MI Custom Die Cutting part sample array


By industrial classification, we are most aptly described as a gasket manufacturer, though most of our products aren't "gaskets" to our customers.  In short, we, first, convert  sheeted and rolled materials (mostly rubber, plastics, and other non-rigid materials) into usable die-cut, slit, sheared, or otherwise precision-cut shapes.  These products include many standard and semi-standard products like rubber washers, sponge weather stripping, and flange gaskets, plus tens of thousands of parts manufactured to customer specifications.  Secondly, we stock and distribute many molded and extruded products like rubber o-rings, grommets, and blade seals, also made to both standard and customer specifications.

We serve customers ranging from Fortune 100 companies to municipalities, small manufacturers, and distributors, as well as inventors, entrepreneurs, and hobbyists.  We make standard products like flange gaskets, bolted tank strip gasketing, plastic and rubber washers, and manufacture or distribute tens of thousands of different custom components.  All told, we have parts in more places than we could ever count, including aircraft, medical equipment, irrigation systems, HEPA air filtration facilities, bridges and buildings, water and sewer systems, all kinds of electronic devices, and maybe even in your own bathroom faucet or GPS unit.

Our wide array of manufacturing and distribution capabilities have been developed to meet the high standards of Aerospace and Medical Equipment manufacturers, amongst others, as well as the comprehensive ISO 9000:2008 quality well as more ordinary applications.   Click HERE for more about us.
