Micron Laser Technology's Buna-N gaskets leverages laser machining processes for a wide variety of rubbers, composites, metals, and plastics to impart a competitive advantage to our customers. From common transportation and medical products to the U.S. Navy, MLT is a cost-effective solution for cutting custom gaskets of many materials to the tightest tolerances.
Our lasers are optimized for prototype runs to production volumes to ensure optimal precision, cut quality and consistency since there is no tooling wear. The extremely narrow beam width allows tight nesting of parts for maximum material utilization, essential for reducing costs especially when cutting specialty materials.
When existing products like bellows, diaphragms, grommets, or other common molded products require additional features not possible via traditional machining, stamping or etching, MLT can optically align to your part to precisely registered cuts relative to existing features.
MLT Gaskets and Washers Advantages

- Ease of part modification
- Ideal for prototyping
- Cost effective
- Next day turns
- No tooling costs
Whether fabricated from metal or nonmetal materials, your custom gasket or washer dimension can be as small as .010″ up to 30″ without custom setups and maintain tolerances up to 10um. Laser machined, non-metal materials may include plastic, rubber, cork, fiberglass, silicone, paper, sponge or foam, felt, ceramics, and leather/fabrics. Gaskets and washers can be fabricated with or without pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing.
In many applications, making the right material selection is worth more than the cost of the part when failures occur. High temperature gaskets and washers are fabricated from materials like Fiberfrax® Ceramic Fiber, Kapton®, Flexible Graphite, PTFE(Teflon®), Nomex®, Silicone, Fluorosilicone, Fiberglass, Silicone and Viton®.
