Cincinnati, OH – February 19, 2014 – Burger & Brown Engineering customers have an all-new tool at their fingertips when they select their next product through manifoldbuilder.com. Users now have the ability to “step inside the inventory,” giving them the power to configure and create 3D CAD models of Smartflow® manifolds to their exact specifications. The digital parts catalog was created by CADENAS PARTsolutions, who specializes in driving revenue for industrial manufacturers with digital catalogs and 3D CAD models.
Burger & Brown Engineering offers specialized solutions through design, precision machining and custom injection molding. They are best known for their Smartflow® products, a proprietary line of accessories used within the injection molding industry. Manifoldbuilder.com, an extension of Burger & Brown’s manufacturing business, enables users to digitally build the Smartflow® product or assembly they need before they buy.
“We are really excited. The all new manifoldbuilder.com certainly opens the doors for our users,” says Mark Brown, CEO of Burger & Brown. “The site enables customers to stand inside our inventory, so they can build a custom manifold assembly to spec, made completely from our standard Smartflow® components.”
Engineers and designers of machinery and assemblies prefer to download 3D CAD models of the components they source for their digital design. This speeds up their design process, because they don’t have to create models for those sourced components.
With the introduction of the Manifoldbuilder.com digital parts catalog, Smartflow® customers no longer have to go through the process of requesting 3D CAD models directly from the Burger & Brown Engineering , a process which formerly took two to three days. Now users can simply log on Manifoldbuilder.com to create the 3D CAD model they need, shortening the process from days to minutes.

“As an industrial manufacturer, if your goal is to improve the quality and speed of your customer service, a 3D part catalog is quickly becoming a must-have,” says Jay Hopper, President and COO of CADENAS PARTsolutions. “It’s such a simple way to dramatically shorten the turn-around time for 3D CAD model requests. What used to take days is now done online in minutes or seconds.”
