Leading conveyor system designer and manufacturer mk North America has announced the official release of a new online conveyor modeling tool — CAD360! — that makes it faster and easier than ever to design and share custom designed conveyor systems.
The latest release (which replaces QuickDesigner) adds industry-leading speed to the modeling process. Users can work via the web on one page without having to navigate to multiple pages or install software. With CAD360! users simply input the target values for length, width and height, select drive location and target options, and the model is generated on demand. Users can create a single-belt conveyor or choose from a variety of predesigned conveyor-system layouts.
“CAD360! is a very powerful and complete tool for modeling and designing in all facets of a project. Engineers can design anything from simple conveyors to complex multi-module pallet handling systems,” said Todd St. Pierre, Vice President of Operations at mk North America. “In fact, this program can be used by designers, engineers, and project managers. We are very excited to offer a complete solution to support customer requirements during the design phase of their project.”
CAD360! is a comprehensive offering for designing conveyor systems using an online CAD modeling tool. It allows for 2D and 3D models to be downloaded … and the use of PDF and JPG files for easy sharing across departments and non-technical teams.
“mk’s CAD360! tool helps our team simplify and streamline the quoting and design process,” added end-user Shadi Rizk, Engineering Manager at I-C Automation, on how the new tool is being used to transform operations. “We now easily generate a 3D model in the native CAD format to incorporate in the simulations and drawings, then turn around and give it back to mk for pricing; ensuring we are getting exactly what we need when we need it.”
