JIE USA has released a 3D CAD gearbox and gearmotor configurator to help engineers choose motors and drives on-demand. The online tool enables engineers to identify the correct product for their design or application based on custom parameters and deliver the CAD model or PDF datasheet they need to do their job efficiently.
“Previously, customers would send us all their application information, and our engineers selected the right product for them. This meant a lot of back-and-forth with the customer if we had any questions, which took a lot of time,” said Bo Chen, president of JIE USA Inc. “Now customers can self-serve online. They enter the parameters of their application, like input power, ratio, torque, and output RPM, and the configurator recommends a compatible gearbox or gearmotor. It’s more efficient and lets the customer work on their own time rather than contacting us directly.”
JIE has also introduced configurable 3D PDF datasheets that include essential product data that their customers need.
“With these PDFs, customers don’t have to come back to us for missing data points for the product,” Chen said. “The PDF shows everything related to the product.”
“We’re really excited about this configurator. It lets customers build a compatible system on their own, and it shows everything they need to know right on the page. It’s putting design power in the customer’s hands,” he added.
