Over 400 product additions, shorter lead times and an updated app covering North America highlight Fall 2015 enhancements to Rexroth’s popular fast delivery program.
(Charlotte, NC) Rexroth’s latest GoTo™ Focused Delivery Program update includes additions across all product lines and shorter GoTo lead times—98 percent of the products in the program ship in 10 days or fewer.
With hundreds of products added with this update, customers will benefit from new options across the spectrum of Rexroth’s drive and control technologies.
Key additions to the hydraulics program include hundreds of new part numbers, with more options in Compact Hydraulics and Axial Piston products, as well as the addition of the new configurable hydraulic power unit, GoPak™.
The conveyor offering will also grow with a large collection of spare parts for the Rexroth TSplus conveyor series; lead times for 90 mm series VarioFlow plus conveyor components will shrink to just four days. For motion control customers, additional IndraDrive Mi motor-integrated drive sets have been added to the GoTo program, along with the new VR series of HMIs. Rexroth is also adding products to their selection of linear motion components, including the MKR linear module.
Rexroth’s GoTo Products app for iPad, iPhone and Android has been updated with all of the latest products. Users in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. are now able to view all of the latest products, retrieve local pricing, find their local salesperson or distributor, add products to a cart and email it for a quote.
