When critical sealing really matters…

Sealing solutions for state-of-the-art medical and analytical equipment

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies offers targeted solutions (incl. component assembly) which serve the needs and solve the problems of our medical and life-sciences customers.

For more than 50 years, we have supported manufacturers of medical and analytical devices and continue to strive to be industry’s partner of choice. Drawing on our deep market knowledge and experience, we have developed materials, innovative seals and production processes which meet all critical requirements faced in this industry and set new industry standards:


Productivity and efficiency are our passion

Dentist Health

Globally, developed economies share the common threat of health care costs which grow much faster than the respective economies. – A trend which is not sustainable and needs to be stopped by increasing the efficiency of existing resources and reducing the life-time cost of the devices in use.

This is precisely where Freudenberg Sealing Technologies comes in. Productivity and efficiency are our passion. Together with our customers, we develop solutions which help to optimize the life-time of medical and analytical devices, reduce cost and make them even better by overcoming the biggest technological challenges and pushing the boundaries of what is considered possible.

  • Medical approvals/certifications (FDA, USP Class VI, ISO 109931, etc.) 
  • Resistance to very high and low temperatures 
  • Resistance to aggressive media 
  • Very durable materials 
  • Hygienic design (free of dead space) 
  • Micro parts with very low tolerances 
  • Clean room production 
  • Sterilized products 
  • Single packaging

True value for our customers

FST Usit-Ringe Usit-rings

For this purpose, we offer our customers an unparalleled range of standardized and customer-specific seals, molded parts and assemblies made from elastomers, silicone, polyurethane, thermoplastics and multi-component parts (e.g. rubber-metal or rubber-plastic solutions). Even during the design phase, we work closely with our partners to understand their specific requirements and guarantee cost efficiency by choosing the most sensible production process - in clean room environment as well, if required. Our in-house toolmaking and experienced development teams enable us to achieve extraordinary results when it comes to product geometry, production tolerances and manufacturing efficiency. These assets paired with our comprehensive simulation and testing processes which facilitate development and significantly reduce the time to market help us to create true value for our customers.

  

Our global team of experts is looking forward to also helping you to overcome your challenges and be successful in your market!
