Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Launches Revolutionary Sealing Solutions Configurator Online to Aid Engineers in Seal Specification

FT. WAYNE, IN--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, a worldwide leading supplier of high-quality sealing and bearing systems, today announces the availability of a revolutionary new online tool. The Sealing Solutions Configurator is the first tool of its kind offered by any seal supplier and allows engineers to identify a proven sealing solution for their specific application.

The solutions provided in the Sealing Solutions Configurator are based on newly created consensus of design, each of which has been proven in practice. Users can configure the solutions for their applications and store them in a project area. Any stored project can be opened and reworked afterwards. Once a project is stored the user gets access to additional services through the tool, such as downloading the corresponding CAD drawing of items recommended, creating a PDF of the configuration result, sending a request for quotation or request for advice.

"The Sealing Solutions Configurator is a unique online tool," says Claude Kornelis, Manager Web & Engineering Tools. "Significant time and resources have been invested in developing this interactive tool that will revolutionize the way that we work with our customers. Most importantly, it will make the jobs of engineers easier and speed up the design process, accelerating time to market."

Requests for advice will be picked up by technical experts in the user's local Trelleborg Sealing Solutions marketing company who will contact the user and assist in development of their sealing solution. This tool facilitates easy discussion of the project as all parameters are visible to both the customer and the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions technical expert online.
