Samtec, a leading manufacturer in the electronic interconnect industry, has called on TraceParts to put its catalog of 3D CAD models online

Saint-Romain – France, February 13, 2019 – Samtec, a global manufacturer of connectors, cables, optics and RF systems, and TraceParts have announced the publication of 850,000 electronic components on the site. Designers and engineers can now configure, preview and download a wide range of high-speed board-to-board components, micro pitch board-to-board connectors, rugged/power connectors, high-speed card systems and standard board-to-board connectors.

Samtec, a manufacturer of electronic interconnect solutions, has been digitizing its products for over 10 years to provide its customers with CAD content. Requests for CAD models used to be managed one by one at the customer’s request. When demand went through the roof, technical and financial reasons prompted Samtec to look for a long-term solution.

The point that tipped Samtec’s choice in favor of the TraceParts solution was to possess the 3D models for its products and manage distribution through physical access to the files. That is ultimately what allows Samtec to legally and freely reuse its 3D models in neutral or native CAD format among its distributors or end customers.

With TraceParts, we have reached out to users that were previously out of range, because the solutions we had implemented internally had exceeded our ability to manage demand for CAD models. This new service was up and running in no time thanks to the modeling team, which handled the digital design process.

We also make extensive use of TraceParts Analytics to analyze our catalog’s performance and thereby gain an insight into our customers and what they need. Understanding all of that has given us the keys to adapting our game plan to suit our constantly changing industry,

explains Daniel Williams, Digital Marketing Director at Samtec.


Samtec is an industry leader and there’s a good reason why. It’s a mature company that long ago realized the importance of providing CAD models of its products online. We are proud to count Samtec in our 700-strong customer pool,

concludes Gabriel Guigue, Managing Director of TraceParts.
