The Veck part number system

The Veck part number system employs a unique product identification code which allows the customer to determine which part number matches your requirements based on dimensions and features specific to the item. At first one of our part number references may appear to be a string of random letters and numbers but is in fact a logical system which is designed to help us and you identify any given part. On this page we would like to help you understand how this part number system works, to make choosing parts, understanding quotations and purchasing our products easier.
