Romax Technology Limited

- Advanced Gear, Driveline and Bearing System Design Software


RomaxDESIGNER is the product of choice for ground vehicle transmissions and is licensed by 14 of the world's top 15 automakers. It is also used widely in the design of stationary products and industrial equipment as well as the rail, bearing, off-highway, marine and aerospace sectors.

RomaxDESIGNER enables users to design within the context of a complete transmission system rather than design components and subsystems in isolation. This allows the complex interactions that affect misalignment and loading of components to be considered from a very early stage which ultimately leads to much fewer design iterations.

RomaxDESIGNER allows you to:

  • Create a complete whole-system simulation model, from concept level to fully detailed, perform advanced analyses and optimise for durability, efficiency and NVH
  • Reduce product development cycle time while improving the quality and optimisation of the finished design
  • Import and export geometry from all major CAD applications
  • Import gear details from packaged and in-house gear design applications
  • Intelligently create and export optimised models for MBD analysis
  • Seamlessly integrate with the highly innovative concept design product, CONCEPT
  • Interface with in-house systems and component libraries for gear and bearing design and for material selection

'We have been using RomaxDESIGNER software in all our new product development since 1997 as, together with Romax's engineering services, it helps us to speed up our development times and enables us to make improvements in areas such as NVH.'
- Kisung Lee, Senior Research Engineer, Hyundai WIA

RomaxDESIGNER software delivers technical and business advantages in multiple areas: 

  • Comprehensive and integrated whole system analysis
  • Advanced NVH analysis capabilities including the ability to predict planetary transmission error and accurate system stiffness and mode shapes
  • Simulation of any geared product, including planetary systems and bevel and hypoid gears
  • Full bearing analysis capability, including non-linear bearing models and advanced analytical fatigue life prediction capability
  • Whole system simulation allows the accurate prediction of individual gear durability through to dynamic issues arising from misalignment, whine and rattle - and optimisation of the dynamic performance of the complete drivetrain
  • Full scope to investigate and understand the effects of any design parameter on product durability and performance - avoiding excessive requirements for prototype testing
  • Application for any gear, shaft and bearing system, from power tools to mining equipment and from complex automotive planetary transmissions to the largest wind turbine gearboxes

'As a result of using RomaxDESIGNER in our most recent SKYACTIV transmissions project, we have seen substantial improvement in fuel economy.'
- Takashi Miyamoto, Engine Performance Development Department, Mazda Corporation

RomaxDESIGNER software delivers technical and business advantages in multiple areas:

  • FAST – modelling and analysis in seconds, an all-in-one CAE system, cutting design time by 60% and analysis time by over 80%
  • EASY – comprehensive built-in database, automatic set-up of boundary conditions
  • ACCURATE - proven worldwide in multiple sectors by world-leading organizations
  • FLEXIBLE – part of an integrated Romax toolset, and interfaces with a wide range of CAE/CAD tools

'We have been engaged with RomaxDESIGNER for the past 2 years focusing our attention on gearbox design. Using this software, we were able to simulate various limits of gears in the form of gear pitting, gear tooth bending, and gearbox NVH etc. '
