Get the tools you need to get to market — and reduce the time you’ll need to see return on your investment! Gripper Gasket’s innovative Research & Development team is available to transform your ideas into reality.

From initial concept through design and manufacturing, you’ll get the competitive advantage of working with the same dedicated crew that engineers Gripper’s pioneering rubber products.

Your concept will be developed by Gripper’s comprehensive R&D operation, which utilizes state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and processes like these:

  • Engineering design in SolidWorks® CAD 3D Modeling software
  • Tooling development in Mastercam® CAD-CAM software
  • A full on-site machine shop, maintained at peak performance by a dedicated service crew
  • Rapid prototyping
  • A one-stop, vertically-integrated manufacturing operation — combining custom formulation rubber mixing, molding operations, metal stamping, tooling, and final assembly in a single campus

The entire operation is tracked via a modern material requirement planning (MRP) system, supported by an experienced staff of professional technicians, engineers and managers. In addition, our world-class quality assurance team offers extensive on-site testing capabilities to ensure the functionality and consistency of your concept.
