Find Custom Gaskets with I.B. Moore

With over five decades of experience, I.B. Moore Company provides customers with custom gaskets for manufacturing and sheet rubber. Custom gaskets play a leading role in ensuring efficient operations, preventing leaks, and maintaining machinery and equipment integrity. In essence, they are tailor-made sealing solutions. But why should you order them from us?

The Benefits of Custom Gaskets

Custom gaskets improve performance, enhance equipment durability, and promote cost-effectiveness in numerous applications. Unlike standard gaskets, ours can be customized to meet the specific requirements of an application or piece of equipment. That ensures that the gasket perfectly matches the dimensions and specifications of the mating surfaces, with no room for gaps or irregularities.

I.B. Moore gaskets help prevent leaks, which promotes the overall safety and reliability of the system. And since we tailor them to the machinery or system’s exact specifications, they optimize performance and efficiency. That improves sealing effectiveness and minimizes energy loss. That kind of precision goes a long way toward ensuring peak operating efficiency and saving your company money.

Custom Gaskets for Manufacturing Contribute to Less Downtime

Custom gaskets for manufacturing purposes also help prevent contamination. Maintaining a sterile environment is essential in pharmaceuticals, food processing, and electronics manufacturing industries. Our custom gaskets can be designed with materials that meet strict regulatory standards and are compatible with industry-specific hygiene requirements.

With all these benefits, our custom gaskets contribute to reduced downtime and maintenance costs. Failed gaskets can lead to unplanned shutdowns, expensive repairs, and lost productivity. With I.B. Moore custom gaskets, you’ll have less risk and longer intervals between needed maintenance tasks.

How are Custom Gaskets with I.B. Moore Manufactured?

Our custom gasket manufacturing process generally includes these steps:

  • Design and material selection: Our team members collaborate with our clients to understand the gasket’s intended application, environment, and performance requirements. Then, they design the gasket and select suitable materials.
  • Material processing: Once the design is finalized, the chosen material gets molded or cut into shape. We use different methods for this, like molding, die-cutting or laser cutting.
  • Surface preparation: The surfaces of the gasket are prepared to ensure optimal sealing. Depending on the type of gasket, we may need to grind or apply coatings to the surface.
  • Marking and identification: Gaskets are often marked with essential information like part numbers, material specifications, and manufacturing dates to ensure easy replacement for our clients.
  • Assembly (if applicable): Multiple components may need to be assembled for the final gasket structure. This step involves precision assembly techniques to ensure the integrity of the finished product.
  • Quality control: At I.B. Moore, we use rigorous quality control measures throughout the manufacturing process. That includes dimensional checks, visual inspections, and testing for specific performance characteristics to ensure the gasket meets the required standards: yours, ours, and industry standards.
  • Packaging: After passing our quality control checks, your custom gaskets get packaged carefully to prevent damage during transportation. We provide proper labeling and documentation for easy identification and handling.
