  • cymex® 5 can define any number of axes at once: Time saving up to 60% when calculating variants

  • cymex® 5 has an intuitive Profiler: Customized position of windows and toolbars

  • cymex® 5 enables precise simulations of motions and loads: Beside the existing applications the software now also contains shifted crank, conveyor, center winder and feed roll.

  • cymex® 5 is international: The software is available in 11 different languages

  • cymex® 5 has a huge database: Over 14.000 motors and more than 8000 gearhead variations

cymex® 5 has a fundamentally new master-slave function

The master-slave function lets you map two electrically preloaded drives. By tensioning each other, the master and slave eliminate backlash from the drive train and increase the machine’s stiffness. Significantly higher dynamics are achieved as a result.


cymex® 5 has a unique optimizer
The complete drive train can be optimized based on the motor data. This function provides recommendations for optimizing the selected gearhead during the design phase. You profit from more efficiency and reliability. Downsizing potential is identified to help reduce the cost, and your gearhead is neither oversized nor undersized.


We offer our customers regular cymex® 5 training courses. We would welcome the opportunity to make our application calculation and drive design expertise available to you.
