Boost your ride with next-generation e-axle sealing now
Electric vehicles are growing rapidly in popularity and are predicted to make up 40% of the total vehicle population by 2030. This though depends on the existence of viable technology extending the range of travel from one battery charge. One specific focus area is increasing the efficiency of e-axle technology. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions engineers have designed our new HiSpin® seals, new high-speed rotary seals to enhance next-generation e-axles.
Sealing technology for e-axles
E-axles, a major technology in electric vehicles, which combines the electric motor and gearbox in a single unit, present a variety of sealing requirements:
New rotary seals developed for e-mobility
Two new, high-velocity rotary seals have been developed by Trelleborg Sealing Solutions product development engineers to meet electric car manufacturer demands. The HiSpin® PDR RT and the HiSpin® HS40 seals make a significant step in overcoming issues related to sealing in extreme conditions at high rotary speeds. This next-generation sealing technology enables electric cars to meet the ultimate goal of travelling the same distance as a gasoline vehicle on one charge.
High speed elastomer rotary seal that meets demanding temperature requirements of e-Mobility applications offering energy efficient sealing and extended lifetime performance
HiSpin® PDR RT and the HiSpin® HS40 seals are featured in this video. They make a significant step in overcoming issues related to sealing in extreme conditions at high rotary speeds.
