Federal-Mogul’s www.FMe-cat.com electronic catalog of replacement components and related technical information has become a popular reference tool for aftermarket professionals and consumers, with more than 17 million parts lookups completed in 2011 and a current average of more than 11,000 unique visitors each day.
The interactive eCatalog includes application and technical reference information covering millions of parts for automotive, commercial vehicle, agricultural, industrial, marine, small-engine and other uses. Visitors can look up and store multiple part numbers for the same job without re-entering search criteria. The catalog’s comprehensive interchange and numerical lookup tools help users identify the correct part even when they don’t have complete application information. The site also features Google Translation software to serve the needs of customers who speak Spanish, French or German.
In addition to product application information, the FMe-cat.com catalog features thousands of detailed product images and illustrations with zoom capability as well as convenient links to related technical training videos and other support materials developed at the Federal-Mogul Technical Education Center in St. Louis. An integrated “Technical Resources” link provides hundreds of tech tips, bulletins and videos as well as lookup tools covering torque, engine and part number specifications. The site also includes interactive calculators for determining capacities and dimensions, engine displacement, horsepower and torque, and compression ratio.
Users who still prefer paper catalog formats can use the FMe-cat.com site to “flip” through electronic versions of each of Federal-Mogul’s most recent print volumes. These digital catalogs are even mounted on a virtual catalog rack that allows the user to view up to two pages at a time as they flip back and forth.
