Components Award-winning 3D CAD product catalogue
Automation specialist Festo has been awarded the Gold Catalog Seal by Cadenas for its comprehensive digital 3D CAD product catalogue.
Festo has been successfully using its digital product catalogue based on the eCatalog solutions technology from Cadenas for many years, creating the basis for digital twins of its products. The 3D CAD product catalogue fulfills several important criteria such as the integration of a product configurator, automatic 2D dimensioning for CAD components, and product data in at least three languages. These features are checked by the Cadenas quality assurance department. Up to now, the golden catalog seal has been awarded to 24 of the more than 800 product catalogs in the Strategic Parts Management Part solutions as well as the 3D CAD download portal Part community.
Intuitive configurators facilitate product selection in addition to providing intelligent 3D CAD models as digital twins in over 150 common native and neutral CAD formats. This way, engineers and designers can easily and quickly select automation components according to the modular principle and put them together for their specific requirements, despite the immense number of variants. The Design Tool 3D, for instance, enables designers, purchasers and fitters to design, order and put together product assemblies quickly, reliably and efficiently, and to obtain transparent prices and delivery times.
The integration of the Design Tool 3D Online in the product catalog offers designers, purchasers and fitters even more comfort and enables the fast, safe and efficient design, ordering and assembly of Festo product assemblies.
The Festo product catalog contains comprehensive engineering data, such as weight, kinematics, coloring, end-of-life, eClass classifications, etc., in addition to 3D CAD geometries of the components. They provide maximum convenience and functionality for product development. On the top of that, the product catalog supports the company's international orientation by making all product information available worldwide in 15 languages.
