Linear Motion Manufacturer Turns Its Website into Turnkey Solution for Engineers and Adds More Products to Its 3D Parts Catalog
CINCINNATI – OH, June 4, 2019 – Helix Linear Technologies launched its new website, improving customer’s online experience and adding more products to its 3D parts catalog, powered by CADENAS PARTsolutions. With these improved capabilities and more CAD models available online, the linear motion manufacturer turns its website into a one-stop-shop for all their customers’ needs.
“The website is a turnkey solution for engineers. They can use the calculators and CAD configurator, download 3D parts and request a quote all in one place,” says Chris Nook, CEO at Helix Linear.
The new website gives engineers the information and CAD models they need without having to go through a Helix Linear employee or jump to multiple pages. Online buyers can more quickly find and specify products, download CAD models, request a quote and purchase parts from the product page – reducing the time it takes them to find and download 3D parts.
“It’s all about saving engineers design time. Our engineering customers have tight design cycles, so they want to go somewhere to get all their questions answered, select a product and move on,” says Nook.
Built by CADENAS PARTsolutions, the 3D parts catalog now offers more products for download, including electric cylinders, splines, lead screws and the 200-series linear sliders. The CAD catalog offers simple selection and configuration of products, an interactive 3D preview of the design part, and instant CAD downloads in over 150 formats and versions, including interactive 3D PDF datasheets. Any time of night or day, customers can quickly download a native CAD file from Helix Linear’s website and get back to their design.
“It’s the gold standard now – you must have CAD models on your website or else engineers are going to go somewhere else,” says Nook.
