The ABB division of electrification products now offers an interactive version of a flip catalog for the SNK series terminal blocks. Here the customers and interested parties can access intelligent, technical product information such as 3D CAD models, PDF data sheets, product videos or other websites with a click.

The French company RABOURDIN manufacturers standard parts in the field of plastic injection molding, cutting and stamping tools and has changed from its previous product catalog to the CADENAS Electronic Product Catalog. In 2017, RABOURDIN was already able to record a significant increase in the amount of 3D CAD downloads of its products.

The CADENAS 19th Industry Forum will take place in the WWK Arena in Augsburg on the 7th and 8th of March 2018. Engineers, purchasers and marketing specialists can find out about trends and innovations in the area of Strategic Parts Management, Electronic Product Catalogs as well as BIM.

Festo AG & Co. KG publishes the new online version of their configuration software Festo Design Tool 3D, which was developed in cooperation with the German software manufacturer CADENAS.

The number of downloaded 3D CAD engineering data has been on the increase since the beginning of 2017. There has been a steady number of downloads recorded of over 20 million parts per month. PARTcommunity is pleased to announce an increase over the previous year of nearly 25% of up to 260 million downloaded 3D CAD models in this year.

This year's winning project of the German Standard Parts Award (Deutscher Normteile Award) is an impressive example of how the use of standard parts can contribute to helping and supporting developing countries effectively. The worldwide unique transportable operation microscope from Prechtl Engineering won first place.

Daimler AG has been successfully using Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions from the software manufacturer CADENAS since 2002. Now the design guidelines are available as a PDF document directly in PARTsolutions and links to the engineering data within Strategic Parts Management are possible.

For the fourth time now, pupils and students from technical colleges, universities and other educational facilities had the opportunity to submit their design ideas in order to compete. The winners were announced at the Motek exhibition on 11th October in Stuttgart, Germany.
