rubbers, plastics, sponges, paper and many other materials to many millimetres thick extremely accurately. With introduction of an abrasive powder, it is capable of cutting Steels, Titanium, Inconel and other metals, as well as composites like Carbon Fibre. With the advantage that with extremely localised heat generation it produces zero or minute blackening on the cut edge.Water Jet Cutting

Water jet cutting has tremendous advantages over traditional manufacturing methods when dealing with thick rubbers and sponges, or when ultra accurate or complicated gaskets are required. It also comes into it’s own when customers are developing new products and require one’s and two’s of different components, as it doesn’t require tooling. Infinite variations on dimensions are possible with a few simple keystrokes at the processor controller.
