NORMA Group, a global market leader in engineered joining technology, will be supplying fuel quick connectors with steel housings to a French automobile manufacturer. The quick connectors are extremely shock resistant and reduce the risk of fuel line leakage in the event of a collision. Around 1.3 million vehicles are to be fitted with NORMA Group connectors by about 2023.
“Our connection solutions help people feel safer in vehicles,” says Dr Michael Schneider, member of NORMA Group’s management board. “Thanks to our broad product range and our decades of expertise in the field of fluid transport, we are able to meet our customers’ increasing safety requirements with effective solutions.”
The quick connectors are used for the reliable connection of fuel pipes. Due to the steel housing, the quick connectors are extremely shock-resistant and thus more break proof than pure plastic quick connectors. This significantly reduces the risk of fuel leakage in the event of a collision and ensures greater safety for the driver and passengers.
The quick connectors are manufactured at NORMA Group’s plant in Guichen, France. Customers can configure the connectors according to their individual requirements: various variants are available for the housing, retaining clip, sealing ring and angle.
