Romax Technology has issued the first service pack for its latest RomaxDesigner R12.6 software.
The interim release contains two new modules as well as updates and extensions to existing modules. The first of the two new modules introduced in the service pack is a new advanced spherical roller bearing module that takes into consideration the profiling effect of the bearing rollers and raceways. The second is a new gearbox efficiency module that includes features such as gear drag used to determine the power losses from individual gears. The implementation of gear mesh alignment contribution is another new feature that allows the contribution of shafts, bearings, gears and housing to the overall misalignment of a gear mesh to be reported. An analysis setting "Use gear mesh rotation mismesh analysis" has also been added to allow gears to be rotated on their mounting shaft away from their nominal calculated rotations and take into account gear initial rotation errors.
