Successful promotion of Asymmetric Gear Design and Skiving simulation in GPS 5.5 at IMTS (Chicago) and JIMTOF (Tokyo)

12 December 2018

These exhibitions were a chance to promote new additions to Gear Production Suite ahead of Release 5.5. There was a great deal of interest specifically in asymmetric gear design and skiing simulation in great demand at the moment. We have already had sales of these items after testing of the Beta version. Based on the feedback there is clearly significant functionality we can add to improve this and they will be implemented for an ‘Advanced’ level of these tools the next sub-release.

Other new tools for this sub-release are Beveloid design and LTC, Virtual Multi-Axis machine, Face Mill generation of bevels in 5-axis, CMM simulation of measuring gears.

These exhibitions were also a chance to promote Dontyne Gears’ services, which are growing by the month thanks to considerable collaboration with machine tool and inspection manufacturers. In previous years DG has carried out design work using the GPS software. Now , with the addition of high tech equipment, DG is promoting prototyping and testing services. It is possible to order individual aspect such as prototype gears, inspection of gear components, or testing in their in-house test rig with 125mm centre and ratio up to 4:1. Combining all of these could form full R&D projects. For more information contact the company on

Dontyne Gears promotes Gear R&D products and services at IMTS, Chicago, September 10th

28 August 2018

Our staff will be attending the Dontyne Gears Booth #237227 in the North Hall to promote our range of design, prototyping, and testing services at IMTS, Chicago, September 10th. They will be explaining how the design and manufacturing capabilities at our Washington facility can be applied to improving production processes. Novel designs and materials, including tool design and inspection protocols, can be soon tested and validated in our test rigs to be commissioned within the next 6 months.

We will also be promoting recent additions to the Gear Production Suite from Dontyne Systems. There has been a strong emphasis this year on novel designs and improved manufacturing simulations with communication to machine tools and inspection equipment in line with Industry 4.0 to enable improved product and production capability. Some items new for IMTS will be;

  • Asymmetric design and FE of spur & helical
  • Beveloid design
  • Skiving manufacturing simulation
  • Honing manufacturing simulation
  • Face Mill generation of bevels in 5-axis
  • CMM simulation of measuring gears without rotary table

We look forward to seeing you there to discuss how these, and and our R&D capabilities, can improve accuracy and efficiency in your gear products and production process. We recommend making an appointment with Rich by email

Dontyne launches G-code export to CNC machining at IMTS, Chicago, 12-17 September

12 August 2016

Dontyne Gears will promote its range of products and services at IMTS next month. This will include the launch of a tool in the Gear Production Suite by Dontyne Systems to generate G-code for machine tools to cut gear teeth without the need for a CAM package. This will save a great deal of time for any company looking for alternatives to standard gear production methods. Mazak Inc have confirmed the output is compatible with their range of products and will be demonstrating the use of this at the show. Further development and direct integration with machine tools will enable real time correction for error from tool wear and thermal distortion.replicas de relojes espana

For more information on this new software including, demo and free trial install contact or and visit us at IMTS Booth #N-7227 and with Mazak at Booth #S-8300

Dontyne Gears will also be promoting it’s ability to provide gear design and analysis services including test programs for validation as well offering related products such as measurement equipment and test rigs.
