ERJ staff report (DS)
Weinheim - Freudenberg's Merkel unit has extended to the UK and Brazil, its Merkel Xpress service, which aims to make seals to order within a matter of hours.
Merkel Xpress manufactures almost all machinable seals on request and at short notice, even those with special dimensions of up to 4,000 mm. In addition to existing centers in Germany, the USA, France, and Italy, there now Merkel Xpress centers in Brazil and England.
The products are manufactured according to the customers' exact specifications using all standard sealing materials and many special materials within 24 hours-sometimes even faster. In addition to almost all PU materials-from hydrolysis-resistant to low-temperature-resistant and lubricant-filled varieties-NBR, HNBR, FKM, PTFE and PA are all available as standard materials.
These fast reaction times are made possible by the automation of the process chain from the CAD drawing to the operation of the machines. At present, over 260 preprogrammed production engineering seal designs can be called up at the touch of a button, and this number is rising continuously.
