We can produce gaskets, seals, shims, gap fillers, washers, discs, and squares, and we specialize in cut parts directly from customer supplied drawings.

We can drill various hole sizes and make notches in your material, which is great for marking locations of grommets, snaps, or folds. Fabric die cutting allows for virtually any shape to be cut with consistency and accuracy. We can use your existing dies, or our team can create a custom die.

Hygienic Fabrics and Filters offers rapid prototyping and short lead times as well as special packaging for medical products. Our state-of-the-art equipment, cutting-edge technology, and highly qualified and experienced staff distinguish us from the competition.

The steel rule die is the heart of die cutting. Formed metal blades are positioned in a wooden board to form a “cookie cutter,” which enables perfect duplication of your parts within .020″ every time. Complex shapes, stars, circles, and many different patterns are possible with a steel rule die. Using steel rule dies, we can die cut foam, sheet plastic, corrugated plastic, chipboard, fabric, rubber, felt, cork, thin metals, wood, acrylic, composites, fiberglass, magnets, sponge, custom die cuts or any other flat material normally found in the industry.

Hygienic Fabrics & Filters can use customer-supplied steel rule dies or order a steel rule die for the job based on a dimension drawing. The tooling cost to create the die will be separately listed in your quote from Hygienic Fabrics & Filters.

All of the products we cut require a very clean production environment and perfect packed appearance. We take care to follow all instructions for cutting and packaging regardless of job size. Hygienic Fabrics and Filters provides precision die cutting services supporting tight tolerances, small and large part sizes, and various production volumes.

Die-Cut Gaskets
