A Look Behind the Scenes at Trelleborg

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions

– Silicone technology for precision applications – Trelleborg Sealing Solutions showcases the latest advances in silicone technology for precision applications in a free interactive webinar on March 21, 2024.

The event includes a “behind the scenes” tour of the Trelleborg Stein am Rhein production facility in Switzerland, providing an insight into its high-precision production processes – including under cleanroom conditions – and an interactive platform for experts and industry peers to share ideas.

“We will be demonstrating our entire LSR production capabilities in Stein am Rhein, from toolmaking and design through to production and quality testing,” says Jarno Burkhardt, General Manager at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, based in Switzerland. “Attendees will get a look behind the scenes of our clean rooms, where we manufacture very sophisticated parts for the healthcare & medical industry.”

The session, entitled “Collaborative Innovation – Solutions in Silicone”, offers insights into how Trelleborg works with customers to optimize high-quality components for industries including automotive, food and beverage, and healthcare and medical.

Trelleborg will demonstrate the development of high-precision LSR molded and multi-component parts using precision processing tools to produce high-consistency silicone rubber solutions, including components with complex geometries. These are manufactured at strategically positioned global production sites, all run in a consistent manner worldwide using the same processes and materials.

“A major advantage of our production facility in Stein am Rhein is that we have toolmaking and design here on site, primarily for new tools and customizations,” says Jérôme Berger, Project Engineer. “We also carry out group support internally. This means that we use our experience in toolmaking and processing LSR to design and produce certain parts ourselves.”

The Connex Livestream event will be held in English on March 21, 2024, from 09:45 CET to approximately 12.00 CET. Participation is free. It is broadcast live from the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Innovation Center in Stuttgart, Germany, and is aimed at industry partners, customers and interested parties in Europe and Asia.

Highlights of the agenda include the selection and creation of LSR and high-consistency rubber (HCR) materials for specific application requirements; a virtual tour of the LSR production halls in Stein am Rhein; and a session on engineering solutions from initial concept through to series production. The event concludes with a panel discussion highlighting the technical excellence provided by customized silicone solutions.
