What is a lathe cut?
A lathe cut product a manufactured from a cylindrical tube of rubber by inserting a mandrel into the cylindrical tube and cutting the finished dimensions with a knife while the mandrel is being turned at high speed in a lathe type machine.
Lathe cut products are used in many applications such as: Seals, Drive Belts, Vibration Dampeners, Bumpers, Bushings and Insulators.
Method of Manufacture
The cylindrical tube from which lathe cut products are cut may be produced by several manufacturing processes depending on design parameters such as size, quantity required, tolerances and material.
We can custom manufacturer Lathe Cut Washers and Gaskets for tight tolernace applications for a wide range of markets. We can produce diameters from 1/8” to 7” ID, cut thickness starting at .020” with tolerances of plus/minus .004 with durometer ranges from 40 to 90, shore A.
Our extensive applications experience provides you with custom compounds that respond to your need for the most cost effective materials. Our formulas use ASTM specifications and the most demanding performance testing criteria. We can offer a wide range of custom or stock compounds in Nitrile, Neoprene, EPDM, SBR, Silicone, Fluoro-elastomer, Natural Rubber and some food and water grade formulas.
Various cross sections are available for lathe cut parts as shown below.
