Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies Inc. Key Developments

Xpress Service from Freudenberg-NOK Quickly Delivers Made-to-Order Sealing Solutions to Customers

With Freudenberg Xpress, Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies (Freudenberg-NOK) is offering a unique service: machined seals from the original materials used in Freudenberg-NOK series production. The seals, that have the same material characteristics and life spans identical to the original Freudenberg-NOK series products, can be made-to-order individual parts intended as replacements, prototypes or cost-effective small production runs. The agenda is always: ordered, machined and quickly delivered. In the chemical or pharmaceutical industries, mechanical and thermal characteristics are of the high importance. Naturally, this also applies to machined seals. In the food industry, numerous approved materials from the "Xpress Service" are available to Freudenberg-NOK customers. All the seals from Freudenberg Xpress for the processing industry, from O-rings to complex molded parts, are machined from original Freudenberg-NOK premium materials and thus have unique characteristics and industry-specific approvals. Freudenberg Xpress offers highly resistant seals made of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), polyurethane and Fluoroprene® XP to meet the specific requirements of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Due to specially developed production processes, the machined Freudenberg Xpress seals achieve the material properties of injection-molded or pressed original parts. For surfaces, Freudenberg Xpress sets extremely high quality standards with a maximum average roughness index Ra of 2.38 µm and a roughness depth of 13.7 µm. The special aspect: even as part of its rapid service, Freudenberg-NOK cuts off the seal edge even though this is a complex process from series production. In this way, the seals achieve a significantly longer life span, which is proven by benchmarking.

Freudenberg-NOK Introduces New FKM That Offers Outstanding Cold Temperature Characteristics to Processing Industry

Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies announced that a new FKM (Fluorocarbon) material 75 FKM 38269 has been added to its product portfolio. The new material is particularly flexible in extreme cold and broadens Freudenberg-NOK's ability to offer fluorinated sealing materials to customers that remain responsive across a wide range of temperatures. Seals made of FKM are used throughout the processing industry. In the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, FKM is a good solution for applications with nonpolar solvents, aliphatic compounds, fats and oils. In the food industry, seals made of FKM are used when high temperatures exist or if the operating environment has proven aggressive and unsuitable to other elastomers such as EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) or HNBR (hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber). FKM is resistant to pure citrus juices and is suitable for contact with dairy products. The new 75 FKM 38269 serves as the standard material for O-rings and incorporates the above-mentioned characteristics. Thanks to approvals in accordance with FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 and EU Regulation 1935/2004, along with its classification in Class I of the 3-A® Sanitary Standards, the material is suited to the food industry worldwide.

Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies Plans to Expand Findlay, Ohio Facility to Accommodate New Manufacturing Processes

Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies plans to expand its automotive sealing facility and hire new employees to meet increasing customer requirements for quality components. Freudenberg-NOK's Findlay plant produces approximately 700 high performance plastic parts for customers including vehicle manufacturers and tier one and two suppliers using manufacturing processes. The company expects to invest approximately $8.6 million in construction and equipment upgrades and the expansion and construction will be complete by winter, 2015.
