Part Number overview

The Veck part number system – if it seems too big Head to our contact page for further assistance

Veck uses a unique product identification system which allows you, the customer, to determine which part number matches your requirements. What might appear to be a string of random letters and numbers is in fact a logical system combining the most important elements and dimensions of the fastener to produce a very specific part number. While initially it may look somewhat daunting to look at, on this page we would like to help you understand how the system works to make understanding quotations and purchasing our products easier.
