Machines require components and accessories to fit properly in order to ensure that they continuously function. Seals are an important part of machine performance, as they use them in their valves and joints. Hoffmeyer offers custom rubber seals or specialty seals that are made to meet the specs of specialized machinery. When standard sizes do not fit custom-made machines, industries can rely on Hoffmeyer for custom solutions. The automotive, construction, petrochemical, and plastic manufacturing industries often require custom rubber seals to meet the specifications of their custom equipment.
There are many factors to consider when making custom rubber seals: dimensions, materials, and designs. To achieve the best fit, engineers work closely with manufacturers in the planning and production phases. First, engineers choose their preferred elastomers with properties that will meet the needs of the equipment: thermal conductivity, chemical resistance, and lubricity. Next, the manufacturers study the designs from the engineers’ CAD drawings to see how the rubber can be molded. Finally, molding specialists apply different precision molding and cutting techniques to produce custom seals. Both the engineers and manufacturers test these custom seals to ensure they fit to perfection and keep the rotating parts of a machine in motion.
