Conveyor Belt Manufacturer and Distributor Eases Their Customer’s Digital Experience by Providing 3D Models, CAD Downloads of Configurable Motorized Pulleys.
March 7, 2018 – Sparks Belting Company has launched an all-new online catalog of 3D CAD models for their popular Dura-Drive Plus motorized pulleys. Built by CADENAS PARTsolutions, the configurator makes doing business with Sparks easier than ever by enabling customers to find, configure and download a digital 3D CAD model that fits their needs.
Sparks Belting is a fabricator, manufacturer and distributor of conveyor belting, motorized pulleys and other conveyor solutions. The company strives to provide the best solutions to conveyor needs by collaborating with customers to customize their products to match their customers’ applications. The new online configurator simplifies that process by offering configurable 3D CAD models of their products.
“What we had provided previously was a static 2D CAD drawing for each of our five different pulleys. There was no configuration or customization represented, which was not enough detail for many of our customer needs,” says Cal TenHarmsel, Technical Sales Manager at Sparks Belting. “We were getting more and more requests all the time for configurable 3D models from both returning customers and new customers.”
With the 3D CAD catalog, Sparks Belting can now not only provide 3D CAD downloads to their customers but also offer technological solutions, which makes it easier for customers to do their job and to work with Sparks Belting.
Eryn Leedy, Marketing Coordinator at Sparks Belting, adds, “We want to provide technology to our customers to make it easier for them to do their jobs. To have people come to us, design their own pulley and then get the 3D CAD file from us makes it extremely easy for them to design a Sparks product into their conveyor system.”
In addition, customers using Sparks Belting’s new online configurator can download the 3D CAD models in over 100 native CAD formats and send digital data sheets to anyone in their company with 3D product images and specs.
