    Calculation of Cutting Length

    Each packing style requires a specific cut length depending on shaft size and Cross section. Please enter underneath the required data and our calculator will work out the exact cut length.

    For best results use an PROPACK packing cutter (see Tools).

    Calculating of Cutting length

    L = (d+s) •π• x [mm]
    s = (D-d)/2
    x = Adding factor = 2 up to 8 %

    Adding factor in % of middle line circumference = L

    Adding factor for Shaft diameter

    up to 49 mm, 6 - 8 %
    50 to 99 mm, 4 - 6 %
    101 to 200 mm, 3 - 5 %
    201 mm and above, 2 - 4 %
