COE logoSaint Romain (France) – March 14, 2005 – TraceParts will be offering 30-day evaluation licenses of its parts library seamlessly integrated to CATIA V5 at the COE 2005 Annual PLM Conference & TechniFair (booth #316), taking place March 20-23, in Phoenix, Arizona.
TraceParts was the first Parts Library to join the DASSAULT SYSTEMES’ Software Community Program (SCP) as a Partner in October 2001. Through this development partnership TraceParts is still the only CAA V5 Partner to complement native parts catalogs by delivering to CATIA V5 users more than 25 million parts directly accessible from DS 3D PLM solutions. TraceParts’ commitment to CATIA customers and business partners is also being reinforced through this 3rd participation to the COE Technifair.


TraceParts for CATIA Interface - Aerospace standards


TraceParts leverages the V5 architecture to develop an extensive library of international standard CATIA-native 3D parts. Customers from all industries, and especially Industrial Machinery, Tooling, Automotive and Aerospace will benefit from all the most commonly used components in mechanical design from the largest names of the mechanical industry: Asco Joucomatic Numatics, BOSCH, BOUTET, CHAMBRELAN, CSR, ENOMAX, GENUSTECH, HERVIEU, HP SYSTEMS, INA, KV, LEGRIS, NSK, PARKER, PARVEX, PAULSTRA, QUIRI, RABOURDIN, RÖMHELD, SIAM-RINGSPANN, SKF, SNR, SPEEDY BLOCK, SUMER, TELEMECANIQUE, …
