Manufacturers benefit from flexibility of Huco Direct
SME manufacturers are often faced with the challenge of balancing stock and cash flow. Unlike volume OEMs, smaller businesses can’t afford to have millions of pounds worth of stock holdings. Such businesses rely on the flexibility and dependability of their suppliers to satisfy demand on short lead times without any mistakes. Huco Direct provides direct access to premium precision couplings and piston air motors, with next day shipping available for most orders.
Huco manufacturers an extensive range of zero backlash, precision coupling solutions with designs including Oldham, beam, disc, bellows, double loop, rigid and flexible jaw couplings. Thanks to the adoption of lean manufacturing techniques, it is able to accurately forecast demand and ensure that the 85,000+ standard parts found in its catalogue are available to order in small batches – usually from stock.
Huco Direct is the new e-commerce platform that has been launched to connect manufacturers directly to the Huco factory. This service is particularly suited to manufacturers who rely on ‘Just-In-Time’ stock management as an alternative to maintaining large stock holdings. For customers ordering standard parts from the UK, Europe or the USA, most orders will be shipped inside 24 hours.
A simple navigation system makes it easy for customers to browse the catalogue by coupling style and refine their search by material, torque and size. Once the correct coupling has been found it’s even possible to specify bore diameter and add keyways prior to ordering. 3D CAD models are available to registered users and orders can be confirmed and paid for by credit card or PayPal using British Pounds, Euros or US Dollars.
