Laser Cutting of a Gasket for Pharmaceutical Use

A customer in the pharmaceutical industry needed a company with the experience and specialized skill to handle high-end customer supplied materials. Miller Gasket was contracted to do the work as highlighted here, which consisted of the fabrication of a custom gasket from expensive material, utilizing our specialized laser cutting process. Employing our 100 watt laser cutter, .030” Kalrez material was cut to precise configurations while holding a non accumulative ±0.013mm tolerance. 125 holes of various sizes were then cut into the gasket. Accuracy and integrity were ensured with our in-process inspection protocol, using our on-site Micro-Vu vertex measuring system. The gaskets were sonic cleaned, and custom packaged in individual sealed bags.

Overall dimensions of the finished part were 120mm x 85.5mm, completed after a 3 week turnaround time. 100 units were supplied for this project, shipped to the customer on the East Coast. At Miller Gasket we are fully equipped to take on challenging projects, as well as meeting specific demands for material usage and tight tolerances.
