The design of fluid sealed surface areas is a challenge for any engineer, due to mechanical, thermal and chemical influences. In the field of drive technology a further challenge is the transmission of torques onto the sealing area. Designers have to consider all these influences when making the pertinent layout. If sealing fluids are used as sealing agents, the designer has to decide whether to design the sealing area as a mere force-locked connection or as a combination of force-locked and adhesive bonded. When connections which are force-locked and join adhesive bond are chosen connections conditions and details at the sealing gap have to be known. Due to new measuring techniques and the visualization of the measuring results, it is possible to obtain all the necessary details of the surface sealing area.
