Oil Seal Manufacturing Process

The oil seal manufacturing process involves numerous phases and stages in the sequence of producing a finished seal.

The elastomer material (has innate properties of natural rubber) is the critical element for oil seal production.

We consider significant environmental factors in our oil seal manufacturing process:

Reliable Chemical Resistance
Strength and Durability to Low Temperature and Heat
Ability to withstand Weather Aging and Ozone
Outstanding Water Resistance
Superior Elasticity
Low Compression Set Maintaining Elastomeric Properties
Cost of Raw Materials for Units of Production

Our base polymer provides alkali, acid, oil and wear resistance. Maximum temperature limits are contingent upon other conditions of operation.

For a range of sealing requirements and specifications, we provide a number of compounds and shapes from which to choose for your discrete sealing circumstances.

Oil Seal Making Process

We first review your old seal, measure with gauges or calipers to match materials to create your new seal. Size is verified (old to new) using our computer models. Your seal type is confirmed and the size is entered into our high-tech computer program. Material is confirmed as we prepare it for mounting onto a metal template for securing into our lathe. This machine rotates the material on its axis to perform the cutting operation for your new seal. The seal data is subsequently transferred from the computer to the lathe’s computer. Our highly skilled technicians check the cutting tools, start the lathe machine and cut your new seal. To conclude our process, and for accuracy in manufacturing, the new seal is compared to the old seal. The entire seal process takes only a few minutes to accomplish.

Advantages For You When Choosing Us

Our seal making machines use the latest Computer Numerical Control (CNC) system for accuracy. The PC-based controllers are founded on motion controlling devices with flexibility.

If we cannot make a matching seal for your system from our 150,000 machine seals, we will gladly return your money.
