GPS Release 3.0

Release 3.0 contains a new module for the conception of planetary gear drives. This tool allows the concept design of a gearbox including components such as clutches, connections and multiple power inputs and outputs. The resulting power flows can be tested for various load levels. It also contains a new module for the design and rating of planetary gear systems. This tool can also calculate for multiple load cases.

ASME, Las Vegas

Dontyne attends American Society of Mechanical Engineers Conference in Las Vegas as our reputation spreads across the Atlantic.

GPS Release 1.0

Dontyne releases a gear sizing and optimising design tool for spur and helical gears.

DUGATES development transferred from Design Unit to Dontyne

The Design Unit and Dontyne are collaborating on the continued development of the DUGATES program. This FE program has been extensively validated and used by Design Unit to optimise contact conditions, minimise Transmission Error (and hence noise) and establish robust and error tolerant designs in many applications in the last 15 years.
