Thomas Enterprise Solutions today announced a new partnership with Amphenol Aerospace to help the company improve efficiencies and grow sales both through distributor and direct sales channels.
Amphenol Aerospace is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of interconnect products for the military, commercial aerospace and industrial markets. Engineers around the globe rely on the company’s connectors and interconnect systems including: cylindrical and rectangular, electronic, fiber optic, EMI/EMP filter, and a variety of special applications connectors. Operating from its 675,000 square foot facility in Sidney, NY, Amphenol employs about 1,000 people, incorporating state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies including CNC machining, die-casting, molding, impact and extruding, plating, screw machining and process controls.
“Our customers will soon be able to get part number and detailed specs that are vital to their projects,” said Chris Cappello, Amphenol’s Marketing Manager. “Thomas was the logical choice for us because of their technological capabilities and deep understanding and expertise of the manufacturing community,” he added.
Thomas’ Enterprise Solutions team are working closely with Amphenol’s team to centralize information about its parts and products, including detailed technical specifications and build a library of 2D-3/D CAD models and drawings for thousands of Amphenol parts. These images can then be downloaded by prospects and customers directly from Amphenol Aerospace’s website.
In addition, a new part Configurator will allow engineers to plug in their specific design specs and generate a 2/D-3/D CAD model instantly for insertion into their project. “We saw this as a way to utilize technology that has huge business implications,” said Mr. Cappello. “Having the ability to generate a drawing on the fly will ultimately save us thousands of hours in engineering time to produce these drawings. Our customers will be able to download CAD models for insertion into their own designs to ensure an exact fit, and make purchasing decisions with more confidence. This improves efficiencies for Amphenol, and speeds sales and service,” he added.
