A market for the future
A comprehensive range of Hutchinson bonded seals and O-rings are manufactured for the heavy truck air conditioning, cooling and injection systems; brake systems including ABS, gear boxes, shock absorbers, passenger compartment safety, transmissions and power steering. They are available in many combinations of metals and compounds (FKM, EPDM, HNBR, AEM, FMVQ, ACM, NBR), meeting the customers’ high specification performance requirements, making Hutchinson the preferred number one supplier. All of Hutchinson’s products are supported by a worldwide technical resource team offering both technical innovation and development.
Over the past thirty years the Hutchinson bonded seal has become firmly established in the Heavy Truck manufacturing sector and continues to develop a strengthening presence, with parts supplied direct to major OE and tier customers worldwide. The engineering concept underpinning Hutchinson’s aim is to be the premier customer choice in all applications using a parallel thread with a pressure differential.
One of the typical markets is the fuel system. With an ever increasing emphasis on its quality, high performance and a zero fuel leakage target, the demand for new heavy-goods vehicle is increasing year on year. We believe that Hutchinson is continuing to make a real impact in this market sector with a new range of seals being developed. The success of our seals has led to the replacement of current sealing solutions at most OEM’s.
