Güdel, Inc. Posted 09/11/2014
ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN - Güdel now offers its entire catalog of linear motion components, tracks and gantries as a free app from the Apple iTunes Store. Systems integrators and those who use apps developed specifically for the iPad need only search under the name GCZ Catalog.
Güdel linear motion technology is used in traditional and leading-edge applications for robots and automation, especially in the manufacturing sector, transportation and automotive industry, energy supply, logistics and warehousing.
“Automation workers and systems integrators routinely turn to online resources,” said Joe Campbell, Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Güdel Inc. in Ann Arbor, Michigan. “GCZ Catalog is on Apple iTunes so anyone with an iPad who builds and specifies automation has easy access to the latest generation of linear motion technology.”
Güdel has manufacturing and service locations around the globe so the app includes several language options. It is available in English with translations in German, Spanish, Dutch, French and Russian. There are specifications, drawings and photo galleries to guide the user toward practical, ready-to-use information.
“Güdel is internationally known for robust and reliable components like racks, pinions and gearboxes as well as complete modular systems. In fact, Güdel is the only track manufacturer that is vertically integrated from linear motion technology through the final track product,” said Campbell. “Güdel has been doing linear motion for generations, and this app is a modern convenience for everyone in automation, especially innovative minded systems integrators and OEMs.”
The GCZ Catalog app on Apple iTunes is one of several online resources offered by Güdel. The Güdel website offers a unique “Robot Sizing Tool” to help engineers select the right robot for a specific gantry or Trackmotion. Virtually all robot brands are supported by Güdel and the robot sizing tool is updated constantly for new models. Users can also access CAD drawings and the Güdel catalog from www.us.gudel.com.
