PFA Sees 99% Customer Adoption of 3D CAD Models for New Design Applications

Cincinnati, OH and Germantown, WI – May 14, 2014 – Industrial Automation Manufacturer, PFA Incorporated, has discovered that 99% of all customer projects reviewed by their engineering design team, already include 3D CAD models generated by their online parts catalog, designed by CADENAS PARTsolutions. This remarkable insight proves the inherent business value that their 3D parts catalog delivers, making ROI a slam-dunk. PFA, a Wisconsin based manufacturer of industrial automation, injection molding and associated products, is best known for their KOR-LOK® Side-Action System products and self-locking cylinders, which are available to configure and download within the PFA online parts catalog. Many industrial manufacturers provide configurable 3D CAD models of their products, but PFA Inc. takes it a step further. When customers spec a PFA part into a new design and request a quote, PFA provides an application review to ensure the product specified will meet the exact customer requirements. Through this process PFA has visibility to every new design in which their products are used. 99% of the time, the design already features a model generated by the PFA online part catalog. 3D CAD Models PFA Announces New Digital 3D Products Available in Their Online Parts Catalog   “We already knew our 3D CAD models were having a positive impact on our business. Typically, two days after a part is downloaded, we get a call or an email from the same customer looking for a quote. Connecting the dots wasn’t too tricky,” says Mark Scanlan, Vice President and GM of PFA Inc. “What really blew us away, was the adoption rate when we would provide application reviews. 99% of the time the design already featured a model generated by our online configurator. Nobody was drawing parts themselves or sourcing elsewhere.” “PFA has done a fantastic job utilizing their online part configurator and staying in touch with their customer base, making their digital customer experience a top priority,” says Tim Thomas, CEO of CADENAS PARTsolutions. “The key to success is staying abreast of industry demands and listening to your customer needs. PFA is doing a great job of that and their investment is paying off.”
