Online engineering – simple and more efficient

More efficiency in the engineering process – that is the basis on which item has been expanding its range of products over the years to include numerous online tools and digital services. The company is bringing a wide range of exhibits to Motek, from simple product selection tools to comprehensive packages for the digital engineering process. These include, for example, item MotionDesigner®, a selection and design tool for configuring a ready-to-install turnkey system comprising Linear Unit, Motor and Controller. The portfolio of digital solutions also incorporates the SystemMobile Configurator for mobile racks, the Work Bench Configurator for custom-designing work benches and the Stairway/Platform Query Assistant. All digital solutions are always built around customer requirements and the latest developments on the market. The aim is to reduce complexity in engineering processes, making them as straightforward as possible, so that customers can concentrate on what they do best. The latest addition to the digital engineering portfolio is the item Machining Tool. This solution means users no longer need to worry about having to make their own drawings, bills of material for production or manual costings. Customers can configure a profile that fits their specific requirements in just a few clicks and then immediately order all the associated components and connection processing online at the touch of a mouse button. The item Machining Tool incorporates interactive 3D technology, which makes it extremely easy for users to specify the length of the profile and integrate fasteners precisely where they are needed. If requested, item will take care of all connection processing – which represents an enormous time-saving. This also prevents errors from the very start. What’s more, the system also automatically generates end-to-end project documentation and all technical drawings. 

During Motek, visitors can see for themselves the digital solutions expertise and extensive range of online tools that item offers. The company will also be showcasing its latest online engineering innovation – the item Engineering Tool. Besides promoting these useful tools, the company’s stand at the fair is also highlighting additional complementary digital services such as support and chat offerings and an OCI interface for exchanging catalogue datasets between different systems and connecting to a catalogue system. As a result, item supports direct online ordering, making the whole process more flexible, faster and simpler. The end result is lower procurement and processing costs. 

item is exhibiting in Hall 3, Stand 3205, at Motek.
