Sealing Solutions for Forklifts

Reducing downtime with innovative seals, bushings and custom molded parts

Forklift trucks have become indispensable in a variety of work environments. They play a valuable role in manufacturing facilities and warehouses ensuring items are in the right place at the right time. Consequently, forklifts are often in constant use.

Seals and wear rings play a critical role in forklift applications and must withstand heavy loads while ensuring continuous, efficient operation.

At Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, our engineers partner with customers to develop sealing solutions to meet unique application needs. We are experts in developing, manufacturing and supplying the sealing solution you need, when and how you need it.

A multitude of attachment options are available for forklifts to extend their range and capabilities. Hydraulic cylinders and valves supporting forklift attachments need to be reliable and withstand heavy loads. While preventing leakage both internally and externally on the cylinders, sealing solutions must offer easy installation and long service life.

Drivetrain Components

Rotary seals, engineered molded parts, custom machined Orkot® profiles seal and support the vital drivetrain components that keep the forklift operating efficiently.

Hydraulic System

High-performance radial oil seals, engineered molded parts, Quad-Ring® seals/X-Rings and O-Rings in the hydraulic system ensure all components on the forklift function seamlessly.

Fuel System

Forklifts have three primary options when it comes to what powers the truck: an internal combustion engine, electric power and hydrogen fuel cells. These three options are fundamentally different and require unique sealing solutions to seal system components, prevent leakage and keep fuel and lubrication from being contaminated by outside particles.
