The Fluid Power Association of VDMA with its Fluid Power Sealing Group is organizing the

20th ISC – International Sealing Conference Stuttgart 2018

on October 10-11, 2018 at the University of Stuttgart. The Conference will be held under the scientific auspices of Dr.-Ing. Frank Bauer of the Institute of Machine Components of the University of Stuttgart.

The motto for the Conference will be

Sealing Technology – Beyond Limitations

At the 20th ISC – International Sealing Conference Stuttgart 2018, presentations on the following topics will be held:

  • Static Seals
  • Rotary Shaft Seals
  • Mechanical Seals
  • Reciprocating Seals (Hydraulics/Pneumatics)
  • Materials and Surfaces
  • Tribology
  • Simulation
  • Application in Practice

The aim of this conference is to present the results of scientific research, results of development and experiences of users, and to allow for transferring this information to, and sharing it with:

  • scientific institutions,
  • manufacturers/suppliers of seals and sealing systems,
  • users (manufacturers of hydraulic and pneumatic systems and components, machinery, automobile and plant manufacturers, but also automotive industry suppliers, aerospace and chemical industry),
  • manufacturers of preliminary products for sealing materials,
  • manufacturers of hydraulic fluids and lubricants, and
  • service providers, such as testing labs and engineering offices.

Sealing Technology – Beyond Limitations

Stagnation means regression.

By overcoming their former performance limits, seals contribute to the development of modern, environmentally friendly, efficient and high-performance technical products, such as pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, vehicles or machines and installations.
