Toby Integrates Samtec Product Configurator Tool

Samtec Config pIc

A huge part of Toby’s 35 years of success, has been our dedication to customer service and technical design assistance. As Samtec’s longest serving independent European distributor, Toby has become the UK’s go-to design and buy resource for Samtec products. Getting the right Samtec part for our customers application is absolutely at the forefront of what we do.

Our latest web update brings together Toby’s unrivalled product knowledge and Samtec’s powerful Configurator tool to Toby’s online customers.

Design and buy with Toby

The Configurator design tool allows customers to quickly modify the pin count, lead style, plating, packaging and much more, to obtain the ideal solution for their application. As each parameter within the tool is modified, the resulting 3D image can be refreshed within the configurator frame. Any changes will display the applicable Samtec part number for the selected parameters. They can then immediately download a 2D or 3D model of the configured part in the file format of their choice. Toby’s customers can then check stock and pricing for their designed product and buy online at

Why not try the product configurator out? Here’s a link to Samtec’s Micro Rugged TFM series follow the link then click the Product Configurator button to get started.

If you configure a part that Toby don’t have listed, an enquire button sends a request for price and delivery information. Once you’re happy, the configured part can then be added to for purchase on the same day in most cases. With short lead times and low or no MOQ there really is only one place to design and buy your Samtec interconnection products.

Reducing time to prototype

This new online functionality for Toby’s customers, reduces engineers and designers prototype hours considerably, helping our customers work more quickly and efficiently. Samtec’s innovative tool provides access to over 1.5 trillion product variations and because the modified product is not “custom” designed, customers taking advantage of this new tool are not exposed to extended lead times, or inhibitive “custom” prices. Once the product is adjusted, the final version of the product can be downloaded in 150 potential file formats including STEP, SolidWorks, Autodesk and PDF file.

Bringing Toby’s expertise in Samtec products and the powerful configurator design tool together in one place, is something we are extremely excited about. Toby is the first independent distributor in the world to integrate the configurator tool to their web site. This is a realisation of our long-standing dedication to providing exceptional customer service for Samtec products in the UK and beyond.
