Precision Water Jet Cutting of a Silicone Connector Seal for Electronic Applications

Connector seal
Connector seal

Miller Gasket was commissioned to fabricate a connector seal for use in an electronic application. Utilizing our advanced flow water jet equipment, 60 durometer silicone material was manipulated with a precision water cutting process to create the 92 pin connector, holding the tightest tolerance of 0.005” during cutting, and less than 5° of draft. In-process inspection was performed utilizing our state-of-the-art Micro-Vu Vertex measuring center to ensure accuracy and integrity.

Overall dimensions of the finished seal were 3.16” by .295”, with a thickness of 3/8”. This project was performed to the ASME Y14, 5M-1994 standards for tolerancing. 2000 to 5000 units were created for this project, completed after a 3 week turnaround time. We were able to keep tooling costs for this fabrication at zero.
