Flash Cutter

We use modern digital flatbed cutting machines that can cut gaskets with more precision and accuracy with less start-up time, resulting in improved quality of the finished parts. Gaskets cut from this method come out nearly perfectly every time and rarely require any secondary finishing. Our machines work with various styles of sheet gasket materials – single and multilayer – in thicknesses up to 8mm (5/16”).

Our primary gasket cutting equipment is a CNC controlled flatbed cutting table which allows for virtually any custom shape to be cut quickly and precisely with no minimum order requirements. Our equipment eliminates the need to have dies made, which are costly and come with long lead times. We package all cut gaskets with lot traceability identification tags for compliance to customer specifications.

We offer single-piece construction hand-cut gaskets from compressed sheet material in sizes greater than 1,524mm (60”) and up to 3,048mm (120”) OD. Using carefully crafted digitally cut templates, our skilled craftspeople can replicate intricate gasket patterns, and produce finished cut quality similar to digital cutting machines.

 

Welding

Some applications used in designs for chemical reactors, food and beverage vessels and heat exchangers, require PTFE gaskets larger than 1,524mm (60”) in diameter. Many fabricators simply use a traditional dovetail design joining several segments together to form the finished large gasket. Sometimes these dovetails are wrapped in additional material and are covered in wraps or special form-in-place liquid sealants in order to seal the leak paths created from this dovetail design. This approach often leads to leaks and makes the gasket very hard to install.

Durlon® solves this dovetail design problem using a proprietary welding procedure and one-of-a-kind equipment designed by our in-house mechanical engineering experts.

By using segments cut from our digital flatbed cutting machine, we can bond segments together creating a superior performing gasket compared to dovetail gaskets. Finished gaskets can be nearly any shape, ring type or full-face, and can be made with cross sections up to 229mm (9”) wide giving our customers reassurance that their large diameter sealing requirements will perform as expected.

 

Lathe

The lathe cutting process produces an extremely precise and accurately cut, finished gasket because it follows the same stringent quality control parameters as does our large sheet billet process. This manufacturing process is the most efficient when creating ring gaskets and highly-recommended for smaller PTFE billets.

Our lathe-cut PTFE gaskets are produced using only the best quality billets of Durlon® 9000, 9000N, 9200, and 9400 – some of the most highly-recommended PTFE gasket material approved for use with a number of important industrial chemicals.
