Gerotor Design Studio
Gerotor Design Studio (GDS) is a unique, fully featured CAD/ CAM solution to the difficult task of designing, analyzing and manufacturing gerotor pumping elements. These pumping elements are used in many types of fluid transfer and hydraulic power applications across the World as they offer significant benefits over traditional ‘spur gear’ type pumps (package size, smoother fluid delivery, more efficient, less noise, etc.).
Although the gerotor element has been around for a long time and its benefits are well documented, it is not an easy shape to produce. Hence anyone involved with pump design wishing to use a gerotor set has had to use an ‘off the shelf’ item from one of the major gerotor manufacturers. Whilst this is an acceptable method of obtaining gerotors, you generally have to design the pump around what is available. The ability to design bespoke gerotor sets (and be able to manufacture them) means you now have complete control over your pump design and manufacture processes.
Gerotor Design Studio and Gamma Technologies have joined forces to offer their customers reliable advanced simulation capabilities for gerotor pumps based on the complementary strengths of each tool.
Design and create your gear set and porting directly in Gerotor Design Studio and get a quick estimate of pump performance. For advanced simulation, import the CAD model directly into GT-SUITE, and generate a 1D flow model automatically from the CAD model, to predict detailed flow and pressure pulsations, as well as cavitation and resonance.
