CeraCon Ltd, based in the UK, offers a Contract Gasketing service which applies high performance foam seals directly to customer parts. The flexibility of our 6 axis robot systems, combined with our foam application technology mean that we can seal one-off prototypes through to high volume production quantities. CeraCon equipment can adjust the foam hardness being applied to the part, by controlling the ratio of material to air for the generation of the closed cell bubble structure. Changing robot speeds and flow rates mean we can vary bead width from 1.5mm to 16mm and above. We have a heat curing option to rapidly cure the material (@ 80ºC) within 2 to 8 mins.
CeraCon’s other core business is the manufacture of 1K foam application systems to apply 3D foam seals that can be incorporate within the customer’s business. Although we manufacture and integrate this equipment, we also offer a technical service to support sealing demands from concept design to full production integration. This technology is used across industry sectors for high level IP rated seals. CeraCon’s end-user customer base is extensive, including JLR, BMW, VW, Bentley, BT, Bowers & Wilkins, Lewmar Marine, and many UK light manufacturers.
