Glenair connect with innovation by offering its interconnect solutions in 3D on the platform

Saint-Romain, France – October 3, 2019 – Glenair, an expert in manufacturing high-performance connectors and cable accessories for the harshest environments, has chosen TraceParts as its service provider for publishing its product data in 3D.  

A wide range of electronic components is now available on the TraceParts CAD content platform. Engineers and designers working in the aviation, aerospace, military, rail, marine and offshore industries can now preview and download the CAD models of Glenair’s products in over 60 formats.  

The management team at Glenair, based their decision on the following observation:

Sales channels are changing and becoming increasingly digital. Our customers require that they need before agreeing to a more traditional face-to-face meeting. We have noticed that the growing segments in our target market are more comfortable with a digital experience at the start of the sales cycle.

The element that tipped Glenair’s decision was the ability to quickly make its products available on the web for engineers and designers in order to offer its customers an ideal user experience

Publishing the CAD models of its products on the TraceParts platform ensures that the company’s solutions can be selected as early as the design phase of new applications and equipment. The interconnect expert can then analyze the different data relating to its product catalogue for the purpose of building dialog between its sales forces and the engineers / designers later in their design process

Glenair has chosen to publish its products on the TraceParts platform with the Smart-Publishing solution. This online data creation method allows parts suppliers to independently manage their 3D catalog 24 hours a day, seven days a week

This is what the Glenair marketing team had to say about using the Smart-Publishing method:

The support that we received was top class and, as with any new process, once you’ve got past the learning curve, the experience is quick and effective.

Glenair has also chosen to incorporate the TraceParts service for downloading and viewing CAD files in 3D directly on its website.
