Hose Selection Process "Stamped" Highlighted in Motion Industries "HOW2" Video

Press release date: March 12, 2014

Birmingham, Ala. – Motion Industries, a leading distributor of industrial maintenance, repair, and operation (MRO) replacement parts, has released a new video on their “MiHow2” series of product/application solutions.  The instructive video series’ goal is to share practical industrial applications that viewers can adapt in their own facilities. 

The video, “How to Select the Correct Hose Using the STAMPED Process” was created with the assistance of Gates, a leading manufacturer of power transmission belts and fluid power products, and a Motion Industries key supplier.  The video can now be viewed online at

“The STAMPED process is not new, but it’s a great rule of thumb for anyone to remember when choosing the appropriate hose,” said Randy Breaux, Motion Industries’ Senior VP of Marketing, Product Management, Strategic Planning.   “And this video is full of tips for hose longevity and usage safety, all shown in a relatively short amount of viewing time.”

Each MiHow2 video was filmed in a workshop setting, and features the Motion Industries host with a guest from one of the market-leading industrial manufacturers demonstrating a product or application.  The series is also available for viewing via Facebook and YouTube.  Additional MiHow2 videos are scheduled to be posted in coming weeks.
