The World of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies
As the leading global manufacturer of sealing solutions, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has unique specialized knowledge in the sealing field. A portion of it has now been compiled in a recently published compendium, “The World of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies,” for interested customers, journalists and employees. More than 160 illustrated pages guide the reader on an entertaining and informative ride through the world of seals.
The trip is divided into six sections: The “Introduction” sheds light on Freudenberg Sealing Technologies and its more than 165-year history. But it also describes the development of sealing technology and the key modes of seal operation. In “Materials,” the most popular seal materials are presented – from natural rubber to advanced high-performance materials and composites. The chapter on “Applications” discusses the especially interesting requirements for applications and their solutions, and presents the most important products for specific areas of application – from dynamic to static seals all the way to special seals.
The chapter on “Quality” deals with development partnerships, testing expertise and exciting views inside component interiors through the use of computer tomography. The “Innovation” section explains how Freudenberg Sealing Technologies gains a competitive edge, for example, with a multiple-award-winning innovation process and the FST Academy. In “Outlook,” Dr. Ernst Osen and Dr. Eberhard Bock identify the developments that are driving sealing technology and the future trends that can be foreseen in markets, materials and applications.
