“With this new product line, we are able to leverage the factory expertise and provide a solution for those customers still using inch gearing,” says KHK USA general manager Brian Dengel. “We are responding to the markets demand that we offer stock inch gears in 4DP, 6DP, 8DP, and 10DP. Our customers have looked to us for a solution to other vendors who either offer a ridiculous lead time or an astronomic price. KHK USA can now fill that need with a KHK quality standard product, that meets the customers need for quality, cost, and delivery.”
