Careful design benefits customers with ease of navigation and helpful technical content
Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, announces a brand-new product catalog, which incorporates Allied’s comprehensive range of holemaking products into one feature-packed book. With stunning new images and a design that pays careful attention to helping customers select the right tools, the new catalog showcases all the drilling, boring, reaming, burnishing and threading tools in one location. Catalog navigation has been carefully thought out to benefit customers. A wealth of technical details about product sizes, setup tips, and application guidelines make this catalog a valuable all-around educational resource.
The new catalog is extremely easy to navigate, ultimately saving customers time and money. Sections are organized in the order in which manufacturing processes would typically be performed. Drilling tools are highlighted first, followed by boring and reaming, burnishing, and then thread milling options. The final product section details Allied’s vast special tooling capabilities. It includes detailed industry-specific case studies of customers who have benefitted from special tooling developed by Allied. These case studies include quantifiable data that demonstrates how each tool reduced scrap and/or increased tool life compared to the competition.
To further assist with tool selection, products in each section are arranged in ascending order by diameter. Section indicators next to page numbers help customers distinguish which section they are viewing. A comprehensive index helps customers quickly find items by product number. The catalog also includes a product selection guide to help customers quickly decide which tool to use per their specific application.
Product imagery has been completely revamped, with new high-resolution images of each product within a product line. New product renderings and line drawings show extremely clear and accurate product detail.
Also added is a wealth of technical information on each product, including features, advantages and assembly instructions. This section includes helpful explanations of each tool’s performance, application recommendations, set-up and adjustment instructions and tips, available options, and suggestions for which styles should be used in certain situations. Tool recommendation guides provide overviews of each product line including material recommendations so users can quickly and easily find the best solution for their applications.
While the new catalog includes information on the vast majority of Allied’s offerings, a few standalone catalogs remain, including the Wohlhaupter boring system solutions and Eco-Cut lathe tools.
