About Harting

Harting logo

Harting is a company founded by Wilhelm and Marie Harting in 1945. It all started as a small company in a garage measuring just 100 square meters, in a repair shop located in Minden, Germany. There they began to manufacture some electronic appliances for everyday use, such as energy saving light bulbs, electric cooktops, equipment for electrified fences, waffle irons, electric lighters, clothes irons, etc.

Wilhelm Harting understood that German industry needed technical products, and so he was committed from the beginning to create these products and meet their goals with quality and innovation. Their products were highly appreciated for their rsturdiness, ease of use and versatility. In fact, Harting's philosophy was reflected in a phrase by Wilhelm: 'I do not want any product returned«.

After Wilhelm's death in 1962Marie Harting assumed control of the company for a time, until her two sons Dietmar and Jürgen Harting took over with her. In 1987, Margrit Harting would also join her husband Dietmar's family business, now being one of the business partners. Today, Philip FW Harting and Maresa WM Harting-Hertz are the third generation at the helm of this prestigious company ...

After creating all kinds of products, they created Han connector, a proprietary Harting brand that was a huge success in the marketplace and would establish itself as a global standard. This component became the main market axis for the entire technology group.

Little by little it has grown in number of members and in production plants, success after success. Currently they already have 14 production plants and 43 sales centers around the world. Now they have established themselves as one of the world's leading providers for industrial connection solutions for data, signal and power supply.

In addition to connectors, the company also manufactures other components, such as electronic register boxes for commercial use, electromagnetic actuators for automotive and industrial production, charging devices, vehicle cables, as well as other types of hardware and software for different applications, among which robotics is also found.

Harting Han connector

One of its star products, as I have commented, is Han connector by Harting. There are a great variety of them and they are characterized by their simplicity and fast handling, the robustness they provide, the flexibility of use, the long-lasting life cycle, and the possibility of assembly without using any type of tools.

The latter is very important, since many of the connectors that exist in the company, whether for industrial use or for any other use, always imply using some tools for their installation.

In addition to all that, the Harting Han connector has also been protected (IP) so that it can withstand certain external conditions of humidity, dust, foreign bodies, mechanical shocks, spilled fluids, etc. Of course, the protection is certified under standards IEC 60 529 and DIN EN 60 529.
