Using the world’s leading planetary gearbox supplier just got easier thanks to the latest software release from Neugart.
The newest version of Neugart’s calculating software – Neugart Calculation Program (NCP) – is out now offering a range of new features and enhancements designed to streamline the sizing tool for users.
NCP enables users to input data from an application you already use or a machine you’re looking to build and it will help you to select the type of gearbox required.
The latest version - NCP 4.2 – is for the first time compatible with the newly-launched NGV gearbox and Neugart has also simplified the operation of the tool to improve user friendliness.
Key highlights of version 4.2 include:
Compatible with propulsion drives in Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and the new NGV gearbox that is tailored to these vehicles
Existing projects from current or older NCP versions can also now be loaded for newly designed controlled systems and compared with them
The ability to import existing motor data as well as gearbox data
Conversions are no longer required when importing read-out motor data
Users of popular CAD programs can now also use the familiar full stop as a separator as well as the comma
Calculations can now be carried out in the input fields
The gearbox documentation has been optimised meaning that the user can detect whether the selected gearbox is actually suitable on the basis of utilisation bars
An example is now included for every application making using the tool even easier
Neugart are a market-leading manufacturer of servo planetary gearboxes, manufacturing more than 400,000 gearboxes every year from their HQ in Kippenheim, Germany, and HMK are the exclusive UK supplier to the OEM market.
Dave Richardson, Design Engineer at HMK, said: “As an authorised distribution partner of Neugart in the UK, we supply and support their market leading products to a range of customers in the OEM market.
“NCP is a popular product with our customers due to the fact it’s very user-friendly, and the latest version is no exception.
“NCP allows users to configure the appropriate combination of motor and gearbox to ensure your application is cost and energy efficient. The complex software routine calculates all parameters for your whole drive train and parameters are visualised in real time, so you can easily compare similar drive components with each other.
“Despite the complex nature of the tool, it’s simple to use, with an intuitive interface, making it a popular choice for our OEMs and we’re confident they’ll be even more impressed with the latest version of the software.”
HMK’s experienced team of engineers can also provide bespoke training for customers to ensure you’re getting the most out of the software.
HMK is also teaming up with Neugart later this year to run a dedicated training programme on NCP. Contact us to find out more.
