Timken Creates Mobile App for Automotive and Heavy Truck Aftermarket

The Timken Co. has gone mobile with its online aftermarket catalog site, with new applications designed for the iPhone, Android and Blackberry smartphones.

The Timken Co. has gone mobile with its online aftermarket catalog site, with new applications designed for the iPhone, Android and Blackberry smartphones. Each app contains all of the functionalities of the original site at www.TimkenInfo.com.
 
The development of these mobile applications enhances the ability of professional technicians and do-it-yourselfers to do the job right the first time, Timken says. Through these applications, users can search for Timken products by year/make/model, part number or even an industry part number. In addition, the app offers access to torque specifications for Timken products, as added earlier this year to TimkenInfo.com. Available torque specs cover axle nuts, flange bolts and wheel studs.
 
"Our customers tell us training and easy access to information are two of the most important things we can provide beyond quality products themselves," said Barry Harris, Timken’s manager of global strategy, marketing and cataloging. "We want Timken to be the trusted source for professional technicians to find technical information about today’s toughest bearing and seal questions."
