Gear-Design Software Trims Trial And Error

May 11, 2006
Integrated Gear Software (IGS) assists designing metal, plastic, or powderedmetal gears.

It's a comprehensive gearknowledge system for eliminating noise and premature failure, reducing trial and error, lowering design and production costs, and cutting time to market. The software helps with initial sizing, gear design and analysis, modeling of environmental extremes, and optimization with tolerance analysis and manufacturing specs. The math engine can solve for a variety of combinations of input and output variables. This allows testing what-if scenarios, developing accurate specifications for manufacturing replacement gears, and optimizing designs without hours of tedious calculations or programming.
