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

We would like you to try the software for yourselves. We would be glad to send you a link to install a test version . With this it is possible to activate a test licence valid for 30 days.

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.
