“For mechanisms and tolerance-in-motion, Enventive can’t be beat.” – Jeff Gabalski, BAE Industries

Enventive Concept’s force modeling capability coupled with equation solving, kinematic, and tolerance analysis capabilities make it a powerful tool for travel and effort studies, such as determining the force to move a transmission shift lever, open a latch, or operate a clutch. Any mechanism for which force variation affects reliability is a candidate for analysis with Enventive Concept.

The following simple example uses Enventive Concept’s force modeling capabilities to solve for the torque required to statically hold in position a mechanism that’s being acted upon by a spring force.

Enventive Concept lets you change the value of the angle to see the torque change as the mechanism rotates, run tolerance analysis on the torque, and do a Tolerance-in-Motion™ study to see how the torque varies through the range of motion.
