Madison Heights, Michigan, July 28, 2006 — DE-STA-CO, a leader in clamping, gripping, transferring and robotic tooling solutions, recently announced a strategic partnership with PARTsolutions LLC, a leading provider of digital parts management technology and services. The partnership will provide DE-STA-CO with a unique digital catalog allowing the company’s products to be viewed and downloaded by engineers all over the globe by visiting
According to DE-STA-CO’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing Kel Landers, PARTsolutions was chosen because of its worldwide reach and outstanding reputation. “We selected PARTsolutions after a thorough review of technology available in the market today,” said Mr. Landers. “We also chose PARTsolutions due to its ability to put our products on the desktops of engineers worldwide.”
PARTsolutions will provide a digital directory of DE-STA-CO’s products in various online marketplaces, such as PARTsolutions’ new Autodesk Supplier Content Center and Intelligent Parts Management solutions. As a result, DE-STA-CO is able to introduce its products to prospective clients around the globe, regardless of the CAD technology that many organizations are using. Furthermore, PARTsolutions’ technology will make it possible for DE-STA-CO to deliver its digital catalog on CD and print, allowing even clients with the most stringent Internet restrictions to easily access the company’s catalog.
The digital content resulting from this collaboration is extremely user-friendly and provides users with numerous options. PARTsolutions has enabled online viewing of DE-STA-CO’s collection of assembly automation products, which allows prospective customers to graphically configure components with the sizes, features and options they require. Once configured, PARTsolutions creates high-quality, native CAD data, including the DE-STA-CO part number.
The DE-STA-CO line of manufacturing process products will use the latest technologies available from PARTsolutions. An interactive 3D product configurator, instant product number updates, direct download to the desktop, and native 2D and 3D native CAD formats will present significant time-savings and will allow DE-STA-CO products to be placed into designs quickly and easily.
Both companies are looking forward to a successful and mutually beneficial partnership. Tim Thomas, CEO of PARTsolutions, commented on the strategic relationship. “PARTsolutions is excited about its partnership with DE-STA-CO and looks forward to serving the company and its customers by providing the highest quality digital catalog available.”
