Sizing software

The engineers at WITTENSTEIN alpha have fundamentally redesigned the cymex® sizing software. The result is a sizing tool that sets benchmarks in every respect. Thanks to cymex® 5, the entire drive train can now be dimensioned and designed faster, more easily and more reliably than ever before. After downloading the software, you can design optimally sized and more efficient motors by abstracting all important influencing factors. 

Detailed sizing of your machine with the cymex® 5 sizing software

WITTENSTEIN alpha GmbH presents cymex® 5, the multifunctional software that enables bespoke drive trains to be designed more reliably, economically and energy efficiently. The software features an intuitive, customizable user interface, allowing any number of alternative designs to be elaborated simultaneously. cymex® 5 has access to a regularly updated database listing around 16,000 motor variants from more than 50 different manufacturers plus more than 8000 WITTENSTEIN alpha gearboxes and 200 combinations of WITTENSTEIN linear systems. After comparing the geometry, the software derives bespoke drive configurations and automatically suggests suitable attached components. At the end of the sizing process, users can generate full calculation documentation directly, create data sheets for the gearbox and motor and display 2D or 3D CAD component data.

User friendliness, versatility, internationality, downsizing – efficiency engineering with cymex® 5

Owing to the diverse functions of the cymex® 5 sizing tool, drive trains can be engineered with unbeatable efficiency. cymex® 5 is shipped with an optional “Optimizer” that is the only one of its kind to date for sizing software. This tool identifies downsizing potential – especially in machines, axes and drive trains that have already been configured. A machine’s existing controller parameters, such as the current or voltage profile, can be read out for this purpose and imported into cymex® 5 in order to optimize the train’s energy efficiency. Furthermore, the Optimizer knows, for example, whether a smaller sized motor / gearbox unit could be used instead without compromising performance. Undersized drives can be adapted with the help of the Optimizer’s recommendations.
