Dipl.-Ing. Bernhard Richter

Independent sealing expert in Großbottwar, Germany

Decision support in handling with seals

After he graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from the university Stuttgart Bernhard Richter was employed by one of the world’s leading sealing manufacturers for more than 10 years, 7 of them as head of applications engineering of the European business division O-rings, before he founded the O-Ring-Test-Laboratory Richter in 1996.

Since then he – as an independent sealing expert – passes his wide knowledge of elastomer materials, his application-technical knowledge of O-rings and his experience from many failure analyses on in his here offered seminars. His ability to convey complex coherences in a comprehensible way is especially appreciated and has made him known beyond his seminars through numerous lectures and publications.

Because of his daily experience with sealing users, he knows their practical questions and problems. His independence assists him in arguing free from sales strategical thoughts. Thereby he offers important decision support in handling with seals.
