Ace Seal is a global manufacturer of custom o-rings, seals, gaskets and other molded rubber & plastic components

Custom Laser-Cut Gaskets

Laser Cut Gaskets

Gaskets are components that provide sealing between the intersection of mechanical parts to prevent leaks between the surfaces. Custom rubber gaskets are necessary to ensure a seamless blend between unique surfaces. As such, the gaskets' tolerance, shape, size, and quantity are entirely customizable, and the applications are virtually endless.

When precision design and fast production are a priority, Ace Seal provides the high-quality, custom laser-cutting services you need to get the job done. Contact us to begin discussing your custom laser-cut gasket project today!

What Is Gasket Laser Cutting?

Laser cutting is a thermal process in which a laser beam cuts material in a specified area. This process uses CAD programming to create a path for the laser to follow, resulting in highly repeatable, precision gasket designs.

CAD programming allows laser cutting to create custom work for specific requirements and can cut through many materials. Using a laser allows for tighter tolerances, and the resulting gasket will blend seamlessly into your manufacturing process.


What Are the Benefits of Custom Laser Cutting?

The process of laser cutting has many advantages, which include:

  • High tolerances for precision cuts
  • No tooling costs
  • Cut a broad range of materials
  • No compression distortion
  • Superior flexibility, accuracy, repeatability, and speed

Laser-Cut Gasket Process Versus Die-Cut Gasket Process

Laser cutting is a prominent process gasket-cutting process. Die cutting is another widespread manufacturing practice used to create custom gasket components. The best process for your project will depend on your unique priorities.

Die-cut gaskets are created through the use of tooling. Die cutting cannot easily accommodate harder materials or larger, more complex parts. However, die cutting is much better suited to higher production quantities than laser cutting. It is cost-effective and applicable to many materials, including rubber, silicone, and cork.

Laser Cutting Rubber Materials

Laser-cut gaskets can be fabricated from various rubber and silicone materials, usually from a sheet or roll. Ace Seal can create laser-cut gaskets from:

  • Nitrile
  • Butyl
  • Neoprene
  • Ethylene-Propylene
  • Fluorocarbon (Viton®)
  • Polyurethane
  • Silicone
  • Elastomers
  • Cork

While laser cutting is compatible with nearly any rubber material, the best material for your application will depend on a variety of factors. Reference our comparison chart or contact us today for help determining the best material for your project.
