Tech Talk on High Speed Rotary Seals for eMobility

Over 125 million electric vehicles are predicted to be on the road by 2030. Within electric vehicles, about 70% of components differ from those in vehicles powered by gasoline.

One key component of an electric vehicle is the electric drive unit, which combines the electric motor, transmission and power electronics into a single unit.

In his lecture, Sergio Amorim discusses:

  • The unique sealing challenges of the electric drive unit
  • Why high-speed rotary seals are necessary for e-axle applications
  • Lubrication in transmissions and material compatibility
  • Two new HiSpin® seals specially developed for use in eMobility applications

This Tech Talk was recorded in September 2018. Since then, both HiSpin ® HS40 and HiSpin ® PDR RT seals have passed over 3,000 hours in endurance testing.
