TraceParts publishes its annual report on the use of sensors and measurement systems in design projects

In 2015, industrial design professionals downloaded over 140,000 CAD models of sensors and measurement systems from the TraceParts platform.

Saint-Romain, France; April 20, 2016 - TraceParts, a world-leading supplier of 3D digital content, has produced a detailed report on the CAD models of sensors and measurement systems downloaded according to product family, country and area of activity.


Several industrial design professionals no longer bother modeling existing parts and instead prioritize the use of parts whose CAD models are available and certified by manufacturers. In 2015, the number of CAD files downloaded from the TraceParts platform broke the 60-million bar, which confirms the trend seen in the world of computer-aided design.

For all the companies operating in the sensors and measurement systems market, this report highlights the growing number of new projects launched during 2015 according to country and industry, and provides detailed information about the component families chosen by designers, such as position sensors, photoelectric sensors, inductive sensors, pressure sensors and other measurement systems.

This 2015 report on sensors and measurement systems is available free of charge from the TraceParts website and follows the two previously published reports on bearings and electric and electromechanical parts.

The TraceParts activity report on sensors and measurement systems is available free of charge from the traceparts.com/pcs/sensors-measurement-systems/.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
