In the present paper dynamic friction processes in seals are investigated. The undesired stick-slip effect of these components under real technical conditions is analyzed. Starting with the basics of stick-slip vibrations the development of an advanced seal design with improved properties is presented that prevents stick-slip. Finally, an optimization based on the extensive but simple stability analysis is shown by an expanded theory of stick-slip simulations.
