Engineering and Manufacturing Capabilities
seals, o-rings, and gaskets are a specialty.
Seals Eastern possesses rubber mixing equipment, CNC mills and lathes for tool & die fabrication,
and state of the art molding equipment to offer complete manufacturing services for your
applications. By possessing this equipment and capability within one factory, we are
able to deliver Rapid Prototype Seals.** Seals Eastern can
design and deliver complex custom seals in a matter of days.
Seal Design Capabilities
Seals Eastern utilizes computer assisted engineering. All drawings are made using CAD software.
We easily engage FTP drawing transfers for
engineering department collaboration. Finite element analysis (FEA)
is utilized when applicable. Our seal and tool design team has combined experience of over 100 years.
Tool & Die Design and Mfg Capabilities
Seals Eastern has a captive tool and die manufacturing
facility equipped with state-of-the-art CNC, mill, and drilling
operations. Electronic drawings are used to generate programmed tool-paths which are
downloaded to our numerically controlled equipment. This facility produces high tolerance tooling
that gives Seals Eastern the ability to manufacture the highest
quality precision molded rubber products.
Precision Molding Capabilities
Seals Eastern utilizes:
Production runs range from small batch to precision molded components whose
volume, in some instances, approach one million units per month.
- rubber injection molding,
- compression molding, and
- liquid injection molding (LIM).
Seals Easterns facility also includes a clean room for the manufacture of
ultra high quality sealing components.
Rubber Compound Design & Mixing Capabilities
Seals Eastern has a captive rubber mixing facility capable of
producing statistically consistent rubber compounds. Seals Eastern has
experience formulating and mixing nearly all synthetic polymers currently
available in the market.
Our Materials Development Center
offers instrumentation to monitor the quality of each batch of rubber mixed.
Important material properties are
verified using a computer integrated MDR2000 and Instron Tensilometer. These
same instruments, in addition to others, facilitate material development and
product improvement for Seals Eastern customers.
Failure Analysis Capabilities
Our Engineering Team has 24 x 7 access to our
Materials Development Center
to analyze field failures and in some instances, re-create the failure
environment. This service is an integral part of our customer support program.
** "Rapid Prototype Seals" are a premium service.
