1 Browsing the catalog, choosing, page by page, the searched product category.
2 Going on Search Section that gives you three different searching ways. Choosing the product category from the drop-down menu on the left-hand side of the window, you get to the triple product search: By entering Gnutti Bortolo Srl code; remember that GB code are composed of 8 figures: the first 5 identify the item, the other 3 identify measurings. Therefore it's basic to put 5 or 8 numbers in the box, to let the searching engine work and find the item code.
By entering the manufacturer code: first selecting the brand from the first drop-down menu, and then the code from the second drop-down menu
By entering a keyword in the box, the search system looks for the keyword either in categories or in items descriptions and the results will split in such a way. The keyword search unfortunately does not identify plurals-singulars, synonyms and half words: it works with whole words, for this reason if you don't find what you are searching for, try with the corresponding singular-plural or synonym ones.
3 In the Search section, on the right-hand of the window there is a Special Search for cutting tools that requires specific parameters to be indetified and found, such as Taps, Inserts, Mills and Drills. If you click on one of those , you go to pages which you can select various paramenters from. When choosing the first one, the others automatically self-select, basing on what is available. Now you can: immediately view the items; select the other parameters to define your search untill you view what you're searching for. To reset the search parameters, click on Reset.
4 Besides these searching methods, from any website page, you can use the Quick Search, select the searching method you prefer from the drop-down menu, among GB code, Manufacturer code, Keyword; fill out the box and click on OK button.
The Keyword search works exactly in the same way as in the Search section (but it looks though the whole catalog), so everything said here at c.point works in the same way. This searching method is advised whenever you have a clear idea of what is your search object is for this main reason the priority was given to the speed which the results come out with, rather than any importance or alphabetical order.
If you don't know exactly what you're looking for or you would like to view other related products (accessories or substitutes), we advise you to use the other searching methods.
