Thermal Transfer Products’ new tool, built by CADENAS PARTsolutions, enables engineers to quickly get the information they need

CINCINNATI and RACINE, Wis.—In an effort to streamline the specification process for fluid power engineers, Thermal Transfer Products (TTP) recently partnered with CADENAS PARTsolutions to launch a new 3D configuration tool for industrial heat exchangers.

According to a release from CADENAS PARTsolutions, the new online tool is a key component of TTP’s “mission to be the easiest fluid power manufacturer to work with.” It is said to deliver on-demand access to product configuration, CAD models, and PDF datasheets, enabling engineers to quickly get the information they need to do their jobs efficiently.

Tim McDonald, vice president of sales for Thermal Transfer Products, said the company’s end goal can be summed up this way: “Size it. Price it. Draw it. That’s what this is all about.” The company’s vision is to combine its digital tools in a one-stop shop approach for product selection, engineering data/drawings, and quoting to the market.

“Ease of doing business is central to our digital strategy,” McDonald continued. “We want to make it so easy to work with us that we are the default choice for anyone looking to specify a heat exchanger.”

Thermal Transfer Products manufactures pre-engineered and custom heat exchangers for use in a wide variety of industries, for both stationary and mobile applications. “Our products can be found anywhere you see a hydraulic application, such as factory machinery or off-highway applications,” McDonald said.

According to the release, TTP has provided design assistance in the past, but was sometimes challenged by resources and available CAD data. The 3D product configurator is said to deliver CAD models in more than 150 native and neutral formats.

“Engineers would call or email our engineering department to get a CAD model for their application, usually with a 24-hour turnaround,” said Ron Szarzynski, product manager at TTP, in the release. “The process could take longer if the customer needed data for a legacy product, which would need to be redrawn into a modern 3D format.

“Our new configuration tool replaces that process. The end user can build the exact product for their application online by selecting the features they need. When they’re happy with the configuration, they can download it instantly in the format of their choice.”
