Engineers configuring hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders can now download customized 2D drawings and 3D models from the Web site of Peninsular Cylinders Co., Roseville, Mich. The firm’s online configurator lets users customize standard products to handle special applications. The configurator, devised by PartSolutions, a firm that provides digital-catalog technologies and services, let designers get custom-configured parts in a wide range of multi-CAD and multiversion 2D and 3D CAD-native formats.

“The whole system makes ordering easier because our customers can answer simple questions, thus eliminating the need for confusing cylinder catalogs and complex engineering data,” says Peninsular Cylinder President Brent Paterson.
