Automate Graphite Purchasing

Ohio Carbon Blank has introduced the GraphimatorEZ, a new web-based technology for automating graphite purchasing. "The new technology provides a streamlined approach for graphite procurement that eliminates errors and ensures faster deliveries," said a company spokesperson.

"Customers sometimes make keyboarding entry errors when manually entering graphite data into online quoting and purchasing systems, and oftentimes the hand-off of graphite data between design and purchasing causes delays that are critical to mold build time," explained Dale McCartney, General Manager, Ohio Carbon Blank.

The three-step automation process includes:

1) Extract CAD data (X,Y,Z) from mold dies as an Excel file

2) Import Excel file of CAD data into the GraphimatorEZ for instant pricing

3) Export pricing data for online ordering or purchase order completion.

"We are currently developing CAD output templates for six CAD/CAM companies including SolidWorks, VISI, Mastercam, CAM-Tool, UG and Pro-E. We are also in the process of building an API that exports pricing data from the GraphimatorEZ directly into major business software such as QuickBooks and Peachtree," said McCartney.
