As a premier distributor of Manuli Hydraulics hose, fittings, and couplings, Camthorne supplies their full range of hydraulic products. We offer a while-you-wait assembly service for all stock hydraulic hoses and fittings. We aim to turn assemblies around in just a few minutes, reducing wait times for our customers, which in turn helps them to increase productivity and provide superior service to the end user.

Camthorne’s experience within the rubber and plastics industry extends to our provision of conveyor belting, agricultural belting, and roller re-coverings. We can help with the creation of new systems, the maintenance of current ones, and the production/refurbishment of old and discontinued parts.Belting Rollers
Camthorne are a leading manufacturer of gaskets in the UK, stocking materials that seal against a variety of chemicals under high temperatures and working pressures. We carry tooling for the quick turnaround of gaskets for all British Standard, ANSI150 and PN6-PN40 flanges in both full-face and IBC flange styles.
We can put together a quote for custom gaskets, no matter how large or small, in any material. For precision-cut sections and intricate profiles, we utilise water-jet cutting technology to ensure a finish that suits even the most unusual requirements. This method effectively eliminates tooling costs for one-off gaskets, small-batch orders and prototypes, allowing us to quote competitively for bespoke requests.
At Camthorne, we can manufacture anything, from one-off gaskets to large production runs in the thousands. We stock a range of rubber, sponge and non-asbestos materials – EPDM, neoprene, Viton, polyurethane, silicone, Klinger and Phoenix non-asbestos fibre, cork, and food-quality and FDA sheeting.
PVC Door Curtains
We manufacture bespoke PVC door curtains in-house, helping to reduce draught, maintain temperatures, and act as safety barriers within the workplace.
There are a multitude of uses and applications – acting as a barrier to dust and noise, maintaining temperatures in refrigeration applications, or helping protect against welding flash.
Our clear PVC provides excellent visibility, and allows easy passage for pedestrians and forklift trucks, and can easily be removed or replaced using the simple hanging system.
Press Machine Cutting
With our on site press machines and huge number of die cutting tools it gives us the ability to cut intricate profile shapes, gaskets and seals in a huge variety of soft materials in either sheet or roll forms.
To produce the profile or gasket the hydraulic press is used to force a strip steel or die tool through the material, this is a very fast and efficient production process, it can cut through material fast enough to allow large quantities of gaskets and seals to be produced each day, allowing large batches of material to be cut swiftly at low cost.
The die tools or cutting strips can be shaped according to your drawing or sample, from simple washers to highly intricate seals. Die tools are ideal for bespoke, prototype and large-batch orders, they maintain the very highest level of accuracy and repeatability.
If you’re looking for high repeat accuracy, in large production runs, our press machine service is ideal for your needs.
