"Build Your Own" Caster Configurator 2.0 Released

ALBION, Mich., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Caster Concepts Custom Configurator has been a popular tool for engineers and CAD designers who need to be absolutely certain that they have the optimal caster for their application.

Based upon feedback from the clients who have used this powerful tool, we are happy to introduce the Caster Configurator 2.0, which contains a multitude of enhancements that we feel will make the task of designing custom casters even more efficient:

  • Though you could always download caster models, you can now download all of our wheel styles as well. 
  • A new parametric search tool ensures you'll always find the exact model you want.
  • We've added easy-to-use sliders and tabs to enhance navigation throughout the Configurator. This means that you'll be able to see all available options based on series/capacity/diameter/width.
  • We've improved the overall search function so you can easily find our entire inventory of casters and wheels.

These features, combined with the ability to download your designs in over 150 CAD formats and an interactive caster design menu, are unique in the material handling industry. Additionally, designers can connect to our applications experts immediately through online chat, phone or email at any time during the design cycle to get additional application specific support.

"The 'Build Your Own' Custom Caster Configurator simplifies the caster design process for designers," states Bill Dobbins, President, Caster Concepts. "We are giving everyone from engineers to purchasing managers the ability to design and create. Customer feedback on the configurator has been positive, simplifying the customization of caster models."

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening.

However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
