Redesigned Website Offers New Gear/Gearbox Optimization Sotfware


Special introductory price of only $995! 

Excel-LentTM software from longtime builder of gears and gearboxes, quickly determines optimum product parameters for various industries; time savings in hundreds of engineering hours being realized. Excel-lent software is on sale through the website. 

 Please visit www.excel-lentsoftware.com and see a demo of how easy it is to design a new gearbox. The most interesting section to design engineers will be “Design”. With minimal input, the program will calculate the number of teeth in the pinion and gear, DP or Module, face width etc. required to transmit the power, within a few seconds. The calculated data can be exported to the “Analysis” section for complete analysis with clicking the “Transfer Data “ tab on screen.  Calculated capacity will be very close to the required power, on the very first try.

Also, the Excel-Lent software’s dimensioning program is the most versatile program available on the market. Non-standard center distance or matching a new gear to an existing gear is as easy as clicking the indicated option.  The material tables provided have all the commercially available materials listed, with heat treat and mechanical properties to allow the user to choose any gear material from the list to fit their need. 

In all three sections, sample input data are stored for the users to get started. Click on the samples opens the samples table. Clicking one of the samples fills the input screen with data. To run the sample click “Calculate”. We welcome comments and suggestions about our software at any time.

In response to the gear market’s need for optimization software, which has been lacking for many years, Excel-LentTM gear/gearbox design and analysis software has been developed by Excel Gear, Inc. (Roscoe, IL) and written in Visual Basic.Net.  This software has been written by engineers who also design and manufacture gears for their own use, according to company president N.K. “Chinn” Chinnusamy.

Mr. Chinnusamy further comments, “Although commercial software has long been available in the gear industry, it has been too expensive or too complicated to be used by engineers without specialized gear design knowledge.  Our software is specifically designed with a user-friendly interactive input screen providing defaults and options in accordance with the AGMA 2001 standard (American Gear Manufacturers Association).”  The users of Excel-Lent software can easily navigate through the input screens to edit, analyze and produce reports on the optimum gear and gearbox design for various industrial and other applications.

“This software is not designed for any specific industry,” continues Chinnusamy.  It can be used for machine tools, heavy materials handling equipment or even the wind turbine industry.  For the wind turbine industry, for example, the designer needs a full understanding of all the operating loads on the gear members to arrive at the required power rating.

The key calculations performed are the AGMA power rating and load calculations, including bending strength geometry factor (J) and pitting resistance geometry factors (I).  Output from the software is a single page of data printed in a format that is easy to read and interpret.  Other commercial software typically prints five or six pages of information, which may be confusing to most design engineers unless they are gear experts, Chinnusamy further observed.

The users of Excel-Lent need not be familiar with AGMA standards to use this software.  Those who are not gear engineers can also benefit from the gear engineering knowledge embedded in the software package.

Excel-Lent contains three sections – design, analysis and gear dimensions. Any of the sections can be used individually to run calculations.  On a typical job, according to Excel Gear, hundreds of hours typically spent doing the calculations can be saved.
