The case for manufacturers to prioritize digital transformation
A clear and focused digital strategy is essential for any businesses to stay competitive. Component manufacturers must be clear about who is the decision maker when it comes to selecting or specifying their product. If the process chain is traced back to the beginning, you’ll see that engineers, architects or planners are the driving force behind the selection components within their designs. This is why it is important for manufacturers to tailor digital services to this particular audience.

The digital transformation of the engineering process
To add value to the engineering digital transformation process, digital components must have detailed data which goes beyond pure geometry. This data includes kinematics, direction of motion, degrees of freedom, acceleration, deceleration, nozzle, connection information, mass centers and more
In the course of the digital transformation of the engineering process, digital components must therefore have comprehensive additional information that goes beyond pure geometry, such as kinematics, direction of motion, degrees of freedom, acceleration, deceleration, nozzle and connection information or mass centers.
Whether your products are involved in the design process, depends on whether your product data is up to the challenge of the modern engineering process.
Due to recent events: All trade fairs for 2020 cancelled!
Due to the exceptional situation in 2020, 2083 trade fairs and exhibitions worldwide have so far been postponed or cancelled (as of April 8, according to dfv Mediengruppe). In addition, it has also become impossible for sales staff to make a personal appointment with a prospective customer.
The Solution for Sales Contacts
With the digital twin powered by CADENAS you are on the safe side:
45,706,094 downloads (=sales contacts) in March and thus even an increase of more than 19 % compared to February! The figures show that in the current exceptional situation 3D CAD & BIM models are in demand as digital twins as never before.

how digital product data increases your sales potential
Your products must be available in CAD without detours
The ultimate goal for component manufacturers is to ensure that their products find their way into designs. If the digital engineering data is available immediately in the specific formats engineers and designers need. With an Electronic Product Catalog, your products are available for use seamlessly within your customers' CAD systems.
Get your products found with intelligent search tools
Engineers and architects spend 27% of their time searching for information. To reduce the effort searching for components, architects, planners, engineers and designers use 3Dfindit.com's intelligent search functions to find the components they need. Feature your digital product catalog on 3Dfindit.com and make your products easily accessible.
Find geometrically similar parts based on a reference part
Find 3D parts based on their functionality
Filtering of parts within the parts library by color
2D Sketch Search
Find similar components by drawing a simple 2D sketch
Provide detailed, intelligent product data
Engineers and product developers want to concentrate on developing innovative products. If only low-fidelity CAD models are available, engineers have to spend time researching the relevant information to manually supplement within the design.
Conversely, digital twins, are already loaded with intelligent product data. This saves a time in daily design work and accelerates the time-to-market. Manufacturers who provide high-quality product data will reap the benefits.
What makes a component intelligent?
With an Electronic Product Catalog from CADENAS you provide more than just simple CAD models. The intelligent engineering data provides detailed information such as kinematics, direction of motion, degrees of freedom, acceleration, deceleration, nozzle and connection information, and mass centers. This enables manufacturers to provide their customers with optimal data for the digital transformation of the engineering process.
Data that Intelligent digital components must provide
Make your products accessible 24/7 worldwide
It is no longer enough to rely on trade shows to generate leads.
Digital tools are the future of marketing. An Electronic Product Catalog powered by eCATALOGsolutions ensures international visibility for your products. This generates more leads at a lower cost per lead than other marketing initiatives.
Offer the right product to the right person, at the right time
The Electronic Product Catalog has completely redefined the sales processes for component manufacturers: The 3D CAD download portal is an ideal research platform for engineers and purchasers. Each download provides valuable information about the users, which can be evaluated for Smart Engineering.
Your team knows your customers and their needs best, use the tools and information to refine and improve your sales process.
What are you waiting for
Digital transformation leads to new possibilities for your sales and marketing strategy. By providing intelligent engineering data and digital twins, you become a key contributor to your customer’s product development process and your components will find their way into more designs than ever before!
