Online Configurator for Hob Blanks

Online configurator for individual hob blanks from Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT

Hob blanks from Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT

The CERATIZIT Group offers a new online configurator for individual hob blanks from Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT. With the intuitive configurator, which includes an automated ordering feature, customers can with just a few clicks configure and order carbide hob blanks from the E-Techstore online shop. As finished tools they can then be used for the interconnection of a variety of components.

Speed and Flexibility

The new configurator offers customers total flexibility and speed when ordering. It designs the most suitable blank for any application in a fully automated way, and generates an offer according to the customer's terms and conditions. Due to the memory function of the configurator the order can be placed either immediately or at a later time.

The automated ordering process benefits the customer in other ways as well, as Product Manager Manuel Bergmann explained, "Our new configurator is typical of future-oriented digitalization projects, in that it creates capacity by freeing our employees from repetitive logical processes. Thus resources are made available in areas where creative intelligence is needed. This gives CERATIZIT the chance and the ability to continue improving its hob production and developing services like the configurator."

Intuitive Operation

The configurator tool is user friendly. The customer only has to enter the finished dimensions of the hob wanted to receive an instant offer for a suitable blank. Two-D visualization, displaying the dimensions submitted, enables customers to check the data and compare it with their original enquiry.

Automation Up To and Including Production

Automation does not stop there. After the order has been placed, the software automatically prepares the routing, the bill of materials and a 3-D model including a 2-D drawing of the blank. Due to this networking, production of the individual blank can start just a few moments after the order has been submitted.

On request, customers can be sent the 3-D model (STEP) and 2-D drawing (PDF). In this way the drawing can be approved in short order and the product is already defined in the customer's CAD data, from the blank right through to the finished article.
