Online configurator for hob blanks

September 25, 2017


The online configurator for individual hob blanks from Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT includes an automated ordering feature, so customers will need just a few clicks to configure and order carbide hob blanks from the E-Techstore online shop.

The configurator lets customers design the most suitable blank for any application in a fully automated way, and generates an offer according to the customer’s terms and conditions. Thanks to the memory function of the configurator, the order can be placed either immediately or later.

The customer enters the finished dimensions of the hob he wants to receive an instant offer for a suitable blank. A 2D visualization, displaying the dimensions submitted, enables customers to check the data and compare it with their original enquiry.

After the order has been placed, the software automatically prepares the routing, the bill of materials, and a 3D model including a 2D drawing of the blank. Thanks to networking, production of the individual blank can start just a few moments after the order has been submitted.

On request, customers can be sent the 3D model (STEP) and 2D drawing (PDF). In this way, the drawing can be approved quickly and the product is already defined in the customer’s CAD data, from the blank right through to the finished article.
