SSP Manufacturing, Inc
Water -Cut Machines can cut everything from common rubbers and plastics to the hardest of steels including 4" titanium. The advantages of Water Cut gaskets are that they involve no tooling which allows for quick deliveries and no tooling charges. They also enable extremely precise parts to your specifications. Our water cut machines hold industry leading tolerances of +/- .003" with repeatability to +/- .002". The particular machine pictured above also represents one of the largest cutting surfaces available (6 ft x 12 ft). This enables us to provide seamless parts with no bonded joints in any size that fits within that rectangle area.
Other benefits to Water Cut Gaskets are with thick rubbers in both solid and sponges where the typical method of manufacture, die cutting, would cause a severe concavity, water-cutting provides a seamless wall similar to if the part had been molded, though not quite as smooth. If you are having a hard time with any of your designs or ideas and are not sure if it is best to Die Cut, Mold, or Water-Cut Gaskets call us.
