GearTrax provides the designer with an easy to use tool for creating solid models of drive components. Create spur, helical, straight bevel and involute splines with true involute tooth profiles.
GearTrax is intuitively easy to use for the designer with limited gear experience yet powerful enough for the gear expert. The animation window shows the spur/helical gear mesh which updates as the data is changed. It is extremely useful in understanding how changes to the gear parameters reflects on the gear mesh.
GearTrax is more than a library program. Each part model is created with it's specific requirements just as a designer would, but rather than taking hours or days, the part is created in seconds. GearTrax creates solid models of spur and helical gears, bevel gears, worm gears, involute splines, timing belt pulleys, chain sprockets and V-belt pulleys. GearTrax also integrates with Excel to create data sheets.
CamTrax helps the designer create solid models of virtually every type of cam with the dynamic motion control parameters your system requires. During the design, CamTraxâ„˘ generates charts when linked with Excel and adds a profile list to your drawing. Camnetics, Inc. is dedicated to providing the design engineer with accessible software for developing high speed machine cams!
CamTrax standard cam types include cylindrical cams, plate (aka disk) cams and linear cams. Choose the follower type that the design requires; on center translating, off center translating, swinging arm and flat-faced reciprocating. Selecting different motion synthesis is a snap with CamTrax. Choose between virtually any standard cam motion with a couple mouse clicks. With Excel the designer can analyze the cam motions and compare different motion synthesis. Don't have Excel? Output can also be to a text file! Charted are displacement, velocity, acceleration, pressure angle, cam shaft torque, radius of curvature, contact stress and normal force.
