This year, the jury was excited by the progress of SEW EURODRIVE. An independent Huber Verlag panel of experts consisting of professors, scientists, industry branch experts, and trade journalists, considered the Premium Sine Seal a revolutionary sealing solution for gearmotors. Thus on March 20, 2018, the panel awarded SEW EURODRIVE with the coveted INDUSTRIEPREIS 2018 (PDF, 73 kB) . Our new oil seal was able to triumph over several hundred other companies in one of 14 award categories.
Rainer Kölmel, CEO of the Huber Verlag für Neue Medien GmbH and initiator of the INDUSTRIEPREIS explained out first place in the category „drive and fluid technology“ as follows: „With the new Premium Sine Seal SEW-EURODRIVE GmbH & Co KG has developed a product with the ability to provide many industrial companies with a significant added value.“ Mr. Kölmel further expressed how happy he was that he could award the INDUSTRIEPREIS 2018 to such an advanced innovation.
The new oil seal „Premium Sine Seal“ is literally ahead of the curve. Due to its sinusoidal sealing lip, the oil seal has twice the service life than other common products on the market, and offers many further advantages:
• The heat generated in the sealing gap is reduced with the result that the contact surface shows less wear
• Dirt particles that may have ingressed are practically pumped out of the sealing contact, thus preventing malfunctions of the sealing contact.
• According to laboratory-based surveillance, shaft wear is no longer a problem; the Premium Sine Seal can be replaced by a new seal on a used shaft at the same position.
• Instead of the usual tension spring, the Premium Sine Seal is optimally pressed onto the shaft by the membrane stiffness alone. This reduces power loss while increasing the efficiency of the drive.
