Huco has launched an e-commerce service at www.hucodirect.com, that allows end users to order precision couplings direct from its manufacturing headquarters. The online platform has been created to allow small-volume orders to be delivered globally, with next day shipping on standard orders. The service is suitable for design engineers or MRO operatives who frequently need parts delivered to extremely tight deadlines.
Huco, a premier brand of Altra Industrial Motion Corp., offers a variety of precision couplings for industrial and commercial applications. The range includes Oldham, Beam, Disc and Bellows couplings, each offering varying degrees of torsional stiffness, vibration dampening and backlash. Its range is further supplemented by innovative piston air motors that offer energy efficiency and precise speed control.
The Huco Direct service allows engineers to order genuine parts direct from the manufacturer — offering quality advantages as well as reliable delivery times. Suppliers who deliver from stock often run out of popular items, which can mean customers are left waiting weeks for replenishment. Huco can ensure next day shipping for all standard orders because of its flexible manufacturing system.
Online customers can select the bore size and specify if a keyway is required before making orders to guarantee that the perfect coupling is chosen. Technical specifications for each product are included as well as a free CAD download service available to all registered users. A selection of air motors, service kits and gearboxes are also available to order online.
The global service includes free shipping to any location in the UK, Europe and the USA. Payments can be made via credit card in a choice of British Pounds, Euros or US Dollars. Once registered, site visitors will be able to review recent orders to make re-ordering a simple process.
