MSC Software offers an updated version of Adams/Machinery software, a customized analysis software package incorporated in the Adams/View environment that allows users to design and build virtual prototypes from common machinery components. Suitable for heavy-duty industries, the 2013.2 release helps predict performance and visualize results, while built-in wizards reduce modeling time up to 80%. Users can build functional virtual prototypes from common machinery components such as gears, bearings, pulley-belts, sprocket-chains, and cables. A new electric motor module can be used to design motors for wipers, power steering, and auto-door mechanisms, enabling users to calculate sizing, predict impact of motor torque on a system, conduct position control, and provide a realistic drive signal for machine components. Other features include additional gear types for larger trucks and improved 3-D methods.
