Proprietary software lets company optimize flexible shafts

PerflexiIon proprietary software can optimize the performance attributes of any flexible rotary shaft, exceeding those required by current customer specifications. The software lets design engineers statistically capture and balance properties including torsion strength, bending flexibility, torsion deflection, and point of helix. Users can thus calculate the optimal shaft design without a compromise in device performance. Such calculations are critical in designing the maximum performance of highly engineered components in aircraft thrust reversers and high-lift flap and slat actuation systems.
