BEI Kimco Magnetics, a brand of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST), Inc., has announced the Voice Coil Actuator (VCA) Stock Program. Designed to reduce lead time, the new stock program offers customers express VCA delivery.
“The new program identifies the most frequently used products and defines the safety stock quantity for each model,” said Gareth Yiu, Product Marketing specialist. “The ultimate goal is to provide customers with the confidence that the product they need is in stock and can be processed within hours of order entry.”
Engineers can now have the product in hand for prototyping, beta testing, and pilot production without waiting the standard 12-week production time. Delivery can be shortened by up to 80 percent. This improves BEI Kimco’s response time and allows customers to better manage their design process, especially during the critical stage in their design cycle.
Included in the stocking program are more than 30 voice coil actuator models covering the company’s Rotary and Linear products, cylindrical un-housed, cylindrical semi-housed, and cylindrical housed actuators.
