PSMotion Ltd is the developer of the world-leading machine design software - MechDesigner - the best software for cam, mechanism, and motion design of multi-axis machines. You can use MechDesigner to build, with confidence, the best possible packaging, assembly, and textile machines.

You can download a fully-loaded 14-day trial to get started today. In the longer term, you can decide which tools best suit your design requirements, and we can update your installed software copy to suit, hassle-free to you (and us!).

You can also engage us at any stage of your machine design to quickly build your models, and, additionally, use all of our Motion-Design and Cam-Design expertise to give you the best possible machine performance within your design constraints.

In addition to buying MechDesigner, We offer:

  • Training - Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Level to get the most from MechDesigner
  • Model Creation - we prepare models for you in a way that makes it easy for you to optimize the design for your product specifications
  • Design Optimization - we prepare models for a new or existing design AND we optimize the design to give the best-possible machine performance
  • Design Consultancy - we offer clean-sheet design options for an existing design problem or specification

You can also choose to engage us at any stage of your machine design, by using MechDesigner, or bespoke design and consultancy services.

    Beat the competition with a design that will operate faster, jam less, and with reduced maintenance.

    MechDesigner for:

    • Cam, Mechanism and Motion Design Software - model complex interacting mechanisms.
    • To analyze all kinematic and force parameters of all mechanism parts, including all cam analysis parameters, over complete operating cycles.
    • To scrutinize the motion interactions between tooling and product or packaging.
    • To show your machine model cycling with all axes, synchronized to a single axis.

    You can edit, update, and instantly observe changes, as the model continuously cycles, synchronized to a machine 'clock'.  This working environment allows you to design a machine with optimal operating performance.

    Analyze

    As you edit a motion, mechanism, or cam parameter, our software instantly updates all related parameters for real-time analysis. You can continually review all of the important design parameters.

    Scrutinize

    You can, as you optimize each design parameter:

    • Play: to watch the model cycle over and over again
    • Micro-inch: tiny steps to focus on the critical phases of the machine-cycle
    • Jog [step]: fixed number-of-degrees, at an angle of your choice.
    • Jump: enter a 'go-to' machine angle
    • Drag: backwards and forwards to review the machine interactions over and over again.

    Optimize

    Optimizing is the art of compromise.

    MechDesigner allows you to optimize your machine before manufacture. In addition to making sure parts do not collide[!], you must make sure velocities, accelerations, pressure-angles, cam contact-stresses, bearing loads, motor torques, and all other important design variables and criteria, are reviewed over a complete machine-cycle.

    Use any number of graphs to simultaneously analyse all machine design criteria and performance characteristics.

    For example, you might see how if you edit the model to reduce a contact-stress on one cam at one point in the machine cycle might also increase it on different cam at a different point in the machine-cycle.

    When the machine model is running as you want, you can export all data for cam manufacture, in a number of formats.
