MATERIALS: H.A. Guden Co. Inc. has announced the release of a new catalog for 2010. At 28 pages, Guden’s new catalog is smaller, easier to use, and helps save more trees. And while the catalog has changed, their enormous assortment of industrial hinges, gas springs, latches, and handles has not. The purpose of the consolidated catalog is to showcase Guden’s product line rather than hard-to-read part numbers and tables. Those details as well as specifications, drawings, and 3-D CAD models are all available on Guden’s website, providing customers with the most current product information.
A Guden hinge and hardware knowledge base, including specifications, drawings, design forms, 3-D CAD models, quotes, and ordering is available on line.
