The new website, built by CADENAS PARTsolutions, features an online 3D CAD catalog, enabling engineers to quickly find and configure the exact product they need, all directly within the American Cylinder site. In one click, engineers generate an interactive 3D preview on-demand. They can then download the product model in over 150 CAD and graphic formats including native formats in Autodesk® Inventor®, SolidWorks®, Siemens Solid Edge®, NX® software, PTC's Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire®, Creo®, CATIA® and many more. This on-demand capability makes the job of design engineers easier and delivers an exceptional customer experience.
American Cylinder added the CADENAS PARTsolutions embedded 3D CAD catalog to their website to better meet the needs of engineers who require high-quality product information instantly, including 3D CAD models, to complete their designs. Additionally, 3D graphic visibility and functionality is now available to the small company that does not have sophisticated CAD software to work with.
"We selected CADENAS PARTsolutions for many reasons," says Richard Lutkus, Vice President of Engineering at American Cylinder. "Their level of expertise within the Cylinder industry was key for making our choice. It makes our job much easier if our partner really understands our business. PARTsolutions was also able to offer us the most complete package of services for revamping our Website and offering a 3D product configurator for our customers. We were able to work with one company for website design and development of a part configurator and selector to 3D model creation and generation of CAD and PDF downloadable files. It would have taken a combination of several vendors to fulfill the services PARTsolutions was able to offer us in a single package."
"To get a competitive edge, we needed to upgrade our online product catalog to include 3D CAD models. We began to assess the sheer volume of CAD formats we needed to deliver to our customers," said Lutkus, "For our team to create every product we produce, in every format engineers request, would have been a monumental task. PARTsolutions was able to create our configurable 3D CAD models in over 150 formats for a fraction of what it would cost us to produce internally."
"By partnering with CADENAS PARTsolutions, manufacturers can focus on what they do best, without the distraction of trying to build their own configurator or worrying about keeping up with the latest CAD technologies," said Rob Zesch, President of CADENAS PARTsolutions.
"This is our absolute focus and expertise," says Zesch. "We're able to deliver the tools that engineers are demanding and in turn help American Cylinder create a total customer experience that drives additional marketing leads, sales and exceptional customer service."
