HepcoMotion promotes stock availability and delivery potential for HLG Linear Guides amidst a period of lengthening vendor lead times

Back

UK manufacturing is making a positive start to the final quarter despite rising price pressure, the Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) showed. While the market is certainly busy at the moment, many manufacturers are struggling to keep up with the demand and there are well-documented worldwide delivery issues. Linked to low stock holdings, insufficient capacity at suppliers and shortages in raw material, the PMI shows that October was yet another month of lengthening vendor lead times.  The rise of factory automation is certainly contributing to the increased demand for linear motion components.

Responding to market demand, linear motion expert HepcoMotion has increased stock levels of the HLG recirculating ball guides.  Offering smooth low friction movement, high rigidity and an excellent load capacity, this extensive range is highly versatile and suitable for most automation requirements.  Benefiting from ex-stock availability for fast turnaround on orders, HLG is available in a range of sizes from 15mm to 55mm.  The mini range of linear ball guides (5-20mm), aptly named the Miniature Linear Guide (MLG), also benefits from ex-stock availability.

The increase in stock is proving particularly beneficial for accommodating large orders as the stock is available and thus the delivery time-scales are considerably less than the market average.

As part of a long-term plan to provide shortened lead times, HepcoMotion has significantly increased its stock levels of HLG to achieve a fast turnaround. This is proving particularly beneficial for accommodating large orders as the stock is available and thus the delivery time-scales are considerably less than the market average.
