Some of the more common uses of die cut gaskets are: environmental seals, dust seals, vibration dampers, and EMI shielding. When designing a gasket, remember to consider environmental, regulatory, and electrical requirements. Many of our products can be supplied with an adhesive backing, which can reduce or eliminate the need to use unmanageable liquid adhesive on the assembly line. Our sales team is available to assist you in specifying the correct materials and die cut shapes to meet your unique requirements. Please see the 1st page of this brochure for a partial list of popular materials. ITEMS TO CONSIDER WHEN SPECIFYING A DIE CUT PART INCLUDE: • Consider a multi-cavity steel rule die instead of a single cavity. Multiple cavity dies increase the number of gaskets made with each hit, which may reduce the amount of labor needed to manufacture production quantities. • In some cases, accordion style dies should be considered. Accordion style dies make efficient use of the gasket material. Whether our production team is manufacturing a simple washer or intricately detailed gaskets, every phase of the production process follows a time-tested procedure designed to ensure product conformity and quality.

Ideal for applications requiring heat transfer from a PCB to a heat sink, these ultra soft and pliable materials can drastically cut thermal resistance and greatly enhance cooling by filling air gaps and small irregularities. Available over a wide range of thicknesses, mechanical properties, liner solutions and thermal performance, this material can also be customized based on customer needs. CompaTherm is so effective, many engineers have found that it can altogether eliminate the need for fans in their electronic devices. Applications for this material include general thermal management, gap filling, gaskets, and overall reduction of thermal resistance. Our experts can advise you on the best approach for your next project.

Our form-In-place robots use the latest automation technology to dispense a defined gasket bead on virtually any work piece. Dispensed gaskets are perfect for use in many aerospace, industrial, high technology, medical equipment and military applications. Gaskets requiring thin profiles, intricate shapes and/or changes in the Z-axis or elevation are easily dispensed by our robots. Cutting-edge technology such as Inline Z-axis Compensation ensures our Form-In-Place gaskets meet your specification, even on imperfect gasket surfaces. Prior to dispensing, our robots check the gasket shelf and make automatic adjustments to the needle height at various locations resulting in a superior gasket. FORM-IN-PLACE BENEFITS: • Offers significant material cost savings • Short lead times • Dispensed on intricate work pieces including those with changes in elevation • Conductive materials for EMI shielding • UV cured materials • Digital system assures precise gasket placement • Modus SERVICE: Send us your work pieces or let Modus provide you with a turn-key work piece and gasket solution AS9100 Rev C & ISO9001 | www.modusadvanced.com | firstname.lastname@example.org | Tel: (925) 248-9493 “WES” BRANDED & 3M PRODUCTS HiMagTM EMI/microwave absorbers for easy and cost-effective microwave absorptionand shielding.
