Stiff hoses have to be softened with hot water before use

At a plant where our customer produces precision machinery, they used spring hoses for product assembly and delivery. They fastened a clamp on the barb fitting nipple, but insertion was not easy when mounting the hose. They used hot water to soften it, but that increased time it took to complete the insertion, and they had no hot water when making delivery.

When we recommended our TOYOCONECTOR, they were surprised at how easy insertion was, and they also like the way it looked. They adopted the TOYOCONNECTOR, which reduced their workload and improved their product’s image.
