HENN HC.PORT is a  VDA standard spigot with near to no assembly effort as the spigot will either only be pressed and glued into or brazed to the bore. The spigot is deep-drawn from metal sheet and needs no machining or after treatment which makes it a very reasonable solution for a wide range of applications, e.g. thermal management of power electronics or fuel cells where the spigot only needs to be pressed into the aluminium die cast housing.
