This paper deals with the experimental evaluation of contact pressure at the interface between an elastomeric rod seal for pneumatic cylinders and its metallic counterpart without interposing any intrusive measuring device. A new test bench, which is able to measure the radial force exerted by a rod seal displaced at constant velocity on a sensorized portion of a cylinder rod over time, was designed and manufactured. The seal was pressurised to reproduce actual working conditions. A data postprocessing methodology was developed for an indirect evaluation of contact pressure starting from the experimental data set of the radial force exerted by the seal on the rod. At first, the measured radial force signal was filtered and properly fitted obtaining a differentiable function; then, contact pressure distribution was computed as a function of radial force time derivative, seal velocity and rod diameter. Preliminary experimental results are presented.
