Linear actuator supplier streamlines specification process for engineers and designers with new 3D part catalog of configurable CAD models
Accu Tech Michigan, a full service linear guide and actuator supplier, as well as a stocking distributor of PMI linear products, has launched an all-new 3D product catalog built by CADENAS PARTsolutions. The new catalog enables Accu Tech Michigan customers to instantly configure the exact linear rails and guides they need, and download in more than 150 native and neutral CAD and graphic formats. This capability accelerates design cycles for Accu Tech Michigan users. With standard and custom configurations available, it also gives them a wider selection of products to choose from.
“We originally provided static 3D CAD models on our site in a few neutral formats,” says Jonathan Maust, Owner of Accutech Michigan. “Most of our products are custom, so engineers would then have to download and manipulate the models to fit their design. It was very easy for the engineers to modify the product model incorrectly, which would lead to errors in their design. Now the 3D part catalog does all of the work. The user can configure the product as they need and it provides a native model in 150 formats. The best part is, the data from the 3D product catalog is 100% accurate every time.”
Accu Tech Michigan sells linear locating devices which provide and high precision long-life movement of machine components. Their customers are design engineers at specialty machine manufacturers, typically for high-volume repeatable-motion machinery. These engineers have very specific application requirements, which is why they come to Accu Tech Michigan. Accu Techwill provide standard size products, but typically their customers order custom products to fit their application.
Accu Tech Michigan 3D Product Catalog Benefits:
- Reduce Design Time with “Drop-in” Detailed Models
- Linear Rails, Modeled, Cut and Sold To Any Length (No Standards)
- Stock Profile Rail Sizes 15, 20, 25, 30, 35
- Stock Lead-Time: 1- 2 days
The tool will not only benefit end-users, but has also proved beneficial for internal customer support and engineering staff, relieving them from the need to fulfill custom design requests.
“The engineering support staff are going to be big fans of the new 3D product catalog,” adds Tim Thomas, CEO of CADENAS PARTsolutions. “By placing the power to design and download products into their user’s hands, Accutech is freeing up a lot of time for their engineering team. The end-user doesn’t have to call anyone, they get the exact product in the exact format they need and the internal engineering support team has more time to focus on their primary responsibilities.”
The 3D part catalog and CAD configurator is free to use, and is now available on Accu Tech Michigan’s website, www.accutechmi.com
