PUTZIN Maschinenbau GmbH provides intelligent 3D CAD models of its gear pumps, simplifying the design of complex lubricating systems. The Electronic Product Catalog is based on eCATALOGsolutions technology by CADENAS and has now been enhanced with important metadata such as weights and tariff numbers:
Environmental protection is also an issue in the development of new technical products in engineering. Since 2017, the so-called RoHS Directive also pertains to mechanical engineering and construction. We give tips on how component manufacturers can use environmental standards as a competitive advantage.
With the first rays of sunshine in spring, plants begin to sprout everywhere. Very similar to the CADENAS 3D CAD models download portal PARTcommunity: In March 2018 for the first time within a month, over 25.9 million 3D CAD models were downloaded by engineers and purchasers.
In order to make the finding of existing components in the company not a stroke of luck, PARTsolutions by CADENAS provides engineers extensive search methods. Therefore, they have more time for creative design.
Since February of this year, engineers not only have access to the extended Electronic Product Catalog of RK Rose+Krieger but also to the new interactive product configurator of Move-Tec "E" assembly for linear units with spindle drive, lifting columns and electric cylinder.
Shadow plays in engineering: Nature shows how a simple 2D image can be made from any 3D object by shadowing. If you could reverse the process, you would easily obtain a corresponding 3D object. Luckily there is the 2D sketch search by CADENAS for this purpose.
The design competition Engineering Newcomer, organized by CADENAS GmbH, norelem Normelemente KG, Bundesarbeitskreis Fachschule für Technik and Solidpro GmbH, offers pupils as well as students of technical subjects a platform to show their talent and at the same time serves as a career springboard.
