Sumitomo Launches iOS Custom Equation Solver App

Sumitomo Machinery Corp. of America (SMA), U.S. headquarters for Sumitomo's Power Transmission and Control Group, introduces PT Equate, a custom equation solver. The new equation solver mobile app, available exclusively for Apple iOS, offers users the capability to create their own equations with customizable variables and a visual editor to represent the equation and its components through sketches, drawings, photos, or diagrams.

PT Equate is preloaded with equations commonly used in the power transmission industry, such as Torque to Electric Power, Cyclo Overhung Load, Rotational to Linear Velocity, and Torque to Accelerate Inertia. Users can create custom equations and corresponding visual aids through the equation builder functionality of the app.

The contact options of PT Equate enable users with a data network or wifi connection to email Sumitomo, locate their nearest Sumitomo Drive Technologies' sales representative, or visit Sumitomo's global Web site or online product configurator.

Designed to visualize and solve custom equations, Sumitomo's PT Equate is a universal app available on the Apple App Store in English for devices running iOS 6 or later, and features an interface optimized for iOS 7.
