Seals are important components of all technical systems - from cars to kitchen machines to wind turbines. Good, long-lasting seals cannot be bought, other than perhaps sealing washers. Well-functioning seals are designed, manufactured, assembled, and serviced as necessary. Therefore, it's a fact: solid understanding of the basics of sealing technology in all areas is essential.

Target Audience

Developers, designers, manufacturers, buyers, application engineers, and anyone who uses seals in their daily work.

Main Topics

  • Principles of sealing moving machine parts
  • Material development as a foundation for secure and functional elastomer seals
  • Friction and dependability
  • Principles and application of hydraulic seals
  • Static sealing
  • FIP seals in the drivetrain - design and construction
  • FEM simulation of polymer components
  • Static and dynamic fiber-reinforced gaskets
  • Prediction of seal reliability and service life
  • Sealing of grease-affected systems
  • Shaft surfaces for radial shaft seals
  • Lubricant compatibility of elastomers
  • Simmerings
  • Contact-free sealing - a reliable alternative


Participants will acquire a solid foundation of sealing technology knowledge. They will be able to assess sealing points, select appropriate sealing elements, recognize good and bad advice, estimate lubricant influences, instruct on manufacture and assembly, and to analyze and avoid damage.
