Emerson: Interactive conveyor components catalog
See it at PACK EXPO Las Vegas Booth #C-4733! The new SmartGuide conveyor components catalog from Emerson and System Plast is said to be the material handling industry's first interactive mirror edition for specifying and ordering conveyor components.
The "interactive" printed conveyor components catalog has 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 fast 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.
