TraceParts Reaches New Milestone – 3.5 Million Registered Users

Saint-Romain - France, April 25, 2019 - TraceParts, one of the world's leading providers of CAD files and 3D models, has exceeded its previous record of 3 million registered users set in October 2017 by adding another 500,000 members in just 18 months, bringing its current total to 3.5 million.

Since its launch in July 2001, the platform has grown steadily in terms of content and number of users. It is now one of the primary resources for engineers and design professionals from all over the world who utilize the site to download millions of CAD models for industrial parts.

Because designs for new components are added daily to the TraceParts library, not only are more users continually registering for the platform but existing members are increasing their usage, which bodes well for suppliers.

"Our vast selection of standard components, all instantly available as 3D models with full technical specifications, makes TraceParts an essential tool for designers seeking parts for their OEM products and machines. In addition to constantly expanding our library, we're always adding new features and technologies that improve the user experience and maximize the number of leads for suppliers who publish on our platform", says Bertrand Cressent, Product Manager at TraceParts.

In the past year, TraceParts has further refined its ultra-high performance search engine to deliver even faster, more accurate results. Additionally, the platform's multi-criteria filtering system allows designers to fine-tune their CAD model searches to certain criteria such as type of parts, suppliers, standards, dimensions and specifications.

With a history of over 18 years of steadfast growth, the TraceParts platform now provides its members with online access to nearly 700 catalogs and over 111 million part numbers. Moreover, CAD models can be downloaded in all major native and neutral formats, which greatly simplifies and accelerates the design process for users.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
