ISO9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 approved and manufacturing IATF16949:2016 approved
Huge product range for all application conditions
The latest innovations in seal design and materials technology
Broad range of materials specifically developed and accredited for automotive applications
Our extensive range of automotive seals includes:
· Bespoke rubber automotive seals
· 2-Shot mouldings
· Metal seals
· PTFE spring energised & co-axial seals
· Rotary seals
· Oil seals
· Composite seals (chemical bond or over-moulding)
Key areas of application include:
Air admission, fuel and EGR management - Seals suitable for high static or pulsating pressure application, material grades suitable for selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust gas and diesel powered vehicle after treatment systems (AdBlue® tank sealing).
Braking systems - Controlled running friction and wear on seals to maximise life, system critical components with strict process control.
Cooling & lubrication systems - Superior material grades, compounds compatible with eco friendly air con gases and compressor oils (CO2/PAG/PAO/POE oils).
Transmission & steering - Seals for high pressure, high speed, broad range of elastomeric materials for new generation fluids.
Chassis & suspension - Abrasion and loading resistant high strength materials.
Electronics - IP rated low closure force seals, conductive elastomers for EMI/RFI shielding.
Our application engineers utilise the latest in 2D/3D CAD and FEA simulation software to design and replicate automotive seal performance before finalising each individual seal design, incorporating significant feature and critical function elements for integration with customer mating parts. We offer material development and testing, and a component endurance testing service.
Automotive cleanroom specification standard ISO16232 for particulate and cleanliness requirements.
We have a dedicated team of Quality Engineers and Quality Inspectors ensuring that advanced product quality planning is at the heart of our quality function who
· Mitigate risks during all manufacturing processes
· Anticipate potential risks
· Regularly review process controls and stability
· PPAP review
· Continuously monitor production SPC data
· Regularly audit manufacturing facilities and closely monitor manufacturing performance
We regularly challenge our manufacturing facilities for continuous improvements to processes including follow up-audits, implementation of adequate prevention measures to avoid repeat issues, analysis and review of similar products to prevent future issues, effective root cause analysis and preventative actions review.
Once parts are approved for production, our dedicated Logistics Team work closely with our automotive customers to ensure products are scheduled and delivered on time, every time. In a time critical production industry we use framework agreements, Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) systems to ensure our customer’s production lines continue to run smoothly.
We design and engineered PTFE seals for slip ring systems and contactless rotary joints for the reliable transfer of power and media.
We developed a rotary seal for a prototype fluid separating device used for research purposes with the potential to develop the unit for use on an industrial scale.
We designed and engineered special metal seals for a critical subsea communications application.
