New NORMA Group quick connector meets the highest requirements in vehicles
Maintal, Germany, April 5, 2017 - NORMA Group, a global market leader in engineered joining technology, has developed a new quick connector made of plastic. The V2-XC ("X-treme Conditions") withstands particularly high temperatures, vibrations and pressures. The durable connector is therefore principally well suited for connections in trucks, commercial vehicles and agricultural vehicles.
The V2-XC can be used in systems for air intake and crankcase ventilation. With its rugged design made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, the quick connector reliably maintains a temperature of up to 150 Celsius and overpressure of up to five bar. The stainless steel locking ring provides a 270 degree lock, making connections with plastic or metal spigots even more secure.
"Because our customers' requirements are steadily increasing, it is only logical for us to also continue developing our product portfolio," says Werner Deggim, CEO of NORMA Group. "We must react quickly to these requirements and trends. It took only one year from the idea of the new quick connector to its serial maturity. The new V2-XC connector complements the previous V2 model with a new, particularly robust connection product."
The V2-XC quick connector is made of recyclable plastics such as fiberglass-reinforced polyamide 6 (PA 6) or polyamide 12 (PA 12). The new product is based on the design of the V2 quick connector and has a nominal width of 27 millimeters. Due to its flexible, modular design, nominal widths of 6 to 33 will also be able to be implemented in the future, as with the current V2 connector. The V2-XC connector will be manufactured at the plant in Pilica, Poland.
