Researching and designing products so they can be manufactured by the most efficient and cost-effective processes should always include the consideration of seal design. All too often, the sealing requirements of a product’s development are left to later in the design process. When planned for in advance, it can save companies production and supply chain time, effort, money, and improved product performance and product life.
