cymex® 5 – The Proven Software for Drive System Optimization


Our free sizing software cymex® 5 enables the simple dimensioning and evaluation of the complete drive train (application + transformation + motor + gearhead). The precise calculations are facilitated by predefined standard applications such as belt, spindle, rotary-table and rack & pinion drives. Consideration of all major influencing factors and customer-specific parameters result in a reliable and efficient design as well as optimization of the drive system.


  • Simple and reliable design through pre-defined standard applications
  • All customer-specific application parameters taken into account
  • cymex® 5 Motion Profiler for creating simple and complex motion and load profiles
  • Import functions of motion profiles from SAM, Excel, ASCII databases with all WITTENSTEIN alpha products as well as 11,000 motors offered by all current manufacturers
  • Visualization of loads in relation to all important component parameters in the drive train
  • Offline CAD generator: 3D gearhead files including all attached components
  • Technical calculation documentation
