The “do-it-yourself” trend continues: whether sanding parquet floors, gardening, tiling, building furniture or painting and decorating, for years now anyone who can hold a pair of pliers or a paintbrush has been pottering and tinkering about. Every do-it-yourself store offers instructions and meanwhile even seminars. Do-it-yourself is in! The latest fashion: handicraft seminars for women. Do-it-yourself stores are receiving hundreds of applications, and the interest is enormous. Men and women are working like mad on do-it-yourself projects. And if it functions so well in private life, it can’t be bad in business life either. So why not configure a suitable coupling yourself?
R+W is keeping pace with the times. With our extended CAD templates you cannot build our own coupling, but you can draw it or have it created as a virtual 3D model. If you are looking for a safety coupling for your application, then simply visit the R+W homepage, and in the “Service” section click “CAD Downloads“. You can then choose from our product groups. Here you can click Safety Couplings (SK), for example, and then perhaps select the variant SK 1. You then have the option of entering the dimensions you need. The data can be output for different CAD systems, as a PDF file or in various image formats. With only a few clicks, you then have true-to-scale drawings and models in various formats from different perspectives – it couldn’t be simpler or faster. And you did it all yourself!
You can also see chic images in our R+W app, which can now also be downloaded for Android devices from Google Play. With the help of an augmented reality application, you can now view our couplings in 3D animations, among other things. For this you only need our current product brochure and the app – and then you can see the couplings rotating, breaking down into their individual component parts and revealing their data as well as other information and films. And after you have gained a general idea with the app, you can use our extended CAD tool in the Internet for your detailed and individual planning. But don’t worry: you don’t have to do everything yourself. Our staff will still be pleased to help you, and despite all of the do-it-yourself offers, they will still help you to find the right coupling, for not only are we masters of our trade, we also offer you service – because sometimes the expert is the better choice after all.
By the way, experts also met at the METEC in Düsseldorf. This international trade fair for metallurgy is on the road to success. 64 percent of the exhibiting countries came from abroad, led by China, Italy, the USA and India. They took advantage of the outstanding opportunities to exchange views, supported by a wide range of fringe events. The R+W staff on the exhibition stand also welcomed numerous guests and were pleased to make interesting contacts. Here we should like to thank all of our visitors!
