Cincinnati and USA Tour sets foundation for IMTS

David and I would like to thank our sales in US for looking after us during the tour earlier this month. Thanks to Rich and his family for hosting the barbecue on the Sunday. The food and the company was excellent, even if the weather wasn't. Thanks to Davey for running us everywhere by car. We certainly put in some miles criss-crossing several States beginning with the park in N. Kentucky overlooking Cincinnati itself as in the photo. A great view.

During the visit we were able to complete some product training and visits to establish the start of a large customer specific development project. We even had time for drinks with some friends out of working hours in Chicago at the end of the week. We built some good foundations with companies in the manufacturing sector we will certainly enhance during the IMTS September, Chicago, 8-14 September. See us at Booth N6778


British Gear Association AGM at Morgan Motor Company

Dontyne Systems attended the British Gear Association Annual General Meeting , this year hosted by Morgan Motor Company. The meeting was followed by a factory tour. Morgan has been producing cars on the same site since 1909 potentially making it the oldest continuously used site for motor car production in the World. The Chassis of the various models have remained fairly unchanged though there are a large range of custom options available for interior and exterior to customise the cars. Underneath they boast modern power plant and gear box from German suppliers. A recent return to the 3 wheel model production produced a surprise when, while expecting around 150 orders in total, the company found they had 200 orders before going into production a couple of years back and now 1,500 on order.

Release 5.0 Available!

Thank you for your interest in Dontyne Systems.

We have been busy since we our last significant release. We now have over 100 active installations in 15 countries with more than an additional 100 test installations with improved support based in Europe, USA and Japan. From the feedback we receive the biggest selling aspect is not the price (although our products are very competitive in the market) it is the ease of use and closer integration of design with manufacture. With access to points during manufacture for machine tools and inspection equipment our software can not only design, but optimise and problem solve providing a powerful platform for product development and driving production efficiency. Many companies state the Gear Production Suite alsoworks very well alongside the larger gearbox design packages already in house providing a fast track option for certain projects or project tasks requiring fast turn around. We will be happy to show you this in an on-line demonstration.

New developments for 5.0 include:

  • bevel gear rating
  • bearing design
  • shaper cutting
  • gearbox system deflection model linked to our load analysis
  • shaft analysis for frequency and critical speed
  • remote hosting system for access to the software anywhere in the world via secure internet connection

If we don't hear from you, we would still like to keep you informed of new developments. The development scheduled for 6.0 next year includes several tools unique to Dontyne Systems. If you would like more information then please let me know.
