Intelligent Engineering Data

Optimal CAD Data for Engineers

Provide engineers with maximum comfort and functionality during product development. With eCATALOGsolutions you make your product data available so engineers can embed these into their designs simple and easily.

What makes a CAD model intelligent?

The geometry of a component alone is insufficient for an engineer. With eCATALOGsolutions, your digital engineering data contains all the essential metadata of the components such as kinematics information to test motion sequences, centers of mass, material or environmental protection standards.

Your catalog »Ready for INDUSTRY 4.0«

Topics such as “Industry 4.0“ and “Internet of Things“ necessitate an increase in networking between the real and the digital world. The more individual components need to communicate with each other in the production process, the more intelligent digital data must be provided.

Example: Simulation of production plants

The commissioning of a production plant means, as a rule, weeks of preparatory work for line mechanics to carry out fine-tuning for control and processes. Through the Mechatronics Concept Designer (MCD), in connection with the intelligent CAD models from CADENAS, the commissioning of technical plants can be tested beforehand and the detail coordination of control can be carried out digitally. This greatly shortens the lead time to production start.

eCATALOGsolutions enables component producers to provide their digital product data for the product development process with all the required intelligent information, thus being well-equipped for the future.

Survey – What information does the engineer really need?

The importance of intelligent engineering data for the daily work of engineers, technicians and purchasers is shown by the feedback of 1,430 professionals from the industry who were surveyed. The following graphic visualizes the share of the respondents who need this information in their daily design work.

With the Electronic Product Catalog eCATALOGsolutions, you don‘t make basic CAD models, but genuine intelligent engineering data with all the necessary information. It relieves your customer service, since fewer callbacks are required and the engineer is supported, as tedious and time-consuming preliminary work is no longer necessary.

Through CADENAS, there is finally a system on the market that offers us the possibility to integrate not only CAD geometries, but also kinematic functions, collision analysis, stroke variations and much more.
