Maintal, Germany, 19-Dec-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — NORMA Group, a global market leader in engineered joining technology, is expanding its test laboratories in the regions Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific. In modern test facilities, qualified experts will validate new products and develop plastic materials for fluid systems. Stress and long-term tests simulate realistic operating conditions with regard to temperatures, pressures and vibrations.
“By investing in our laboratories, we cover an even wider range of complex test requirements for our customers,” says Werner Deggim, CEO of NORMA Group. “In this way, we ensure the same high standards in quality assurance everywhere. The reliability of the connection products is crucial, since they are considered to be function-critical: if only one element leaks, the function of the entire vehicle can be affected.”
In the new test facilities, NORMA Group tests the performance of fluid systems, by subjecting them to various combinations of different temperatures from minus 40 to plus 300 degrees Celsius, pressures of up to 20 bar and vibrations of different frequencies. Tests also include chemical resistance to different media, such as glycol-water mixtures, oil, diesel, gasoline and urea.
NORMA Group’s fluid systems are used in motor vehicles for cooling, tank ventilation or transporting oil and fuel. They are weight-reduced, ready-to-install and easily mounted. NORMA Group has been expanding its test labs worldwide since 2015. For all products, whether plastic or metal, the company is committed to comprehensive in-house performance tests.
