Why More OEMs Are Using DIN Fittings

With their growing popularity globally, many U.S. OEMs are adopting DIN hose fittings. 

This, combined with the rise in equipment being imported into the Americas from European manufacturers, is resulting in DIN metric fittings becoming more common in the U.S.

For decades JIC fittings have been the industry standard in the U.S.  However, they are more susceptible to cracked flares from over torqueing. The mated sealing surfaces in DIN metric fittings and O-ring face seal hydraulic fittings reduce the risk of over torqueing and provide greater reliability because of the elastomeric seal in the mating surface.

Metric O.D. sizes range from 4mm to 42mm, and the most common industrial applications use carbon steel or stainless steel material.
