New Website for the Bearing Industry with Over 8,300 Complimentary CAD Models

Ground breaking website is launched providing an unprecedented combination of product info, industry resources, and downloads for mechanical engineers and designers utilizing bearings in their applications

October 12, 2010:  Montville, NJ – “Value” is redefined with the relaunch of AST Bearings website located at:  http://www.ASTBearings.com.  While most people may expect a premier bearing supplier’s site to include tons of product information, they may not expect how easy it is to get exactly the information they’re looking for.  The new AST Bearings site catalogs over 8,300 bearing and related products; however, there is much, much more to this new site.

Professional Services Highlighted

With the re-launching of the website, AST has positioned itself as the “complete bearing specialist” with extensive “value-added” services.  Beyond exceptional product quality, selection, and availability, the value-added services at AST are what really set them apart from most other bearing suppliers.  As detailed on the new website, some of the expert professional services that AST provides customers include:

Industry Resource Center Provides Value

AST wants to help make products perform better, companies more competitive, and people’s jobs a whole lot easier.  In doing so, AST created on their website a valuable “Resource Center” so everyone can get answers and solutions they need quickly and dependably.  While the site is scheduled to increase dramatically in content, currently it includes topics such as:

AST Bearing's Online Catalog System

To assist AST’s customers in finding the right information quickly, easily, and consistently, they have uploaded most of their product line offerings in an interactive product catalog system (currently it has over 8,300 products cataloged).  Their online catalog system goes way beyond the value provided by most others in both the breadth and depth of its information as it acts as a:

  • Bearing Selection Guide
  • Comprehensive Product Catalog with parametric search
  • Product Data Sheet Warehouse
  • Downloadable Library of 2D and 3D CAD model files
  • Product Technical Guide
  • RFQ Generator

Of note is the fact that the online catalog system is completely free of charge to all, including unlimited downloads of 3D CAD models of its more than 8,300 products.  The value to engineers and designers is significant.  The new AST interactive online catalog identifies and specifies appropriate products including where to purchase them, it can initiate RFQs, it is available anytime 24/7/365, CAD models can be directly incorporated into design utilizing virtually any CAD program, and it can ultimately help accelerate the time-to-market for new products.

With the re-launch of their new website with its interactive online catalog, AST Bearings has underscored their trademarked slogan of “Value Beyond the Part”™.  They have distanced themselves from typical bearing suppliers in both the breadth of their product offerings and the depth of their value-added services.  Check out their new website today at: www.ASTBearings.com
