CADENAS PARTsolutions and Rotomation have been featured in the February 2014 issue of Design2Part magazine.
The article, on both the print and online publications, highlights the new configurator which will provide free 3D parts content to online visitors worldwide.
Rotomation manufactures extremely configurable, pneumatic rotary actuators for use in automation systems. All of their products are assembled to order, and special configurations are common. With the new online configurator, Rotomation is looking to reach a broader audience of engineers by offering high quality 3D parts content in more formats.
“Our products are highly configurable,” says Steve Mandarano, General Manager at Rotomation. “Plus, we work with designers in a variety of industries, who use many different CAD environments. Since we work with such a large cross-section of the engineering community, we need to be able to provide configurable, native content for all, not just a few customers.”
Using CADENAS eCATALOGsolutions technology, Rotomation will now provide 3D parts content in more than 150 native and neutral formats, including: Dassault Systèmes CATIA®, Siemens NX®, PTC Creo®, SolidWorks®, Autodesk Inventor®, Siemens Solid Edge®, and more.
By offering these native files to their customers, Rotomation will enable designers to increase their design accuracy while saving engineering time. Engineers will no longer need to re-draw Rotomation parts within their design, as they will be able to download and place the component instantly. This process enables designers to specify parts to the BOM (bill of materials) in the design stage, making the job of sourcing components parts much easier for the purchasing department.
