Ortman Fluid Power Launches On-Demand Configurator Tool
Hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder manufacturer enhances online experience for engineers with CAD downloads, 3D configurator and integrated pricing.
March 26, 2021
Ortman Fluid Power has added a 3D CAD catalog of configurable cylinders, built by CADENAS and according to National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) standards. The new tool provides on-demand access to design NFPA cylinders as well as Ortman’s 101 series cylinders online. This tool empowers customers to find, configure, download and generate pricing for products directly from the Ortman website.
Known for its Spacesaver line, Ortman Fluid Power is recognized in the cylinder industry. The Spacesaver line is smaller and provides a rebuildable cylinder option where a standard NFPA design will not fit.
“This 3D CAD configurator is one of the most efficient and full-featured front-end tools we could give to our customers,” says Scott Paxton, owner and president of Ortman Fluid Power. “The new tool built by CADENAS empowers customers to make product changes on-the-fly, as their design evolves, or their project requirements adjust.”
Engineers can find, design and download Ortman products in more than 150 native and neutral CAD formats, including 3D PDF datasheets. A built-in, dynamic pricing module shows an engineer the exact price as they change their cylinder design. No matter the mount, bore or stroke selected, the pricing tool is active, giving the updated price with each configuration made.
“We want to be responsive to our customer’s needs,” says Paxton. “Our tool delivers what an engineer, purchasing agent or project manager needs, including online pricing, when it’s most convenient for them.”
The Ortman cylinder configurator is now live for engineers to access CAD downloads from the Spacesaver line, as well as NFPA hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders.
