The tool you can rely on !
Mechanism design is just one of the many challenges that you have to face and if it’s not your daily routine it is important that the tools you are using are easy and intuitive. Most of our development staff has a mechanical design background, so we understand your needs !
SAM for specialists
With SAM you can tackle any mechanism design challenge, perform motion/force-analysis and even improve the initial design with state-of-the-art optimization based on a mixed evolutionary algorithm and Simplex approach.
Advanced & Easy-to-use
Despite the fact that ease-of-use is priority number one, SAM incorporates advanced features and even supports complex optimization. The optimization module of SAM offers single-function multi-parameter unconstrained optimization based on a mix of evolutionary algorithms and Simplex techniques.
Jan Veldheer (project engineer at SEW-Eurodrive B.V., Netherlands): “I use the SAM software to select and dimension electromechanical drive systems for customer's linkage system applications. The software is an excellent tool for that purpose. SAM is intuitive and easy-to-use. Complex mechanisms can be imported via DXF-drawings. Once the desired motion profile is selected, the major parameters (torque, speed, power, …) are calculated and a suitable drive system can be selected. Furthermore the SAM developers are very open and responsive to suggestions from users, which I appreciate very much.”
