CAD models for Stauff Connect

New tube connector range added to online database

Stauff has successfully completed the expansion of its own CAD online database with components from the Stauff Connect product range.

In addition to the data already provided for other product groups, users have direct and unlimited access to 3D models and 2D drawings of more than 2,800 different tube connectors and accessory parts at www.stauff.com/cad. Registration is free and provides immediate access without any time delay. The entire relevant STAUFF Connect catalogue range is now available, containing 24° cutting ring fittings, 24° taper fittings with O-rings, 37° flare fittings, hydraulic valves, blanking plugs as well as thread reducers.

The files provided are native CAD formats which are compatible with all common design and engineering software (e.g. SolidWorks, Catia, Pro/E, Inventor, AutoCAD); most neutral data formats (e.g. DWG, DXF, IGES, STEP) are also supported. An animated live preview on the page itself makes it easy to select the correct parts.

“Plug and play” in the design and procurement process

For designers, this eliminates not only the complicated measuring and drawing of components, but also the import of third-party formats that are not fully compatible with the individual requirements. The special feature of this STAUFF service: The database contains only components in the final assembly state – i.e. with fitting body, sealings, cutting rings and union nuts in their correct positions to each other – while all individual parts can be hidden in the CAD program as required. That saves valuable time and costs during the development process, for example when individual elements have to be replaced or integrated with other components.

Each CAD model is also permanently linked with a reference to the manufacturer (Stauff) and the corresponding order ID which can simply be transferred into the parts list of the designed system and then easily communicated to the purchasing department. Requests for information and prices can of course also be sent directly to the manufacturer at www.stauff.com/cad.

Stauff offers this service not only for tube connectors and accessories but also for an increasing part of its product range: On www.stauff.com/cad, design engineers already have access to CAD models of e.g. pie, tube and hose clamps, test couplings, filter housings, pressure gauges and other tank and container accessories. The best prerequisite for the design of hydraulic lines and systems with components from only one manufacturer.
