We’ve been a Hydraulink distributor at Gregory Engineering in Picton for three decades. We’re proud of our long association with this leading manufacturer and supplier of hose and fittings. One of the brilliantly innovative services we offer under their banner is the Hydraulink Hydratag System. So, we thought we’d use this month’s blog article as an opportunity to tell you more about this service. Read on for all the details.
Hydraulink Hydratag System
The Hydraulink Hydratag System records the components that make up each particular hose. Details include the type of hose, its length, the fittings attached, etc. Once registered, these details can be accessed across the Hydraulink network, allowing faster response when a machine blows a hose.
A manufacturing technician records the hose and fitting details to a tag. They attach this tag to your hose so the machine operator can scan or call in the number on the tag when it blows. The Hydratag system notifies your nearest technician to begin making a new one.
At Gregory Engineering, we can set you up with Hydraulink Hydratags on any of the hoses you order from us. The minimal charge has the potential to pay back in dividends, reducing any downtime your team and machinery might have if a hose blows. You’ll also need to download the Hydratag App.
