Sealing systems used for non-metallic rod pneumatic drives have hard duty conditions, including the absence of any kind of lubricant and non-linear thermal regime. Due to this, the wear evolution of the lip -rod pair can be difficult to be estimated. The paper propose an ANN based method for wear prediction during service life of the lip seals, taking into account some seals’ working behavior influencing factors.
