...with powerful Mechanism Design Simulation and Analysis

MechDesigner can design, analyze, simulate, and optimize nearly all mechanism types that you find in multi-axis production machines. MechDesigner has been developed for these types of machines and applications:

  • Packaging and Packing Machines
  • Textile Machines
  • Assembly Machines
  • Product Design
  • Multi-link mechanisms for furniture design
  • Transfer Pick and Place Mechanisms
  • SCARA Robots, Pick and Place Robots
  • Transfer Presses

With MechDesigner, you get all of these capabilities:

  • Design simulation - watch the machine cycling at realistic, and machine-like speeds.
  • Kinematic Analysis - measure and plot, for a complete machine cycle, linear and angular position, velocity, and acceleration of any moving part relative to any other moving part.
  • Force Analysis - measure and plot for a complete machine cycle, the action/reaction forces at all joints, so you can size bearings, gears, pulleys, racks, cams, ...
  • Drive Torques - plot torque vs speed curves to size servo-motors and gearboxes; select from a massive database of servomotors and gearboxes
  • Mechanisms that are always synchronized with a machine-angle - just set the machine speed.
  • Optimization tools to really get the best from your cam, mechanism and motion design.
  • Just press 'play' at any stage as you add each model
  • Increment, or jog, the machine simulation with tiny machine steps, to really scrutinize all of the mechanism and the tooling interactions.
  • Inverse-kinematics or forward kinematics: design the motion at the tooling or at the input to the mechanism
  • MotionDesigner - the world-beating motion-design application you get with MechDesigner.
  • and much more.

Mechanism Design Software

Mechanism Design Software must be able to design mechanisms as well as Cam Design and Motion Design. You can design any mechanism, which may include only parts and joints, but you can easily add servos, cams, gears [simple gears, racks, bevels], belts with pulleys, all with complex motions. There might be one input or many. The mechanism design can be planar or spatial. You can design all of the mechanisms in a machine at the same time so that you can see all of the important mechanism interactions. You can even add the packaging to the model and design it as a mechanism.

MotionDesigner: Motion Design for Machines and Mechanisms

Motion Design is integrated with MechDesigner as a standalone tool - which we call it MotionDeisgner. MotionDesigner is a powerful motion design editor. You can edit and simultaneously update the motions to the mechanism design and cam design in your MechDesigner model - on-the-fly. In this way, you can scrutinize your motion design as a graph in MotionDesigner, and simultaneously scrutinize the same motion moving in your MechDesigner model of your machine.

Kinematics Analysis and Simulation Software

Kinematic Analysis and Simulation is a key strength of MechDesigner Software. You can design, any mechanism using Inverse-Kinematics or Forward-Kinematics. MechDesigner has fast, closed-form algorithms, you will be amazed at how quickly you can innovate and watch a simulation cycling at machine-like speeds. Start your free 30-day trial today.
