brandgroup Launches New 3D CAD Configurator
Selection of complex arc springs simplifies planning processes for engineers and minimizes sources of error, company reports.
April 11, 2022
brandgroup releases its new product configurator for arc springs based on the eCATALOGsolutions technology by CADENAS. Engineers and designers can customize the geometric and functional features of the arc springs with the new product, CADENAS reports.
The new product configurator by brandgroup is designed to reduce the high complexity of designing and planning arc springs. The arc spring, a form of helical compression spring, has a precurved or arc-shaped helical axis and is ideal for use as a rotational energy store. Arc springs are characterized in particular by their long service life.
The product configurator is based on complex calculations around the topic of arc springs.
When creating the configurator for arc springs, it was important to the manufacturer that a successfully established software technology was used.
“We decided on the comprehensive solution by CADENAS because the company has a great deal of know-how in the creation of complex configurators and also offers access to thousands of international designers, engineers and application developers,” brandgroup said in a statement.
Engineers and designers no longer have to contact component manufacturers by email or phone to obtain the product information they need. Thanks to the configurator, the intelligent product data of brandgroup's arc springs can now be found easily and quickly, the company reports.
After selecting the respective features such as spring radius, spring angle, diameter and number of coils, users can download the 3D CAD models of the arc springs in over 150 common native and neutral CAD formats free of charge and integrate them directly into their designs as well as planning. Links to the brandgroup website or the respective product page can also be used to request a specific quote.
