No matter where in the chain, WEO will simply make your life easier
WEO offers the possibility of more compact designs, shorter maintenance times and minimizes the risk of work related injuries. It all adds up to extensive cost savings and benefits for everyone - the designer, manufacturer and end-user.
At the drawing board: Through its minimal space requirements designers have the possibility to design new compact systems. How? Since our fittings are simply plugged in, you don’t have to worry about hand-tool clearance. Traditional screw to connect fittings require extra space when tightened, but WEO will make it easier for you to build a compact and reliable hydraulic system. With WEO at the drawing board stage, you also cut time on the production line.
On the production line: CEJN WEO Plug-In hose fittings reduce downtime and installation time for equipment manufacturers. The click-to-connect and self-aligning features of the fittings make them easy to install in hydraulic systems, dramatically reducing costs through their quick installation time. Once it has been plugged in, the fitting locks into place, eliminating the need for tightening during follow-up security checks. The tight connection also gives you leak-free connections.
Owner of WEO-equipped machine: A machine equipped WEO will save you both time and money. Due to the fact that WEO fittings are self-aligning, twisted hose is no longer a problem giving your hose an extend service life. If necessary, disconnectioncan can be achieved using nothing more than a simple screw driver, it’s as easy as that! When plugged back in, the tight connection ensures leakage is virtually eliminated leaving you with a clog-free system. You can always rest assured the fittings are properly plugged in and don’t have to worry about re-tightening.
Tests: WEO Plug-In hose fittings have been tested and approved by the Swedish Institute of Materials Testing and Research to SS-ISO 8032 – Half Omega Test, and have been burst tested to a minimum pressure of four times the working pressure. The fittings have also been tested and approved by TÜV, Germany.
