We make componentry used in complex tools and special machines. With over 10,000 standard part numbers and the ability to make custom components as well, we can generally accommodate any special size or configuration a customer might have. All told, we’ve made and shipped nearly 3 million items. We’re well known in the industry for our excellent customer service. And as for quality, ten consecutive zero non-conformance ISO 9001 audits speak for themselves.
Tooling Software Technology (TST) have teamed up to incorporate all of
SelfLube’s 10,000+ components into the VISI CAD component library. VISI users will now be able to use VISI’s
powerful “Builder” tool to select component types and sizes and quickly insert
them into the model that they are working on. The required mounting holes,
fasters and optional pocket are also inserted along with entries in the bill of
material – all with just a few clicks.
If the size isn’t quite right, the user can go back to Builder menu and click on a different size. Everything then changes to that new size: the component, mounting holes, fasteners, pocket and bill of material entries.
“This is about providing greater value to our customers,” says Owner, Phil Allor. “It eliminates busy work that would otherwise be performed by a very key person, the tool designer. This frees up time for designers to do what they do best, design great tools.”
The roll out of
this will be phased. The first group of
components is available now. More will be added every few weeks through the end
of the year. All SelfLube components
will be in the VISI library by mid January.
