About ASOM

Analysis, Synthesis und Optimization of Multi-bar linkages

You want to design a multi-bar linkage from scratch? Or ‘simply’ change an existing one? We offer you a kinematics software that will not only make those tasks easier, but will also help you arrive at optimal solutions in the shortest time yet!

Your advantages at a glance:

  • User-friendly
  • Real time analysis
  • Quick solutions
  • Build for real-world needs
  • User-defined requirements
  • Intuitive use
  • Inverted approach
  • Interactive synthesis

The user-friendly kinematics software

No matter if you develop cars, exercise machines, windows, cupboards, hospital beds, etc. – as an engineer in any industry you know how much of a time sink handling kinematic problems can be.

Especially if you want to put complex coupling gears into practice. The slightest change in a multi-bar linkage can completely derail the motion you planned for. Add influencing forces, available construction spaces and other restrictions to the mix and it is practically guaranteed that it will take months to garner some viable results.

However, with ASOM’s aid you will find the optimal solution in next to no time.

Motion to linkage

We introduce multi-bar synthesis processes that allow you to benefit from the advantages of inverse kinematics. You begin by determining positions and angles (points and planes) you want attached parts to reach. The software will subsequently help you with each step of the creation and adaption of your linkage.

This gives ASOM a unique position on the user-centered kinematic software market.

Solutions in real time — see what you are doing!

Furthermore, any changes you make to your kinematic system (e.g. a four-bar or six-bar system) in ASOM are tracked and their effects computed, simulated and visualized in real time. This makes the development process highly interactive and comprehensible.

Quickly and intuitively derive a usable presentation

Use our syntheses to quickly find a multi-bar system that implements your desired movement. Use our features for importing DXF files or image files to attach depictions of your actual parts to the mechanism. In this way you can quickly and intuitively derive a simulation that you can also use directly for presenting your solution.

A practice-oriented multi-tool

ASOM contains a huge variety of tools used for the creation of mechanical linkages. Their user-friendly design allows for much more than ‘just’ simulating your system’s kinematics.

You can easily gather all relevant information (like holding forces, moments of a torque etc.) in a table or let it be plotted out.
