Integrated Gasket Solutions

Zatkoff Seals & Packings is excited to announce our Integrated Gasket Solutions! Combining the power of scanners, a knife cutter, and other manufacturing technologies, we are able to replicate parts out of a sample of unknown materials and dimensions — no product specification required.

Gaskets

Using this process, we are able to provide a high-level of customization with low-volume production. This process provides opportunities for our customers that create a quick turnaround for samples and prototypes, improving speed to market as a result. Because no tooling is needed, designs and redesigns are flexible, and the manufacturing process is quick and efficient.

New gaskets can be produced in a variety of materials:

  • Compressed Non-Asbestos Fibers
  • Carbon + Kevlar
  • Graphite
  • PTFE
  • Polyurethane
  • Rubber
  • Foam
  • Cork
  • Silicone
  • Paper
  • Rubber Coated Metal
  • EMI Shielding Materials
  • Thermal Interface Materials (TIM)
Multiple gaskets

This streamlined process is made up of four easy steps:

STEP 1

FTIR scanner identifies the unknown sample material, matching it to our extensive material library.

STEP 2

Scanner defines part geometry to create a 2-D print. At this point, additional product features can be added as needed.

STEP 3

Knife cutter quickly produces a new gasket with the selected material according to scanned dimensions. Offering even more design flexibility, kiss cuts are also available.

STEP 4

Finished gaskets can be marked with part numbers, customer logos, or any other requirements.

Our Integrated Gasket Solutions provide improved speed to market for our customers. To boost your efficiency and take advantage of this streamlined process, contact your local Zatkoff representative.

Hardening and oxidation occur when the part is exposed to high temperatures for an extended period of time, causing plasticizer volatilization and oxidative cracking. As the O-ring material hardens, the O-ring is unable to retain sealability, causing leakage and failure to occur.
