Your relationship with Darcoid’s technical team starts with a quick on-boarding conversation. You can shorten that engagement time by pre-completing our Engineering Request Form. After we’ve learned what’s most important about your application and what constraints we have to work with, our team will work up a selection of options.
In some instances, we can support our recommendations with FEA modeling analysis. With the correct inputs, non-linear FEA generally gives a high degree of theoretical confidence in the comparative performance of Seal A vs Seal B.
Where we feel FEA does not indicate a strong advantage of a particular design, we can deploy our Seal Test Bench to develop empirical performance data for comparison.
After running your application through a combination of standard design tools, our broad experience of what works and what doesn’t, and possibly FEA modeling, we will make our recommendation. From there we can create evaluation prototypes from anywhere from hours to weeks. If you don’t have the bandwidth to confirm suitability, we can deploy our Seal Test Bench capability to develop empirical performance data.
Your program manager will be checking in on development milestones but generally you’ll be interfacing with our apps engineers directly. No spin, no hard sell - just you and Darcoid’s seal application experts. Engage with a Darcoid engineer to get started.
While we encourage early-stage engagement, we are happy to engage with you at any stage in development. If early-stage collaboration is not possible we can fast track our support if you’re under pressure to find a fix for a surprise failure. Here’s more on how to engage with Darcoid’s Technical Team.
