Series 320 Safety Couplings Open Door to New Business

CEJN has been awarded new business from a global automotive supplier in Graz, Austria. Magna International Inc., a designer and developer of automotive systems and assembler of complete vehicles for OEMs, has standardized on CEJN Series 320 vented safety couplings at two new facilities. The couplings are being used for pneumatic tool applications at Magna’s BMW X3 and Saab convertible car model assembly plants in Graz.

Magna International Inc., a designer and developer of automotive systems and assembler of complete vehicles for OEMs, has standardized on CEJN Series 320 vented safety couplings at two new facilities.

The couplings are being used for pneumatic tool applications at Magna’s BMW X3 and Saab convertible car model assembly plants in Graz.

Each facility has been equipped with Series 320 couplings and hose kits, supplied through GeZet, a CEJN product dealer in Austria, and Atlas Copco, a tool supplier that sells CEJN products worldwide.

Magna’s decision to standardize on Series 320 couplings was influenced by the product’s safety features. Since the Austrian trade association is now recommending only safety-style couplings for in-plant use, the planning group for the European car industry has decided to standardize on safety couplings for all new facilities.

CEJN Series 320 recoil-free couplings are disconnected in two stages, in order to vent the coupling and minimize the risk of sudden component separation, which has the potential to cause operator injury. The product’s low-noise level during disconnection, combined with a low-connection force, ensures a safer working environment.
