Navigator Brings Thousands Of CAD Files, Product Specs to TE-CO Customers

World class product manufacturer leverages Thomas's technology to offer richer product data and 3D CAD models

TE-CO Workholding has integrated its website with the Navigator Platform, a Thomas technology that allows TE-CO to provide its customers with thousands of CAD models and product specifications.

The announcement follows a recent partnership between the two companies that emerged to help TE-CO and its distributors improve efficiencies in the availability and flow of rich product data to provide end-users with a better digital experience when searching for TE-CO products.

Headquartered in Union, Ohio, TE-CO manufactures a diverse line of workholding products used by small machine shops and Fortune 100 companies alike. Products include clamping and set-up tools, tooling components, CMM fixturing and spring-loaded devices for military jets and drones, surgical instruments and a range of other industrial products.

Prospective TE-CO customers — typically OEM engineers — require up-to-date CAD models and specs to ensure the products will fit their exact specifications. With a powerful eCatalog active on TE-CO’s website, customers can access a searchable library of thousands of detailed product specifications. When a product is selected, users can dynamically generate a 3D CAD model or drawing from the latest data in the Navigator eCatalog. Customers can thus be assured they are getting the most up-to-date data with every download.

“The integration with Thomas’s Navigator Platform brings a more positive digital experience to our customers,” said Darin Wion, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TE-CO. “The technology’s capabilities helps our clients get the most current specifications and assures them they can confidently commit TE-CO products into their projects.”

Navigator is an innovative and dynamic eCatalog designed by Thomas explicitly for use in with complex industrial products. Aside from generating specs, CAD models, and drawings, Navigator also functions as a content management system that allows manufacturers to easily maintain product data across their own website and with their distributors. Product manufacturers of complex industrial components depend on the Thomas platform to deliver multiple CAD formats and a world-class digital customer experience on their website.
