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 gearbox during the design phase. You profit from more efficiency and reliability. Downsizing potential is identified to help reduce the cost, and your gearbox 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. If you are interested in either cymex® 5 or product training courses, please contact your responsible sales engineer or send an e-mail to:
