Seals and Gaskets: Automotive

Davis-Standard has years of experience supplying elastomer extruders, components, and complete systems for automotive seals. Our elastomer customer base is Tier 1 with installations worldwide. We supply duplex, triplex and quadruplex profile heads for supported and unsupported rubber profiles. We are industry leaders in turnkey applications including carrier forming, curing, coating, flocking and cutting/sawing of profiles.

We understand the importance of each component and offer a wide range of Davis-Standard-built and Davis-Standard-specified elastomer equipment with experienced partners. This includes hot air and microwave curing ovens, pre-and post-formers for rigid carrier, flocking booths, cooling tanks, pullers, cutters, laser marking, printing and drilling.

An example of our advanced elastomer technology is our purpose-designed DSREV rubber extruder. Advantages include our patented pneumatic roll feed system to provide uniform, consistent feed rate; electric heat/water-cooled heating for quicker response time, lower maintenance and smaller machine footprint, rugged Davis-Standard gearboxes, and Davis-Standard proven feedscrew designs to maximize output and minimize scorch.
