NORMA Group receives major order 20 November 2015

NORMA Group has received a major order from a German car manufacturer to equip several million vehicles worldwide by the year 2027.

Beginning in 2017, the contract includes NORMAQUICK PS3 quick connectors and NORMAPLAST SV hose and pipe connectors in the nominal sizes 6mm – 32mm, which will be used in vehicle cooling systems.

NORMAQUICK PS3 quick connectors, made of recyclable materials, connect heating and cooling lines and charge-air systems. The compact design of the connector enables it to be used even where mounting conditions are tight and enables quick installation. Thanks to the integrated mounting bracket, PS3 quick connectors can be installed and removed without the use of tools. Assembly can also take place during fully automated processes. An integrated gasket ensures the proper tightness.

NORMAPLAST SV hose and pipe connectors connect plastic pipes such as PA6 and PA12 pipes. They are made of black polyamide 6 or polyamide 12 with 30% glass fibres and can be supplied with O-rings.

“We look forward to working with our customer on this large-scale global project,” says Werner Deggim, CEO of NORMA Group. “For us, this is also about our responsibility for a cleaner environment. After all, our weight-reduced products help lower emissions by reducing the total weight of vehicles and, in turn, reducing fuel consumption.
