Configuring a hydraulic pump or motor to your exact machine requirements can be complex, time-consuming, and involve multiple points of contact with customer service. Our focused response to this challenge has been to create for our customers and business partners a more efficient on-line experience when configuring the product. Our engineers and product managers at Hydraulic Pump and Power Systems (HPS) created a new online eConfiguation tool now available for its Gold Cup Pump and Motor Series.
The new configurator online tool will provide a more enhanced user experience and greater efficiency than the prior version. The new tool enables users to more easily configure a hydraulic pump or motor specific to their exact requirements. In addition, users will also benefit from the tool's capability to only configure products that are consistent with the Parker product offering, providing them with the expertise of Parker at their fingertips.
