ttv is a strong supply partner for Walterscheid in the area of sealing technology.
The partnership was established around 10 years ago, and has been significantly stepped up since 2018. These days, it covers products such as end caps, O-rings, X-rings, shaft sealing rings, bearing seals and gamma sealing rings. The products from ttv are installed in the Walterscheid gear units, where they carry out a small but extremely important task for the perfect functioning and quality of the drive systems for agricultural, construction and special machinery.
This is achieved thanks to excellent material quality and a range of coordinated product details using special seals, among other solutions. For ttv Managing Director Harald Nitzschke and Industry Sales Team Leader Volker Hirsch, the company’s partnership with Waltenscheid is extremely important.
Waltenscheid’s quality standards and sustainability philosophy are the perfect fit for our company, says Harald Nitzschke, who wants to expand on the partnership over the coming years.
One of ttv’s distinctive strengths is its Engineering Solutions department, which develops and produces product solutions that are optimised for the specific application or customer requirements. The best example of this is the end cap with a special bore hole that was designed as a special solution for Walterscheid.
There are also concrete new solutions that are already in the testing phase. Shaft sealing rings and end caps with aluminium and sealing lacquer on the external diameter are set to be ordered shortly.
