Clippard Launches 3D Product Catalog Powered by TraceParts

Clippard to offer engineers and designers 3D models of miniature fluid power and control devices.

WILTON, New Hampshire, United States – Precision fluid power and device manufacturer Clippard Instrument Laboratory, Inc is now using the TraceParts Internet service to provide a 3D online product catalog for engineers and designers. Clippard’s customers will be able to select the right product for their needs and then download native 3D CAD models of the products into their designs.

Clippard Minimatics® are used virtually everywhere for control, interface, sensing, logic, and actuation functions. This broad range of applications spans a variety of industries including: machinery, packaging, textiles, medical equipment, animation, agriculture, material handling, mobile equipment, assembly, electronics, food processing, and many more. Special components designed for a customer’s OEM applications are also available.

“Our customers were asking for 3D models of our products to include in their designs”, says Jim Coshnitzke, Clippard’s advertising manager. “The catch was they wanted the models delivered in a wide variety of CAD system formats. TraceParts allows us to satisfy those needs.”

“Clippard has been providing precision fluid power and control devices to a wide variety of industries for over 50 years,” said Bob Noftle, president of TraceParts, Inc. “They have accomplished an excellent reputation for high quality products and customer satisfaction that is known throughout the industry. TraceParts helps Clippard strengthen relationships with its customers by saving them time and helping them to make better design decisions faster than with paper-based catalogs.”
