Nook Industries Offers Downloadable CAD Drawings

A new e-catalog from Nook Industries (Cleveland) allows users to download, configure, and view 2-D and 3-D drawings of the company's jacks using their own CAD software. "This is an exciting technological approach that allows engineers to easily integrate Nook components into their own design within minutes of configuration," says vice president of sales and marketing Christopher Nook. "It speeds up the design process, which in the end saves money," he adds.

Users must register with the site to download CAD files. Once registered, they can configure a jack by specifying a motor adapter, right-angle reducer, bellows boots, and limit switch accessories. After configuration, complete CAD drawings of the assemblies are generated and can be viewed with zoom, pan, and rotate capabilities. The drawings are compatible with AutoCAD, Pro/Engineer, Catia, Solid Works, CADKey 3D, Solid Edge, Vellum Draft, Autodesk Inventor, and Mechanical Desktop software.

Currently, CAD downloads are only available for the company's ActionJac line of worm-gear screw jacks, but the company hopes to expand the catalog to include ActionJac electric cylinders and additional products in the first quarter of this year.
