You are working on a new design and want to incorporate the sealing system directly – in 3D including a design space proposal? In Parker Prädifa´s CAD library, 3D step files are available for you to download.
CAD models as 3D Step files for numerous standard products are available on our product pages at www.parker.com/praedifa (or via the “CAD Library” quick link).
This makes it possible for design engineers to import Parker Prädifa seals and the matching design spaces as models directly into CAD designs for a full representation of the system. The CAD bill of materials then automatically includes the seal’s part number. This creates greater transparency and allows the parts to be traced in the system.
As a special benefit the sketch of the design space proposed by Parker Prädifa for the selected profile already exists in the model. This precludes the risk of mistakes in dimensioning the design space and further facilitates the concept design of the total system for the design engineer.
