Automated Lathe Cutting

Automatic lathe cutting is the process Prolon, Inc. utilizes for the manufacturing of high volume backup rings, packings, and thrust washers.

High volumes are typically required to justify the tooling cost required for the automatic molding tool required.  This department receives molded sleeve stock from the automatic molding department where the tube stock has been molded to specifications on the outside and inside diameters.

The automatic lathe cutting equipment has been specifically built to our specifications to produce extremely accurate cuts very efficiently.

We produce millions of rings for customers through this process annually.
