University Park, Ill.—Bimba Manufacturing has debuted a new website, featuring an updated look and improved functionality. The redesign includes state-of-the-art technical features, reorganized and updated content, and rich multimedia applications.
Enhanced CAD drawing functionality and interactivity leads the suite of new features on the website, changing the way users can view and download CAD drawings. Now CAD drawings are integrated within each respective product page where a tabbed menu provides the option to download drawings, view product dimensions, materials and a 3D preview—all in one place. CAD models can also be downloaded with the mates and constraints intact, so customers don’t have to take the extra time to reconfigure this information.
“Research shows CAD accessibility has a big impact on the way design engineers choose partners, and can save them two to four hours per project,” said Scott Meldeau, Bimba’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “With that in mind, we want to make sure our CAD modeling is extremely user-friendly.”
Navigating Bimba’s extensive product breadth will also be easier with a streamlined product menu organized into five logical categories. The website utilizes accordion technology, a web control that allows users to view multiple panes and display them one at a time within the same page.
“Our goal is to enable our customers to find, size and order the products they need as easily as possible,” said Bimba Marketing Manager, Tom Wood. “This tool simplifies navigation and eliminates the need to click back and forth between pages.”
A new product category, BimbaBreakthroughs, highlights products that got their start in the Bimba Design Center, where customers submit design requests for Bimba’s expert engineers. These solutions are now available to all customers and featured in this new product section.
