Custom Lathe Cut Parts

Archer Advanced Rubber Components is a premier manufacturer of precision lathe cut seals and gaskets. We custom manufacture these products in a diverse combination of polymers, sizes, and colors. Most polymers that we use have hardness that ranges from 40 to 90 Shore A durometer. Additionally, we can also custom formulate a material to optimize your exact application. Parts are lathe-cut from ASTM/SAE/ZZR-765 compounds, SAE J1603 materials, FDA white list ingredients, and other specialty grade materials.

Custom Innovation: Learn the advantages of lathe cut seals vs. o-rings.

We specialize in producing cylindrical rubber tubes with precision ground surface finishes. Initially, the tubing is vulcanized in a high-pressure autoclave, which uses a precision mandrel to form the inside diameter. Once the tube is cured, the product is ground on specialized lathe-type grinding machines. This operation finalizes the outside diameter (OD) or wall thickness to the proper specification. The desired cut thickness is achieved by using a specialized carbide cutting tool on computer controlled automatic cutting machines.

Through CNC and CAD programming capabilities, Archer Advanced Rubber Components meets your prototype to high volume production requirements efficiently. Our normal turnaround is 4 weeks. If required, emergency or rush services are also available. Belts, coupling gaskets, garden sprayers, and parts used in fuel containment systems are some typical products we manufacture.
