Machine Tools

Your global partner for the full spectrum of reliable, innovative sealing solutions in the Machine Tools Industry

Machine tools are capital-intensive investment goods that require engineering excellence, know-how and long-lasting, quality components. No matter whether you are manufacturing classical CNC machines, industrial robots, textile, printing or packaging machines – your company is an expert in its field and directs a team of highly specialized engineers and technicians who push the bounds of what is technically feasible every day. You want these experts to focus on your core business and not worry about the right sealing solution. That is exactly where Freudenberg Sealing Technologies comes in.


Replacing mineral oil with synthetic and biodegradable oils

FST O-Ring PTFE

The machine tools market is increasingly looking for ways to replace mineral oil with synthetic and biodegradable oils – and not just because of the heightened awareness of nature-friendly lubricants. Synthetic oils can tolerate temperatures that would consume petroleum-based oils, and their lifespan is much longer. Of course, this greatly increases the demands on sealing solutions with regard to operating life and temperature resistance. To respond to these demands, we offer all our key seals in special ACM or PTFE. We naturally have the right compounds to enable you to use any biodegradable lubricant with our seals – just contact us to find out more and learn about the right solution to meet your requirements.

Growing markets throughout the world

The global machine tools market is marked by an enormous structural shift toward Asia, especially China. Asia's share in global demand accounts for about two-thirds of the world market. With this in mind, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies expanded its production footprint and logistics network to enable us to provide you with the tailored service and supply that you need globally – and naturally in Asia as well. Besides following and understanding the trends of the machine tools industry, finding the right answers in a timely way is crucial to success. This is precisely the point where we would like to invite you to begin a close R&D cooperation with us. Take advantage of our sealing expertise and save your engineering resources to focus on maximizing the functionality of the machine tools of tomorrow.


Key industry trends

At Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, we are dedicated to the machine tools industry and understand the key trends that you are facing. So we have developed tailored sealing responses to these trends. They enable you to successfully compete in your industry and not worry about using the right sealing solution. Below you will find examples of how we are addressing some of the key industry trends. Of course, there is much more that we would like to share with you in a personal discussion.

Ever-increasing speed and efficiency needs for machine tools

Metal removal rates are faster today than ever before. What was considered high-speed machining just a few years ago is regarded as conventional today. With every generation, your customers expect CNC machines to become more accurate at increased speeds and feeds. This higher efficiency and speed enable shorter processing times and cost reductions for your customers. These requirements increase the demands on the mechanisms of your processing equipment and especially sealing components. Place your trust in Freudenberg Sealing Technologies when you are looking for sealing solutions that withstand these higher speeds, operate under high temperatures and are made of lower-friction materials. Our performance in product design and our material expertise are outstanding.
