PERFLEXION ® is a proprietary computer modeling software based on the pioneering work of our Dr. Adam Black. It is a powerful tool that allows our design engineers to optimize the performance characteristics of a Flexible Shaft.
Flexible Shafts are a surprisingly complex product not easily modeled by simple calculations. For example, one of the most challenging aspects of designing a Flexible Shaft is balancing the opposing properties of bending flexibility and torsional deflection. Prior to the use of Perflexion it was nearly impossible to optimize one of these characteristics without compromising the other.
With Perflexion we can now fully model the behavior of all the wires within the shaft and arrive at a design that provides maximum bending flexibility while allowing minimal torsional deflection with 20% to 30% improvement above accepted industry standards.
