LEMO resta connessa agli uffici tecnici di tutto il mondo grazie a TraceParts

The international expert in push-pull connectors chooses TraceParts for its 3D model library and e-marketing services.

Lemo

LEMO is a global leader in the design and manufacture of push-pull connectors for electrical, fluid and fiber optic transmissions.

Its products respond to the needs of customers in a variety of markets, including military, medical, industrial control, measurement, audio-video and telecommunications. Founded in 1946, LEMO employs 1,300 people. Its headquarters and three plants are based near Lausanne, Switzerland.

With 17 sales offices around the world, LEMO generates most of its revenue from direct sales, while 95% of its customers are located outside Switzerland.

3D models required by customers

In response to growing demand for 3D models from users of its products, LEMO enlisted the support of TraceParts in 2010. Serge Buechli, Product Manager at LEMO, explains:

User enquiries were handled by our local subsidiaries, which then had to get the data from our design office, a process that wasted time and generated no added value, especially since the format that we supplied was rarely the one that had been asked for!

More than 14,000 connectors references of Lemo are available on the TraceParts CAD portal

In six months, all product families selected by LEMO – representing 14,000 of the company’s 50,000 items – were uploaded and made available on the TraceParts.com portal in all the CAD formats on the market.

Work on the models has also had a beneficial effect on the www.lemo.com site. The manufacturer’s portal features a sophisticated configurator for looking up connectors according to specific functional and dimensional criteria.

The TraceParts teams incorporated a 3D viewer and downloader into the configurator.

Connectors on the radar of more designers and buyers

We offer our customers a high value-added service by giving them access to 3D models on our site. New families will soon be added, Serge Buechli continues. But results have gone far beyond our initial objective.

Major retailers, such as RS Components, have also gone for the TraceParts technology, thereby offering additional access to LEMO’s products.

Push marketing

In a bid to promote its products to equipment designers, LEMO regularly uses TraceParts e-marketing services through its newsletter. 

As such, we benefit from the foothold that TraceParts had gained in design firms around the world, allowing us to address specific regions and markets. concludes Serge Buechli

Chambrelan and TraceParts: a partnership between professionals

The teams at TraceParts came through with this particular requirement. Our catalog is regularly updated, and TraceParts supports the changes with the same quality of service since the beginning, such as when uploading new products as is the case this year.

Frédéric COUPPEY CEO of Chambrelan
A CAD Library for better visibility and anticipating customer needs

The implementation time was exactly the same as what had been previously announced. We had set priorities for the initial parts, in this case about thirty products offered in 5 sizes. Beyond mastering the deadlines, we appreciated the great reliability of the models that were generated.

Jean-Paul Coron, CEO of Kinetic Systems
Mecalectro extends its reputation and its international customer base thanks to TraceParts

We weren’t able to provide our 3D models in all the formats being requested. We therefore approached TraceParts, which already had a good reputation among our customers.
