The design of movements, cams, indexing cam gears and servo drive trains is crucial for machines' performance and durability.
Well-designed mechanisms with good motion design are no more expensive to manufacture than bad ones, but work much better and longer.
The core of our software and services business is making machines more powerful through good design of mechanisms and motions, faster, quieter and more durable. Over the decades, we gained a lot of practical experience, which we pass on today with workshops and trainings.
If you can only increase the speed of a machine earning your money by 5% by using a few of our tips, a workshop with us has usually been worthwhile. Often, however, we achieve a speed improvement by more than 40% when we optimize machines dynamically!
You benefit permanently from the ideas we share with you. Apply the knowledge to several machines and multiply your success!
All trainings are carried out online.
Appointments can be set freely.
For your special requirements, we also combine topics from various trainings into an individually designed training package.
Generally, we want to answer all your questions as part of our training and seminars.
We like to discuss all topics referring your specific tasks, as far as secrecy permits.
In all trainings, the main focus is on methods and improvements that can be integrated into your existing design practice without much effort and thus give you immediate benefits.

Take over the current state of the cam technology from the experts!
This seminar conveys the current know-how for designing cams. You question your existing cam designs and work out concrete improvements for the design of the motions and for the arrangement of the joints, levers, slides, etc.
Use practice-proven and in-depth special methods of motion design to increase machine performance!
You will learn the current state of the techniques for designing highly dynamic motions. The seminar presents powerful methods in a practical way.
Learn how to make mechanisms and motions energy efficient in a simple way!
Machines should not only be fast, flexible, easy to handle and inexpensive, but also use as little energy as possible during operation. This seminar gives the participants tips and solution suggestions on how to optimize the energy turnover in mechanisms with cams, linkages and servo drives. For example, we show jerk-free motion laws that can deliver 22% less energy than the most favorable motion laws in the popular VDI Guideline 2143, and cams that theoretically shrink the drive torque and thus the power to zero. By clever arrangement of mechanisms and masses and springs, the power to be applied by the drive can usually be reduced to the compensation of the friction and the forming forces on the output, ie the unavoidable minimum.
Optimize your machines energetically, powered by our experience! Increase speed and lifespan!
The computational investigation and optimization of the dynamic load in machines plays an increasing role in machine development, since machines are to run ever faster despite shorter development times. This seminar gives the participants a deep insight into the methods to determine the dynamic loads of cam and servo-controlled systems and to optimize the machines with simple means so that the loads and wear decrease and performance and processing quality increase.
Learn to optimize motions and mechanisms with OPTIMUS MOTUS software, or improve your skills!
Also includes a 30-day practise license of OPTIMUS MOTUS (R)
Training on the job! Kill two birds with one stone: learn software OPTIMUS MOTUS and at the same time solve calculation tasks in your daily business.
In this open workshop, you will have the chance to individually review your specific questions about OPTIMUS MOTUS with us. Mainly you will work on you own mechanism examples and calculation tasks in dealing with the software OPTIMUS MOTUS. The care is as individual as possible and is adapted to your level of knowledge.
In preparation of the workshop you will get a 30-day license of OPTIMUS MOTUS for the workshop and subsequent exercises at home.
As part of the workshop, questions on all topics of mechanism technology can be discussed, for example:
Duration: 1 day
Become an insider in motion design!
This seminar is about the theory behind the jerk-free motion laws that are used to create harmonic motions, that is, the current know-how of motion design.
Content: Formulas and derivations on the following topics:
Duration: 1 day
Good machines start with good kinematics!
Finding simple mechanisms to achieve a desired coupler curve or transfer function is still a major challenge for design engineers. Such mechanisms are still very common today, eg
- in hinges or fittings
- in steering rods of vehicles
- in high-speed processing machines
The seminar presents a general methodology on how to systematically find such coupling gears.
