In the world of manufacturing non-standard parts often equate to "custom" parts. Custom parts mean a whole host of things that a lot of manufacturers can't afford; things like special tooling, manufacturing, and processes. These special extras needed to create custom parts mean an extended lead time and, ultimately, increased prices.
For a lot of companies, creating custom parts is handled in exactly this way. At Torque Transmissions, however, we have a different way of handling custom parts that makes better sense for our business and for our customers businesses.
At Torque Transmission we utilize a PULL production process. Pull-through production is characterized by smaller batches, quick responses to customer demands, and smooth product flow. This type of production is an example of lean manufacturing and is the reason why we are able to make orders to customer specifications.
We know that an 'off-the-shelf' companion pulley doesn't fit every application. That's why we offer custom pulleys to meet your individual needs.
