Multicomponent Technology Consolidating Multiple Functions into One Engineered Part
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions multicomponent technology bonds two or more materials to create a single, often complex, component that would otherwise entail the assembly of numerous parts. As well as sealing, innovative designs can build in adjacent functions, such as structure, housing, and support.
Converting an assembly into a single component gives significant technical and commercial benefits. It alleviates risks associated with assembly and overcomes any issues related to tolerance stack-up, blind assembly or secondary operations.
Neal Borg, Product Manager for Multicomponent Technology, explains: “Our innovative capability can significantly improve the performance of a sealing component, since bonded pieces, unlike assembled components, are leak-free, lighter weight and more resistant to corrosion. It brings tangible benefits to equipment manufacturers in many sectors, helping them to meet design goals, such as making products smaller and more compact.
“In addition, this technology simplifies the handling and assembly processes. Rather than a number of separate pieces, which need to be procured, stored and assembled individually, multicomponent parts need less space and assembly effort, making them a cost-effective sealing solution.”
