Romax Technology’s Concept design software package is intended to increase speed, quality, creativity, and innovation when designing gearboxes and drivelines. Called Concept, the new product delivers on the Romax vision of streamlining the end-to-end planning to manufacture process with open, easy-to-use software solutions. A highly intuitive drag-and-drop design environment, Concept enables rapid creation of concept models, claims the company. It provides semi-automated sizing, definition and rating of gears, shafts and bearings, with advanced 3-D visualization capability that allows evaluation and manipulation of key parameters. As a result, it promotes creativity as new design ideas can be evaluated rapidly. Concept also promotes a seamless workflow either as a stand-alone solution or used in conjunction with other CAD packages. It also uses Romax’s analytical capabilities to enable initial NVH assessments, as well as preliminary mechanical design assessments of alternative concepts.
