VIPA opens sealing division
24 March 2016
VIPA SpA has entered a business partnership with Chu Hung Oil Seals Industrial Co Ltd to create a sealing division, which will enable VIPA to expand the range of products it can offer its customers.
Taiwanese-based Chu Hung Oil Seals Industrial Co Ltd is a designer, manufacturer and supplier of rotary shaft seals and other sealing products. It has specialised in high-quality seals for over 25 years – supplying OEMs and aftermarket customers in over 150 countries.
The sealing division will enable VIPA to provide its customers with a design solution for a new application within days. Using 3D CAD technologies for both product and mould design, an average of 100 new seal designs, from simple single lip seals, to more complex cassette seals, to the latest PTFE sealing designs, can be successfully manufactured.
VIPA has a wide range of compound grades for each elastomer class, which satisfy most conditions and applications. For any special requirements VIPA will work in partnership with its supplier to provide a tailor-made solution. Once the correct compound has been selected – whether it’ll be for prototype or full production purposes – every batch of rubber has to pass VIPA’s stringent test specifications.
“We are proud to provide exceptional quality of the mould design, which enables us to provide the customer with the most cost-effective sealing solution. We recognise that good seal design starts with the right material selection for the application, which is why we put so much time and effort in developing and testing our ever increasing range of materials.”
