Involute Gear Development Software Program

FastSHAPES® is the generic name for a suite of Plate & Sheet development software programs specifically designed for heavy fabrication where the main jointing technology is welding.

The INVINT software module is for the development of most standard partial and full (involute) gears in sheet and plate. In an involute gear, the profiles of the teeth are involutes of a circle. (The involute of a circle is the spiraling curve traced by the end of an imaginary taut string unwinding itself from that stationary circle called the base circle.)

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Spur Geared Power Transmission
Tilting Equipment Drives (e.g. Ladles)
(Often used as 'rack' with pinion from RandP)
