Calculate on the Best

WITTENSTEIN alpha’s engineers 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 (application + transformation + gearbox + motor) can now be sized and designed quicker, more easily and more reliably than ever before. Its calculations are considerably simplified by predefined standard applications. Optimally sized and more efficient motors are achieved by abstracting all important influencing factors.

  • 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 gearbox 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 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.
