Q. Can you provide technical advice?

Ashton Seals have extensive experience in a variety of applications. The need for an increased level of product traceability has resulted in both the Quality and Commercial teams offering daily support to customers through the APQP process to completion of a signed off PSW and PPAP, all aided with material testing (the company has invested in new equipment this year) and prototyping through to assembly trials and best method assembly techniques.

Ongoing training for the Quality and Technical team at Ashton Seals ensures that they have the skills and knowledge to reverse engineer the seal kits that are no longer available for that 60 year old machine you need to keep running. Additionally our technical team are capable of working alongside customers' designers, providing guidance and assistance on seal type, materials, housing and parameters for the latest technology that they may be introducing to their portfolio.
