Sporty roadsters and family station wagons alike need robust hose couplings to get into gear. These couplings hold the pipes firmly together when gas, pressurized air, and cooling water speed through the engine. They must be absolutely spillproof, which is why “such a tube connector poses a considerable challenge to our materials suppliers,” says Martin Ohneberg, Managing Director of HENN GmbH & Co KG.
The small connection technology provider based in the Austrian state of Voralberg is a regular customer of ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe. “We may be a small customer for ThyssenKrupp, but we are a highly innovative one,” says Ohneberg with pride. “We have jointly developed several products for the global market.”
