TR Fastenings launch new HUMMEL cable glands range

TR Fastenings has announced the launch of a new premium range of HUMMEL cable glands, adding to its growing plastic & rubber hardware portfolio. This latest move confirms TR’s commitment to increase its product offering to existing and new customers.

Dr. Bertram Melzig-Thiel, Vice President Product Line Cable Glands at HUMMEL, said: “We are pleased to be able to expand our cooperation and we are sure that we will enrich TR Fastenings’ high-quality product range with our premium cable glands.”

Andrew Fletcher, Director of Plastics and Rubber (Commercial and Technical) at TR Fastenings, said: “TR is proud to offer this latest innovative range to customers, and working with a world-class manufacturer in the connector field such as Hummel, strengthens our commitment to growing this range.

“This isn’t a one solution fits all scenario as we’ve seen the cable glands market change considerably over the years, with continuous product developments to meet industry demands. We do more than just deliver products, we provide solutions and we’re well poised to react quickly to this evolving market whilst remaining competitive.”

With the international Ingress Protection (IP) rating system in place, the IP rates the glands depending on their design and efficiency for different applications. The HSK-K plastic range and HSK-M metal range meet the toughest requirements of industrial indoor and outdoor environments and provide the highest levels of IP ratings – IP68 and IP69K, compared to other competitors’ product. This is mainly due to advanced seal design. The higher rated IP69K enables products to be used in conditions where equipment must be carefully sanitised such as in medical and food processing applications.
