Aachen Colloquium 2019
28th Aachen Colloquium
The Colloquium provides a wide range of technical presentations addressing current challenges of the vehicle and engine industry. Besides the presentations, the technical exhibition is a highlight of the Aachen Colloquium.
EKK Eagle Industry was present again and presented its solutions for the next generation mobility, like the range of GlideX™ products.
GlideX™: less friction, zero leakage
GlideX™ is a laser textured seal that has been designed to reduce friction in mechanical components by eighty to ninety percent. The revolutionary GlideX™ technology makes it possible to control the microfilms between the mechanical components, which was previously impossible. This way, GlideX™ is able to offer zero fluid leakage and it helps to increase for instance the intercooler’s life span or prevents fluid emission to the environment. And because ten percent of the power loss of an engine can be attributed to friction, GlideX™ additionally contributes to the reduction of hydrocarbon emissions.
