Through feedback from our customers, we determined that a common issue in seal failures was an improper spring weld or no weld at all. With an improper spring weld, a “high point” on the sealing lip can cause localized pressure on the seal leading to premature wear and eventual failure. In the case of no spring weld at all, a gap can form leaving an area in the seal with no support again leading to failure. Maudlin recognized that welding the spring is sometimes a difficult task so we researched the best available methods and determined laser welding is the way to go. If you have a critical sealing application let Maudlin help give you the best chance for success with our laser welding equipment and expertise
