STAUFF Form EVO: Titelstory in the July 2022 Issue of the German Trade Magazine 'fluid'
24 fluid · technik 2022 Hydraulics Stauff Form Evo in practice Evolution in hydraulic tube connection technology The forming system from the Stauff Connect tube connection range has been success- fully used on the international market since 2015. Stauff Form was developed for chal- lenging high-pressure applications in hydraulics and, since it was introduced, has pro- ved itself in shipbuilding, offshore systems, crane systems and lifting equipment. The second generation is now available as Stauff Form Evo. T he metallic adapter ring used up to now with a permanently bonded elastomeric seal has been replaced with a ‚simple‘ Viton sealing ring. This makes the system significantly cheaper. The Slovenian hydraulic service provider Pisnik has switched to Stauff Form Evo and its customers are also benefiting from the new pricing. Pisnik was one of the first users of the Stauff Form connection system, which was launched in 2015 – and started with a very large-scale project. According to Reliable tube con- nections are manda- tory in hydraulics. Images: Stauff “The automotive industry in Slovenia prefers forming con- nections.” Jernej Pisnik, Pisnik, d.o.o.
