Conveyor Components Catalog

System Plast has introduced an interactive printed conveyor components catalog with an online mirror edition for researching/selecting components, loading a shopping cart, developing a bill of materials, accessing drawings/technical data, specifying popular or related components and finding distributors.

A QR code on the front cover of the 400-page printed SmartGuide opens the mirror site where the printed version's icons, product images, logos and lists become links. Color-coded sections keyed to 12 product groups, with a list of bookmarks to those groups at the top of every page, allow navigation in print or online. Component-specific pages include links to related or alternative items. Clicking on a product code allows download of CAD drawings or building a bill of material for RFQ. The SmartGuide is compatible with PCs, tablets and smartphones.

"The SmartGuide has been developed and structured by engineers, for engineers, to follow the decision-making logic used in conveyor system design," said Matt Stoneburner, Director of Marketing at Emerson Power Transmission Solutions. "We consolidated information from many sources and organized it to fit the decision tree used by engineers, then cataloged it in a way that functions well in both printed or interactive forms. It allows a user to go from general information, to specifics, to individual SKU pages, exactly how engineers would, complete with supporting technical information and calculation tools in one location."

An integrated search function on the site responds to part descriptions or page codes that are boldly listed on each page and used in prompts that suggest alternative or related products. An interactive table of contents is on the top of each page or in a pane that can be hidden. A list of 24 exclusive online support documents can be accessed from an "i" link in the upper right corner of nearly every product page of the catalog. In addition to documents on design guidelines, material characteristics, chemical resistance and construction details, the info link gives access to System Plast's SPEC load and strength calculator and energy savings calculator.
