Our use cases

EKK GlideXTM mechanical face seals have significant lower friction and energy consumption (up to 90% less). Due to the lower energy consumption also heat generation is proportionally lower. This reduces the heat dissipation requirements of its environment, e.g. allowing use of lighter weight materials with lower heat conduction properties.

Application examples:
Light weight, compact rotor cooled electric motor
High speed compact (1-speed) gear box


- Low friction / energy consumption
- Excellent sealing
- High speed capabilities


- Stainless steel / Silicon carbide


- Application: electric drive train

Development Status

- In serial production (SOP 2021)

Development Partners

- Internal EKK / Universities

Further information

- Textured face seal surfaces (micro laser structure)
