Dieless Knife Cutting
Indian Industries analyzes the best fabrication method for a particular gasket requirement based on performance and cost metrics.
The ATOM Flashcutter is capable of fabricating gaskets without a die, using a rapid vertical reciprocating cutting motion. This can provide a cleaner cut part and avoid compression marks typically found with die cut gaskets. Depending on the material and configuration, this method can also hold tighter tolerances than traditional die cutting thanks to the the vacuum system holding the material in place during production.
This fabrication method requires a DXF file to be converted and uploaded to the operating system before production can begin.
Common materials we fabricate include:
- Rubber and Cork Blend
- EMI Shielding
- Thin Plastics
- Vegetable Fiber
