CAPVIDIA, a world leader in 3D engineering software, announces a newly established cooperation with CADENAS GmbH, a world market leader for standard parts software solutions.

CADENAS released the latest version of the Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions. Version 9.8 is characterized by more speed and better performance. Highlights are the accelerated intelligent finding functions based on the Geometric Similarity Search GEOsearch, the 2D Sketch-, Topology- and Full-text Search as well as the simplified remote access with a central hosting on the new Application Server web service.

NKK Switches, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of innovative electromechanical switching devices, and CADENAS, a global provider of online product configurators, today announced the migration of their 3D switch library and configurator directly to NKK's website.

There's a saying by Mark Twain "Clothes make the man: Naked people have little or no influence on society." This perfectly true aphorism can also be applied to the business world: The web presence makes the company. Therefore it is all the more important to create a web presence that makes a good impression, catches the attention of the visitor and shows the visitor what he needs to find. This is why a great number of manufacturers have already opted for the new PARTcommunity embedded technology. With this advancement in the field of electronic product catalogs the complete 3 D CAD download portal, based on CADENAS eCATALOGsolutions technology, is integrated into the website in the course of improving the web presence. Thus customers have direct access to all 3 D CAD data of the product catalog.

A big product selection offers customers many options to realize their ideas and desires. The search for the suitable part, however, can quickly become a needle-in-the-haystack situation. At the Industry Forum 2014 Dipl.-Ing. Anatol Kligermann explained how the company Balluff solved this challenge in cooperation with CADENAS by means of product selectors in its electronic product catalog.
