    RELEASE OF MITCalc v1.20

    4/11/2005

    Extended by new Bevel Gear and Bearings calculation modules, integrated Extension Pack EP03.

    The new version of MITCalc engineering calculations has been extended by new calculation modules:

    Bevel Gear (straight, oblique and curved teeth)

    Solutions of geometric and strength parameters of conical gearing with straight, oblique and curved teeth. Based on power requirements and operational and production parameters, you can carry out the design of an optimised solution in minutes. The calculation is given in imperial and SI units, according to the standards DIN, ISO, ANSI and AGMA (More info...).

    Rolling Bearings I (SKF)

    The module is designed for the design, selection and control of rolling bearings. In addition to the calculation of basic parameters (life, static safety, etc.) the program enables a solution of a modified life according to ISO and calculates loading of pairs of tapered roller bearings (bearings with oblique contacts). The module includes a database of more than 10,000 SKF bearings (More info...).

    Both new modules enable outputs to all supported 2D and 3D CAD systems.

    Other extensions relating to a major part of the existing calculations

    • Recording of tables – The selected calculations enable entering of results into the selected 2D CAD system in the form of a table.
    • Description of parts, BOM – Most calculations enable entering of a shortened three-row description (name, dimension, standard) into the 2D CAD system. This description can also be used as data for a BOM for the selected 3D CAD system.
    • Support of external language files (preparation for translations into other languages).
    • Minor changes and bug fixes.

    Change to structure of the delivered calculations and packages:

    Within the simplification of the installation, the calculations are now available in the form of an installation file that also includes a connection to the selected 3D CAD system (e.g. “MITCalc for SolidWorks“).

    EXTENSION PACK EP03

    9/30/2004

    New Tolerance Analysis and Technical Formulas Calculation modules...

    Tolerance Analysis

    Two programs are available for the analysis of linear, 2D and 3D dimensional chains, which in addition to the basic analysis (Worst case, Root Sum Squares, Monte Carlo...) also include a solution to some special matters, like analysis of a dimensional chain deformed as a result of temperature change and design of tolerances for a selective assembly. (More info...)

    Technical Formulas

    The workbook contains solutions to many dozens of basic formulas from physics, technology and mechanical engineering (Characteristics of solids, rectilinear and rotation motion, thermal expansion, friction…). Help, pictures as well as many selection tables with values of various coefficients and material properties are available for the formulas. (More info...)

    SERVICE PACK SP04

    3/3/2004

    Service Pack SP04 includes fixes from SP01, SP02, SP03 and solves issues described below.

    Shafts connection using a key, grooving

    • Incorrect setting of some cells for printing. (Importance – Low)
    • For selected shaft diameter is firmly assigned the key dimension. This patch allow to select any key dimension (Importance – Middle)
    • Incorrect assignment of the key dimension if the shaft diameter is maximum for certain key dimension range. Example: DIN 6885, shaft diameter 75mm. Is selected the key 22x14 instead 20x12. (Importance – Middle)

    Bolted connection

    • Incorrect setting of some cells for printing. (Importance – Low)
