Longer lifespan through simulation

FEM calculation

FEM calculation of a sealing lip subject to high stress on a bonded piston seal

The functional and service life requirements for elastomer seals are becoming increasingly stringent. KACO uses modern simulation methods, such as the finite element method (FEM), when developing components. We also simulate important parameters in the manufacturing process. The simulation calculations focus on material characteristics, contact and friction. In particular, this simulation involves the KACO model, a specially developed material model for describing elastomers.
