Cable tray manufacturer Unitray launches its CAD catalog of custom cable trays and accessories. Built by CADENAS PARTsolutions, the catalog doubles down on Unitray’s delivery time and customization capabilities by providing instant CAD models of configurable products.
Unitray is a 100% Canadian-owned, family-run business and manufacturer of cable trays and component accessories. Known for high-quality products and custom manufacturing work, the cable tray manufacturer delivers custom solutions to engineers.
“We can do custom manufacturing in a very short timeframe—that’s really where we excel,” says Jonathan Cook, vice president at Unitray. “We’re able to deliver when we say we’re going to. Products that take 6 weeks or so to produce we can manufacture in 5 to 7 days, and often overnight.”
Now, Unitray can deliver on-demand, digital product models to customers faster than ever . Instead of using a generic drawing with open specifications, the CAD catalog delivers instant 3D models and exact drawings of Unitray products, which customers can specify and test directly in their virtual design.
“We have over 50,000 parts that engineers can download. With the CAD catalog, our customers can download exactly what they need. They don’t have to send in some great, big, huge file with every single product,” says Cook.
In addition to its simple-selection and configuration capabilities, the online product catalog gives a wide selection of native outputs to all major CAD systems, including Autodesk AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor and Revit, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, PTC Wildfire and CREO, Siemens NX, CATIA and more. This enables Unitray to provide 150+ CAD and imaging formats as instant, native downloads to their customers, including PDF product datasheets with 3D interactive previews of the exact product.
