Virtual Tour Simmerring® Production – The Nursery of Simmerring® Radial Shaft Seals
The Simmerring® is probably the best-known product from Freudenberg Sealing Technologies' product portfolio and is synonymous with radial shaft seals in many parts of the world. As early as 1932, Freudenberg product developer Walter Simmer developed the first Simmerring®, marking the beginning of a new era. The sealing ring consisted of a metal housing with integrated leather cover and delivered significantly better results than its predecessor model right from the start and thus quickly replaced the felt seals previously used. Later, the leather was replaced by an elastomer. and the Simmerring® has been continuously developed to this day.
