FVA GmbH is a joint venture of VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) and FVA e.V. (Research Association for Drive Technology). Founded in 2010, FVA GmbH works hand-in-hand with top-level German research institutions and leading companies from the drive technology industry toward the active transfer of FVA research findings into industrial practice. Core competencies are the development of drive technology calculation and simulation software, processing and conversion of legacy code structures into modern software architectures, professional service and support, and hosting technical seminars and conferences.
Services for the drive technology industry
FVA experts provide design, calculation, and automation assistance.
On- and offline conferences focus on trends and key technologies. International experts share the latest research findings and practical experience.
FVA-Workbench – Software for the drive technology industry
The FVA-Workbench is a powerful, manufacturer-independent tool for the simulation and calculation of transmission systems. As product development cycles become shorter, powerful modeling approaches and calculation algorithms become increasingly important. The predominantly analytical approaches in the FVA-Workbench deliver fast and reliable solutions to all important issues related to drive technology. For bodies that cannot be accurately described analytically, the results are supplemented by suitable numerical methods. The intuitive modeling techniques in the FVA-Workbench enable simulation of consistent, valid, and manufacturable gears every time.
