Stainless steel ferrules are a simple but essential part in the assembly of flexible plumbing tubes and the assembly of pressfitting systems. The decision to produce the stainless steel ferrules directly from the tube was a difficult but decisive choice, that enabled us to develop a higher quality product from all points of view with excellent production efficiency.
100%-controlled raw material using non-destructive control systems where every single piece produced is totally traceable thanks to a laser micro-label within each component.
Thickness uniformity and absence of excessive stress and tension in the metal, which grants excellent processing quality if compared to the types of crimping currently used, even when the annealing solution is missing.
Better resistance to inter-granular corrosion thanks to the absence of expansion of the grains, which is typically evident when using other systems of production.
Inexpensiveness and efficiency throughout the entire process and maximum respect for the environment. These are very important aspects, due to continuous improvement based on ongoing technological research and the optimization of productive processes.
The stainless steel used to produce the ferrules has no match in terms of mechanical characteristics and resistance to corrosion and it cannot be compared in the slightest to other materials such as brass, aluminum or zinc-coated steel.
Stainless steel is a versatile material, which does not need chromium plating, nickel-plating or zinc coating. These processes, when carelessly carried out, do not grant resistance in crimping and are well known for not being environmentally-friendly.
Our ferrules possess all the necessary characteristics to be considered the reference point within the market, as confirmed by the 350.000.000 pieces produced annually.
Our ferrules are produced according to the following standards:
