Twice the Number of Shapes

Have you ever needed to calculate the square footage of an oddly shaped room? Or the volume of a complex space like an HVAC unit? Calculating the area or volume of shapes can be frustrating and time consuming.

Developed with the engineer in mind, the Area & Volume Calculator is an easy-to-use tool to support you with these tasks. The tool, available both on the web and as a mobile app, supports a full range of area and volume calculations – just select a shape, input your measurements and the tool quickly calculates area, perimeter, volume and weight.

In the latest version of this tool, we’ve doubled the number of shapes and sub-shapes available for calculation to over 170 2D and 3D shapes.

You’ll find the Area & Volume Calculator web tool at tss.trelleborg.com by clicking Design Support & Engineering Tools under “Tools & Resources.” The app is available for download for iPhone and iPad and Android.

Supporting Hydraulic Component Design

The Hydraulic System Calculator has been developed for design engineers working with hydraulic cylinders, pumps, motors and pipes. This intuitive tool supports the design of hydraulic components around single or double-acting cylinders.

By entering cylinder dimensions and pressure or oil flow parameters, you can quickly calculate area, volume, force, velocity, time, outflow and cylinder ratio. Backward compatibility is also offered for some parameters.

The Hydraulic System Calculator is available both as a web tool and a mobile app. The web version is available at tss.trelleborg.com by going to Design Support & Engineering Tools under  “Tools & Resources”.

Latest App: Seals Catalog

The Seals Catalog, the newest member of our app family, brings the high-powered function of our web catalog to you in a mobile friendly format.

You can use the app to easily search for and filter products by item number, type of seal or operating conditions. The app gives you access to detailed product descriptions of thousands of seals,
as well as material data sheets. This easy-to-use app lets you select seals, load up your shopping cart and send it through to your local marketing company for quotation.

You are guaranteed a rapid response, making the whole process of specifying and ordering seals easier and quicker than ever!

The Seals Catalog App is available for download for iPhone and iPad and Android.
