Set-up of an assembled clamp that is attached to the substructure using female threaded weld studs

Increased productivity and flexibility for the installation of pipe, tube, hose and cable clamps

In many areas, stud welding is considered to be the most economic fastening method for components and is sometimes even the only technically feasible solution. Because the stud is joined with the substructure over the entire surface of the stud without any hollow areas, a high strength of the joint can be achieved.

Stauff is now using this proven principle for the installation of pipe, tube, hose and cable clamps in the Standard Series (according to DIN 3015, part 1) with M6 mounting thread, where female threaded weld studs replace the regular weld plates; distance plates made from plastic provide the necessary spacing between the clamp bodies and the substructure. If required, the system can also be adopted for alternative fastening methods, e.g. for clamping belts, cable ties or corrugated cable protection hoses.

In addition to the individual components – weld studs, distance plates, clamp bodies and metal hardware required – the company also provides the correspondingly designed assembly tools such as the weld inverter and the weld gun with tripod, weld stud retainer and distance adaptor. The lightweight and compact weld inverter works without high-voltage current.

Thanks to increased productivity and flexibility for the installation of clamps, the system offers considerable savings potentials for users with significant processing volumes, especially when working in horizontal or overhead position. The amount of rework on welding locations can be significantly decreased, and material distortion is reduced to a minimum through low thermal stress.

The joint of the weld stud with the substructure impresses in particular with a high degree of strength and safety, which is at least at the same level as for regular weld plates.

For more than 50 years now, the STAUFF Group with headquarters in Werdohl (Germany) has been successful in the development, manufacturing and distribution of pipework equipment and hydraulic components for mechanical and plant engineering as well as for service and industrial maintenance. The overall product range currently includes about 33,000 standard products as well as numerous special and system solutions according to customer requirements or based on own developments.

Wholly-owned manufacturing, sales and service facilities with more than 1,150 employees in 18 countries and a tight network of authorised distributors and representatives in all major industrial regions of the world ensure high presence and service paired with a maximum of availability.

In April 2015, VOSWINKEL was acquired and became a member of the STAUFF Group. With two sites located in Meinerzhagen (Germany) and 230 employees, VOSWINKEL is considered to be one of the world's five largest producers of quick release couplings for hydraulic systems. The long-established company also develops and produces a comprehensive range of hydraulic hose fittings – particularly for high-pressure applications – as well as custom-designed piping, primarily for construction and agricultural machinery as well as for commercial vehicles.

In 2015, the companies of the STAUFF Group have generated external sales revenue totalling EUR 230 Mio.

Stauff expands weld fittings range
New model series for demanding applications, e.g. in power plants With the series FI-SNR and FI-ASV, Stauff expands the product range of Stauff Connect weld fittings. This connection technology is being replaced increasingly by easy-to-install forming systems, e.g. Stauff Form, in various applications. But it will still retain its place in the market in the future, especially in the demanding heavy industry and in power plant engineering. As a full-range provider in
Stauff expands manufacturing capacities at Werdohl
Investment in high-capacity rotary transfer machines At its main base in Werdohl, Stauff has placed into service a rotary transfer machine for tube connectors with which some 1.5 million angle, T-connector and cross-pieces can be made from forging blanks. In this way, the all-in supplier of hydraulic lines has reacted to the considerable demand for its own “Stauff Connect” tube connector range which came onto the market in 2015. A second rotary
Customised service cases
Individually designed and equipped hydraulic test cases for maintenance and service The hydraulic test cases from Stauff have been a popular item with maintenance and service personnel for many years. In addition to analogue and digital pressure gauges, they can also be equipped with test couplings and hoses, connection adapters and other accessories. Numerous standard versions can be ordered directly from stock. Due to the growing demand of the market for customised

Indestructible: Stauff and Voswinkel components in agriculture
Superior resistance to aggressive substances The use of components in agricultural machinery places high demands on the corrosion resistance of hydraulic line components, such as tube and hose connections and fasteners. They are not just exposed to usual weather and climate-related hazards, but frequently come into contact with particularly aggressive substances: with fertilizers containing phosphate or nitrogen, pesticides, cleaning concentrates, oils and other media. Stauff, one of the leading manufacturers of
