App helps engineers find alternative

04 March 2021

PLANETARY GEARBOX manufacturer, Apex Dynamics UK, has developed a mobile phone application that helps engineers quickly find an ideal alternative to a Neugart gearbox from its own range of products.

Developed with servo and mechanical design engineers in mind, the Apex Dynamics app is a simple-to-use facility that can be downloaded for free on iPhone and Android phones. Users simply click on the simple drop-down menus and choose a Neugart product type and size, and then select a ratio and if appropriate the shaft and backlash options. The app then almost instantly finds a direct equivalent Apex Dynamics product, which usually can be supplied faster and cheaper than the competitor products. The app user just has to click on the “call us to request a quote or discuss” or fill in the contact form and they’ll receive a prompt reply.

The team at Apex Dynamics is planning to add more manufacturers and information to the app database very soon, making it an even more useful tool for design engineers.

The company continues to unveil new products, recently bringing to the market the GL/GLS series, a high-end gearbox range ideally suited to automated guided vehicle and automated mobile robot (AGV and AMR) applications.
