Newly implemented CNC operation gives customers the ability to order only the parts they need, when they need them.

Houston, TX:  Dichtomatik announced its addition of a new computerized numerical control (CNC) operation to its list of capabilities and services. This new capability, located in Houston, TX, allows Dichtomatik to provide seals with fast lead times and lower quantity minimums to its customers. Because Dichtomatik is able to machine a wide variety of different seals on demand, customers have the opportunity to decrease downtime by receiving needed parts faster than traditional molding processes.

The CNC operation is capable of creating fluid power seals, oil seals, o-rings, and custom molded rubber shapes in a wide variety of sizes and materials for many different dynamic applications.
