Huco Dynatork has used value stream mapping to increase capacity, simplify flow and cut lead times when making Multibeam couplings.

This has also opened up new opportunities for customers with special design requirements.

Huco Dynatork had already been making its single-, three- and six-beam Multibeam couplings from pilot bored stock to boost productivity and shorten lead times.

Although this did shorten lead times of the most popular sizes and models, there was still room for improvement.

Unusually large orders or those for less popular sizes and specials were still subject to lengthy lead times.

Multibeams were previously produced in a series of individual process cells.

Value stream mapping made Huco Dynatork invest in a single multi-process cell that manufactures every Multibeam from scratch rather than from pre-bored stock.

This has cut production lead times for Huco Dynatork Multibeam by 80 per cent.

Typical lead times for batches of 50 to 100 are now less than five days.

Huco Dynatork is a world-class manufacturer of flexible couplings.

Whether the need is for high torsional stiffness, generous misalignment capability, high-speed operation or a capacity for operating in push/pull mode, Huco Dynatork can help. And if your requirements fall outside our standard range, we offer a customised service and cost-efficient small-batch production. 

Our range is highly comprehensive, comprising membrane and bellows high-performance couplings; Oldham and Uni-Lat general-purpose motion control couplings; Single-Beam, Multi-Beam and Step-Beam brands; and jaw/spider and double loop light power drive couplings. We also stock stainless steel and plastic universal joints.

Although the design and manufacture of couplings remains the cornerstone of our business, this is just one of the company's five main product groups. Huco Dynatork piston air motors is one of them, the only brand that can be used for precision motion control. 

Our quality hallmark is also impressed onto a huge range of power transmission and motion control components that have distinct design and performance benefits over other products in the market. In addition to an extensive choice of stock gears, racks, ground shafts and spline shafts, the product programme also includes the comprehensive BSA range of leadscrews and ballscrews.
