MILCO can utilize numerous resources and outside vendors in order to manufacture simple parts to complex and highly intricate assemblies that are utilized on a variety of different Aircraft components.
The gaskets or "mechanical seals" we water jet cut are mostly used as a means to seal a specified gap or space between two objects under a set amount of compression. These objects can be of any type of material and can be a variety of different sizes. Waterjet Cutting is perfect for custom gaskets for a couple of reasons: One reason being because shapes can easily and quickly be changed or revised in order to make a better seal. Another reason why waterjet cutting is widely used for custom gasket making is because Gaskets are most commonly manufactured from sheet materials. Waterjet cutting works best with sheet materials because of the consistency, flatness and variety sheet materials come in for gasket production.
All gaskets and seals have their own characteristics and can be contoured to customer specifications. What do you need? What does your application call out for? Let us know and we will give you our knowledge and help the best we can.

The gasket started as a print and went to a DXF / CAD file. After it was waterjet cut at MILCO, it went off to be de-burred then went straight through our rigorous quality control inspection process. The seal was a complete success, with the waterjet cut and service exceeding our customer's expectations. We always look forward to manufacturing more seals and gaskets in the future. Hopefully we will make your next custom gasket! Please contact us for any questions you may have or email us your file to be quoted.
