Cutting Technologies

Avon Group offer Die cut Gaskets, Oscillating Knife cut high temperature Insulations, Water cut Fibres and Rubber.

These advanced technologies are both versatile in terms of material and flexible enough to adapt to high and low volumes.

Our focus on improving quality, repeatability and production efficiency is centred around our manufacturing plants in Bristol, Norton Canes and Brynmawr.

Die cut Gaskets

We can produce shapes straight from sheet or rolls, maximising material by rotating the heads 360° with multi-cavity tools. We typically produce thousands per hour dependent on our clients’ particular requirements.

Small Washers to tight tolerances

Avon Group produces over 100 million Washers a week. We have a series of high-speed, Die cutting machines dedicated to the production of high tolerance volume Washers. Typical runs of hundreds of thousands are produced using precision Steel Die tools.

Oscillating Knife cutter

This offers the very latest cutting technology without the need for Tooling. Using CAD, we are able to optimise any shape and/or design requirement for you. This process is innovative, fast and accurate and can be used for a range of materials, from Sponge Rubbers to Fibres and Insulations.

Semi automated Packaging

Kits of Seals and Gaskets are fed into our high speed automated bagging machines. This enables us to pack a wide range of products – bar-coded – straight into cartons.

Press cut Gaskets

Avon Group are able to provide a full range of Pipeline table Gaskets in both metric and imperial sizes. Traditionally we have produced on hydraulic cutting presses and these still serve us well today which allows us total low volume flexibility. As an alternative however, we can cut bespoke sizes using Knife or Water cutting technology. Our range of materials is very comprehensive, broadly consisting of non- asbestos Fibres for above ground Heating, Pipelines and Petrochemical uses with EPDM for below ground potable water pipes.


Our brand new, state of the art 3D routing machine gives us the ability to route intricate chamfered parts. The high precision CNC controlled cutting bed gives an excellent cut finish and high accuracy, offering repeatability to produce Gaskets from high temperature Insulation boards, Plastic, Metal, Wood and Foam.
