Performance Feeders Reduces Design Time with Launch of 3D CAD Configurator built by CADENAS
Customizable conveyors can be designed to fit customer need with quick precision
Performance Feeders has recently launched an all-new interactive conveyor catalog built by CADENAS. The new tool will enable users to instantly design and download conveyor models on-demand, streamlining the engineering and manufacturing process. Performance Feeders has always been known for their highly customizable vibratory feeders and conveyors for assembly and packaging operations, now they are also known for their digital speed and convenience.
Before implementing the 3D CAD configurator through CADENAS, the process to get a conveyor design was completely manual. Engineers would contact the company by phone to get drawings before they could select and purchase the conveyor they need.
“With CADENAS, our engineering and design time has been decreased from days, to just hours,” says Performance Feeders President, Greg Pflum, “By supplying our customers with this instantaneous design and working CAD model, it’s a smoother process overall.” Since design has gone digital, engineers can create the exact product they need by themselves, saving them time and making the process much easier.
Why Performance Feeders made the switch
The move to CADENAS PARTsolutions LLC represents a significant step into the digital world, enabling them to become more user-friendly, and setting them apart from their industry peers. The new 3D CAD configurator reduces design time by providing users with instant on-demand access to create their conveyors.
“The goal for today’s manufacturer is to provide a simple and direct path to their products,” says Jay Hopper President and COO of CADENAS PARTsolutions LLC. “By providing on-demand product information and instant design capabilities, Performance Feeders is removing the hurdles in the design process and setting a new standard within their industry, resulting in increased sales and customer loyalty.”
