Best Methods for Bulk Gasket Production
Finding the best method for producing quality gaskets is an important decision. There are many factors to consider, including ease of use and cost effectiveness. Fortunately, Manufacturer’s Supplies Company carries several different types of cutters. You’ll be able to find exactly what you need to cut a perfect, long-lasting gasket.
1. Flash Cut
A flash cut machine is programmable, so it actually doesn’t need a die. This will save you a considerable amount of time and effort. Manufacturer’s Supplies Company carries ATOM FlashCut machines, and we stand behind their superior quality and ability. ATOM’s programming features an automatic nesting tool so that you can get the most out of your gasket material and cut down on waste. These flash cut machines are great for cutting through most materials, including thick rubber and silicon. We carry several different models of flash cut machines, so you’ll be able to find the best one for your specific needs.
We’ve talked about clicker press machines a lot on this blog, but for good reason. They’re the most popular kind of die press because they’re just so easy to use. ATOM is committed to making quality cutters that save time and are easy and comfortable to operate. While a clicker press doesn’t have the programming capabilities of a flash cut machine, you can program the cut counter so you get the exact number of gaskets you want to cut. We offer 24 versions of ATOM clicker presses, so no matter your industry, there’s a clicker press for you.
Do you need a lot of gaskets? Do you need very large gaskets? Either way, this is the die cut for you. Full beam presses are the best tools for tall orders, whether that’s literally or figuratively. They’re able to cut entire rolls of materials, or cut something as large as the cutting surface. These machines are large, but they’re also precise. Cutting plates will retract to the back of the machine after every cycle to ensure that die placement is exactly where you need it to be. Manufacturer’s Supplies Company carries several of these heavy-duty machines, take a look and see if your business needs one.
