Hurst Manufacturing recently announced its customers can now configure custom brushless DC motors online and receive prototypes in 48 hr. Visitors to the company’s Web site (www.hurstmfg.com) can choose from more than 6,000 NT Dynamo models and receive a mock-up in two days.
The online motor configurer walks customers through a six-step selection process that includes “yes” and “no” questions and pulldown menus of answer options to create a customer-specific motor and control. Once they have configured their motor, customers have access to a part number, dimensional diagrams, and technical specifications. To request a quote or order the prototype online, customers must first register for a free MyHurst.com account. The account allows them to get price quotes and place and track orders.
Prototypes start at $200 and are production-ready.
