ANS extends its technical service using the TraceParts solution for publishing 3D catalogs online

Saint-Romain, France – 26 July 2021. ANS, an Italian manufacturer of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, has chosen TraceParts to make the CAD models for its products freely available on its new website and the TraceParts.com platform.

One of the defining features at ANS is that it manufactures both pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders. This characteristic has enabled ANS to carve its reputation as a national and international leader in light industry (such as packaging, labeling, machine tools, automotive and aerospace) and heavy industry (foundries, printing, pulp & paper machines, etc.).

When we asked CEO Franco Aghemo about the main obstacles preventing companies from investing in uploading their catalogs to the web, his answer was crystal clear:

In my opinion, people never refuse to invest because they’re worried or they don’t understand. Rather, they tend to be lazy to consider proposals that might be innovative, but can’t be instantly converted into a direct economic impact on the company’s performance.

But ANS didn’t hesitate or get lazy, so the company jumped at the prospect of creating its online catalog with TraceParts.

The manufacturer of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders gave the issue a great deal of thought before moving forward, and its decision ultimately addresses several of its objectives:

  • Meet the recurring demand for improving product availability in formats allowing for easier use during the design phase.
  • Reinforce the ANS brand image in the international market
  • Gain an overview of the download statistics generated by the ANS catalog

ANS’s configurable CAD models are already available on the TraceParts platform and ANS website.
