Parflex Introduces Global 56 Series Fittings at IFPE 2014

Press release date: January 17, 2014

Ravenna, OH – Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, is introducing new global connect, 56 Series Fittings for thermoplastic hose at the IFPE 2014 tradeshow. One global fitting series for thermoplastic hose means complexity reduction for customers, fewer parts to stock and simplified crimping. In addition, these new fittings are smaller, allowing for tighter routings and creating space and weight savings of up to 20%.

The new 56 Series Fittings will actually consolidate 3 series into one and will be available from the Parker Hannifin’s Parflex Division in the USA and the European Polyflex Division in late April. The new design will be on display at the Parker Hannifin booth at IFPE 2014, booth S-80440 on March 4th – 8th, 2014, in Las Vegas, NV.

The company employs approximately 58,000 people in 49 countries around the world.
