The PAX software is a full 3D finite element software program for conveyor pulley analysis.
For years, detailed pulley analysis could only be done using complex and expensive finite element analysis software.
Even then the effort, expertise, and time required to preformed a single detailed pulley design was both tedious and extensive.
AC-Tek’s principle engineers have been preforming finite element analysis on conveyor pulleys for over 25 years and is considered one of the worlds leading experts in this area.
