JIE USA has released a 3D CAD configurator to help engineers choose motors and drives on demand. Built by CADENAS PARTsolutions, 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.
JIE is a drive solutions provider specializing in gearbox and motor-related products for original equipment manufacturers and maintenance, repair and operations applications. Assembled in the United States, its products include gearboxes, motors, gearmotors, electric controllers and variable frequency drive. With the new tool, JIE allows engineers to instantly find and specify compatible motors for existing machinery and new designs.
“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,” says Bo Chen, president of JIE USA. “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.
“With these PDFs, customers don't have to come back to us for missing data points for the product,” Chen says. “The PDF shows everything related to the product.”
Chen adds, ”[The configurator] 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.”
