Introduction to MASTA CAE software

MASTA Benefits

Accurately and rapidly design transmission systems from scratch or imported concepts.

Comprehensively understand the life of a mechanical part over the customer duty cycle.

Identify potential failure modes early in the product development cycle.

Rapidly predict key performance characteristics at the design stage.

Easily explore changes in transmission layout, component selection and/or design, materials and manufacturing processes in the convenience of a virtual environment.

Perform full system simulations for any transmission or driveline configuration.

Incorporate manufacturing simulation at the design stage to reduce process development time & cost.

MASTA’s unique and modern architecture written from the ground up in C# makes it a significantly more stable comparative solution for current and future operating systems.

“MASTA has been continuously used  in the design and application of engineering projects since its purchase and has proven itself to be highly usable and stable. It has been an imperative tool in the product development cycle and has allowed significant reductions in our analysis time with clear benefits to the business.”

“MASTA has greatly improved our gearcase design and analysis capabilities, and of all the decisions I’ve made over the 40 years working for Joy Global, half of that in gearcase design, picking MASTA CAE software is without doubt the best one!”

MASTA was an essential tool that helped achieve the goals we wished out of the designs in a relatively short period of time.
