Hurst Manufacturing, St. Louis, has launched a new Web site that allows visitors to design custom motors in a virtual environment, order samples for 48-hr delivery, and ask questions of the company’s online experts.

Visitors to the site can register for a free, personalized account in the section of the site. Easing the design process, the site includes a six-step brushless DC motor configurator that leads a customer through a selection process from pre-engineered modules to create a customer-specific motor and control.

A second design tool uses key performance requirements to search a database of the company’s existing products. Once a motor is configured using a design tool, the customer instantly has access to a part number, dimensional diagrams, and technical specifications.
