Core connector attaches cores together. (New Product).

Cores often are attached to produce core packages or complex cores made in several pieces. Common processes for this connection include shooting a connecting core or gluing two cores together.

As an alternative to these methods, Core-Lock, a new core connection technique, has been developed by Hottinger Systems GmbH, Germany (represented in the U.S. by Hottinger North America North America, third largest continent (1990 est. pop. 365,000,000), c.9,400,000 sq mi (24,346,000 sq km), the northern of the two continents of the Western Hemisphere. , Inc., Taylor, Michigan Taylor is a city in Wayne County in the U.S. state of Michigan.
