Sealing material | Laser cutting

Video description

Seals are an indispensable feature of day-to-day industrial life. They are used in widely differing applications and prevent or limit the passage of unwanted substances from one area to another.

The quality of the seals plays a particularly important role in this. The versatility of the eurolaser system is ideally suited for cutting out many sealing materials with high accuracy.

Advantages of laser cutting:
• Very high precision and repeat accuracy
• Radius-free internal contours possible
• No tools (punches, cutters), therefore no wear
• Non-contact cutting means no application of force and therefore no stretching of the material

In our example, the sealing material consists of aramid fibres bonded with nitrile butadiene rubber.

Typical applications of this compound:
• Fuels, oils
• Water, steam, gases
• Lubricants, coolants
• Hydrocarbons
• Saline solutions
• Weak organic and inorganic acids

Seals are usually exposed to highly complex demands. Their functionality therefore depends on a number of parameters. Ever increasing environmental and safety consciousness leads to higher and higher demands on sealing capability. It is self evident that an accurate, well fitting blank is a prerequisite for the seal's effectiveness. The CO2 laser provides the ideal solution.
