carco-topOverview of Carco

MORE THAN A CENTURY OF EXPERIENCE

From leather seals for hydropower plants in the Alps back in year 1900 to today’s giant seals for tunnel boring machines. CARCO is a global seal supplier covering a variety of seal profiles and materials, from fabric reinforced elastomers to thermoplastic polymers.

This is the CARCO evolution in more than a century.

Today CARCO is a Group of companies with more than 100 people in 5 Countries. Headquarter is in Basiano (Milan – Italy), with sales offices in Germany, France, USA and China. Manufacturing facilities are in Italy and USA.

Never compromising on quality, we have been manufacturing a huge number of rotary and hydraulic seals with no limit in diameter.

Each CARCO seal takes large responsibility, as we are dedicated to challenging and critical applications, there is no room for mistakes.

In 1992 CARCO was amongst the first ISO certified companies in Italy.

FAST AND EXPERTS IN WHAT WE DO

Short delivery time is part of CARCO. Large diameter seals for metal forging presses or giant wind mills are available in 1 week or less.

CARCO is application oriented: to satisfy the customer’s requirements we need to know the machinery in which our seal is fitted.

Our technical department specifies the correct seal profile and material to offer the longest seal life and prevent unscheduled machine shutdown.

CARCO engineers recommend: type of seal, seal housing, lubrication, metalwork hardness and roughness, etc. – the complete project.

We can also provide FEA analysis so we can predict the behavior of the seal under certain conditions.

Our test rigs enable us to explore new projects and our laboratory can test the chemical compatibility of our materials with any fluid.

We can have CARCO staff replace seals on site, worldwide, with gluing and hot joint technologies to prevent costly machine disassembling.
