PARTsolutions, LLC and U.S. Tsubaki Inc. announce the launch of the U.S. Tsubaki Attachment Chain Configurator. Created for the company’s Roller Chain Division, the U.S. Tsubaki Attachment Chain Configurator contains many of the most common attachments used in a wide variety of conveyor and packaging applications, and automates a process that has traditionally been manual and prone to errors. This new digital tool not only enables engineers and designers to create custom attachment chain configurations interactively via the Internet, but also provides users with the ability to download 3D files in a variety of electronic formats and request a quotation.
The first solution of its kind to be offered by a chain manufacturer, the Tsubaki Chain Configurator uses PARTsolutions’ rules-based logic to quickly configure and download high-quality product data in native CAD, simplifying the previous time-consuming and complex manual paper process of configuring standard chains or specialty attachments. More specifically, with the web-based graphical configurator, customers and partners can take the following actions:
• Interactively design hundreds of thousands of attachment chain variants by selecting graphic representations of chain sizes (pitch), types, materials, repeating sections, and attachments.
• Preview the product interactively on screen.
• Download the product as a 2D or 3D CAD model in any of more than 85 native and neutral CAD and graphic file formats.
• Submit the configured product for quotation.
For U.S. Tsubaki, the solution is already having a dramatic impact on its demand generation by allowing the company to proactively deliver sales and support information to its customers in less time. In its 90- day beta period with select customers and partners, U.S. Tsubaki is averaging 300+ configurations amonth and is saving end users hours of time in configuring custom attachment chains.
