Rotomation Selects CADENAS PARTsolutions to Provide Digital 3D Part Content

Improved user interface streamlines the specification process for design engineers.


Cincinnati, OH – Oct 09, 2013 – Rotomation has selected CADENAS PARTsolutions to create and support their all-new catalog of online digital 3D part content. A Florida-based manufacturer of pneumatic and low-pressure hydraulic actuators, Rotomation will be introducing their new configurator, capable of generating more than 30 billion unique products, along with a newly designed website in early 2014.

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 CAD models 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.”

Rotomation is upgrading from a solution which only provided CAD models limited to a few formats.

“We were unsure of the future of our existing configurator platform. We also wanted a more reliable and user friendly configurator interface,” adds Norman Lane, President of Rotomation.

Rotomation is upgrading their online part catalog with CADENAS eCATALOGsolutions technology to provide more than 150 native and neutral CAD and graphic formats 150 native and neutral including all major design applications such as 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.

“Rotomation customers will love the added power and flexibility of the CADENAS PARTsolutions interface,” adds Jay Hopper, President and COO of CADENAS PARTsolutions. “Thanks to the new parts catalog and interface, customers will return again and again, pulling new sales through the design process. This will prove to be a significant boost for Rotomation’s marketing program, and their sales team.”
