Here at Advanced Seals and Gaskets Ltd, our commitment to excellence is exemplified by our extensive array of cutting-edge plant and machinery, enabling us to craft bespoke Seals, Gaskets, Strip, Washers, Pads, Fabrications, and much more.

On occasion, certain materials require specialized machining beyond traditional punching methods. This is where our state-of-the-art drills come into play. Our pillar drills effortlessly handle materials that prove too challenging for conventional punching techniques. These versatile machines allow us to create holes that span the entire product thickness or incorporate specific depths, including countersunk holes, with utmost ease and precision.

In addition, during our quest for efficiency, we have developed a series of bespoke clamps and jigs designed to securely hold multiple parts, optimizing the drilling process. This approach allows us to drill multiples of parts in a single seamless action, expediting production and enabling us to deliver high quality parts, quicky.
