ARO Fluid Management reduces turnaround time for CAD models by up to 5 days with product configurator
CADENAS technology enables configuration & download of 3D CAD models within a few minutes
ARO® Fluid Management has launched a new, interactive 3D CAD product configurator powered by CADENAS. The new tool on www.arozone.com and www.PARTcommunity.com offers engineers thousands of configurations for ARO's 17 primary valve lines, which they can customize as needed and then download in over 150 native CAD formats. This way, the tool reduces design time by providing immediate 3D CAD models downloads of customized ARO valves.
Quick data provision instead of two to five-day turnaround
“Previously, customers would go through an authorized ARO distributor or our customer service department, and it was a two to five-day turnaround to receive a product model,” said Ann Dine, North America fluid power product manager for ARO. “The configurator provides on-demand access to CAD models. Instead of going through multiple departments, customers can get what they need and return to their work immediately. It makes finding the right product much more efficient,” Dine added.
In addition to pneumatic valves, ARO's portfolio also includes cylinders, various pumps, filters, regulators and lubricators, as well as accessories. Engineers and designers can test the required valve directly within their CAD design using ARO's new online configurator. “This online tool enables our customers to instantly find, configure and download the exact product they need,” Dine said. “It enables them to more accurately test the product within their design, ensuring it’s right for their application. When they’re finished, they can order the exact part number, confirming they have the right part the first time.”
