Forging & Extrusion

Raising the Bar for Forging and Extrusion Equipment

With an understanding that the forging and extrusion industry relies heavily on decades-old equipment, System Seals has redesigned the stock rubber V-packing used for forging equipment and developed a custom sealing solution with more than twice the normal lifespan.

System Seals’ proprietary Elite system integrates at least one polyurethane seal in conjunction with the traditional rubber-and-cloth seals that run up to 2100 milimeters in diameter. The combination maximizes the sealing abilities of rubber, while increasing the abrasion resistance of polyurethane.

Because each heavy duty press differs greatly, System Seals custom designs blended-material V-packing for every ram. System Seals specialists analyze previously worn seals to identify weaknesses, and then examine the design, condition and intricacies of the ram itself to recreate an entirely new V-packing.

Custom-designed products for heavy duty presses in the forging and extrusion industry from System Seals are often produced and delivered considerably more quickly than off-the-shelf replacements. And because lost productivity can run into the millions, System Seals can help with the installation and any technical support long after the sale, including any future maintenance and repair concerns.
