We are the world’s most comprehensive specialty components fabricator, and a leading provider of waterjet cutting services for a wide range of industries and applications. Our diversified technologies have allowed us to stay on the cutting edge of gasket & seal manufacturing.
Waterjet cutting is a highly effective technique that uses high-pressure, high-velocity water forced through a small nozzle to produce a very clean, precise cut. Waterjet cutting is a fast, flexible and accurate method ideal for cutting complex parts and maintaining material integrity.
One advantage of waterjet cutting is that it allows parts to be tightly nested, which maximizes yields. Waterjet technology offers accurate cuts of complex and intricate parts, efficient use of materials and less compression distortion. Another benefit of waterjet cutting is that it is an excellent method for producing prototype and test parts or short production runs.
SMI waterjet cuts gaskets and sealing products from a wide variety of non-metallic materials including:
- Compressed fiber
- Rubber sponge
SMI proudly maintains a modern manufacturing facility with three of the most advanced waterjet cutting devices available today. Each machine deploys four independent cutting heads simultaneously.
