What is a DIN (norm)

DIN is a standard that was introduced by Germany at the beginning of the last century and is still used today. It is a prescription that establishes the properties and parameters of different materials, products and methods of production. These are not norms that are set by law, but in most cases they are contractually required, so their non-compliance means financial losses for companies. For example, standards can be used to confuse individual components in the manufacturing process, making the whole process more efficient. Many DIN standards have also been adopted by the Czech Republic.
