SMT (Smart Manufacturing Technology Ltd.) announces the forthcoming release of its latest edition of drivetrain design and analysis software, MASTA Suite 6. Since its first release over 10 years ago blue chip companies worldwide have trusted MASTA on a daily basis to facilitate their development and manufacture of the transmission and driveline technologies of tomorrow. The release of MASTA Suite 6 guarantees users can maintain that confidence and keep on top of the demanding and dynamic nature of the transmission and driveline industry.
MASTA Suite is an all-inclusive package of drivetrain design, analysis and manufacture simulation tools. With seamless integrations to CAD, Gleason’s CAGE and other third party tools it provides a robust and essential keystone to engineers’ development cycles. Fundamentally, MASTA cuts costs, time-to-market and unlocks the full potential of engineer innovation.
MASTA Suite 6 will be a feature rich environment giving the engineer access to a complete set of gear, shaft and bearing development and analysis tools. Accurately and rapidly calculate industry ratings based on full system inputs. Improvements to the user interface and workflow ensure that MASTA fits the engineer. This not only allows new users to learn the software quickly but seasoned users will also find efficiency enhancements to their development cycle. Results reporting is fully customizable in a report builder allowing it to be flexibly tailored to the needs and brand of the client including the creation and saving of templates to use again and share with others. The software package is also more modular in design allowing you to tailor your installation to the business’s needs. Importing and converting from various 3-D model file formats has never been easier. Seamless integration with Gleason’s CAGE software closes the development cycle for bevel gears allowing designers to work in the constraints of machine calibrations. Furthermore, MASTA Suite 6 is supported from Windows XP onwards and certified compatible for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 allowing anyone with a licence to share the same professional experience between different operating systems.
