Development of gaskets and seals for the most extreme applications

Development of gaskets and seals for the most extreme applications

We have been designing and manufacturing gaskets for 50 years. We focus on this product because, to quote Antoine de Saint-Exupéry “what is essential is invisible to the eye”. In the same way, the world of seals is also mainly invisible to the eye, yet it is essential for the operation of any mechanical, mechatronic or electronic system.

From the very beginning, we have been bringing quality into the seals industry, where attention to detail and technological progress are central to the performance and reliability of every device. 
Product design and the production process take place on our general headquarters, where we use 3D and FEM modelling software as well as numerous laboratory tests and material analyses to optimise seal morphology and to be sure we always offer the right solution.
Our products can be sent to any destination, thanks to a widespread global network of production plants.

CUSTOMER NEEDS

SEALS, CO-ENGINEERING AND YOUR REQUIREMENTS

We always start with your actual requirements so that we can work together on the range of application, the fluid in question, pressures, temperatures, external environment, and the static and dynamic stresses on the structures and components the seal needs to couple with.

LA SCELTA DEL MATERIALE PER LE TUE GUARNIZIONI SU MISURA

Lavoriamo costantemente alla ricerca dei migliori materiali che rispondano alle diverse necessità di applicazione e di sollecitazione termica e meccanica.
La scelta della materia prima più adatta alla specifica applicazione è una fase quindi strategica nella configurazione della guarnizione, in quanto permette di raggiungere le prestazioni desiderate in termini di qualità e di costi. 
Ogni applicazione necessita di caratteristiche diverse: Athena ha la soluzione giusta per soddisfare qualsiasi problematica di tenuta.

THE MOST IMPORTANT STAGES IN SEAL DEVELOPMENT

INITIAL PROTOTYPES: At this stage we carry out the initial functional tests and try out the future potential of the product

ADVANCED PROTOTYPES: The prototype begins to mature and approach the definitive version of the project
 
PRE-PRODUCTION SERIES
In this stage, the seals are made using mass production equipment; at the same time, we perfect the production process.
 
MASS PRODUCTION
It is the result of experience gained during the three previous stages: now the seal is optimised both as a product and as a production process, and is ready to be released on the market.

Discover the various types of gaskets that Athena Industries produces, including insulating gaskets, gaskets for water pumps and gaskets for boilers.
