New comprehensive tool increases speed and eases CAD design of customized conveyor systems.
Bloomfield, Conn. – Leading conveyor system designer and manufacturer mk North America has announced the official release of a new online conveyor modeling tool, CAD360!, that makes it faster and easier than ever to design and share custom designed conveyor systems.
The latest release which replaces QuickDesigner, adds industry-leading speed to the modeling process. Users can work via the web on one page without having to navigate to multiple pages or install software. With CAD360!, users simply input the desired values for length, width and height, select drive location and desired options, and the model is generated on demand. Users can create a single belt conveyor, or choose from a variety of predesign conveyor system layouts to work with.
Todd St. Pierre, Vice President of Operations at mk North America commented, “CAD360! is a very powerful and complete tool for modeling and designing in all facets of a project. You can design anything from simple conveyors to a complex, multi-module pallet handling system. This program can be used by designers, engineers and project managers. We are very excited to offer a complete solution to support our customer’s requirements during the design phase of their project.”
CAD360! is a much more comprehensive offering for designing conveyor systems using an online CAD modeling tool. It allows for 2D and 3D models to be downloaded and the use of PDF and JPG files for easy sharing across departments and non-technical teams.
Shadi Rizk, Engineering Manager, I-C Automation commented on how the new tool is being used to transform operations. “mk’s CAD360!! tool helps our team simplify and streamline our quoting and design process. We now easily generate a 3D model in our native cad format to incorporate in our simulations and drawings, then turn around and give it back to mk for pricing; ensuring we are getting exactly what we need when we need it. “
