New 3D product catalog by ETA S.p.A.: BIM, CAD & CAE data streamline engineering design process

3D models of industrial cabinets and enclosures now available on CADENAS download portals

ETA has established itself worldwide as a manufacturer of high-quality control cabinets and enclosures for automation systems. ETA's vision is focused on future viability and innovation, which led the company to work with CADENAS to develop a digital product catalog based on eCATALOGsolutions technology to "provide better customer service, especially in terms of usability of technical data," according to Francesco Basta, Sales Manager at E.T.A. S.p.A. ETA's new catalog now offers engineers and designers on-demand access to BIM, CAD and CAE data of ECOR and ENUX automation cabinets.

ETA streamlines the design process for engineers with BIM, CAD & CAE data

Providing high-quality digital product data is now a basic requirement for component manufacturers, though the requirements of mechanical engineering differ greatly from those of architecture and electrical design. In mechanical design, for example, the 3D part geometries play a particularly important role, while in electrical engineering connection information and circuit diagram symbols are more relevant. The component must then contain information on the correct dimensioning of the installed components or on the compatibility of connectors, as the case may be.

If this information is not supplied directly with the CAD model, it has to be collected manually from various sources, which can be time-consuming. Therefore, ETA needed a digital solution that centrally manages CAD, CAE and BIM data to provide consistent information. With the new product catalog based on eCATALOGsolutions technology by CADENAS, ETA offers its customers high-quality product data with all the necessary metadata for design. At, ECOR and ENUX cabinets can be configured and downloaded in 150 of the most popular CAD, CAE and BIM formats.

"ETA developed the new BIM CAD CAE catalog in collaboration with CADENAS to meet the growing demand for digital product data in various formats. "The main benefit of eCATALOGsolutions is precisely the possibility of guaranteeing the comprehensiveness of technical information for our customers, thus implementing internal efficiency and customer service. By the way, at ETA, digital transformation is also this: ease of use of product information and efficiency of the organization and processes for providing it'," says Francesco Basta.
