Product name

Gearbox and driveline design, analysis and optimisation.
MASTA is a complete suite of CAE software for the design, simulation & analysis of driveline systems from concept through to manufacture.

Product detail


  • Accurately and rapidly design transmission systems from scratch or imported concepts.
  • Comprehensively understand the life of a mechanical part over the customer duty cycle.
  • Identify potential failure modes early in the product development cycle.
  • Rapidly predict key performance characteristics at the design stage.
  • Easily explore changes in transmission layout, component selection and/or design, materials and manufacturing processes in the convenience of a virtual environment.
  • Perform full system simulations for any transmission or driveline configuration.
  • Incorporate manufacturing simulation at the design stage to reduce process development time & cost.
  • MASTA’s unique and modern architecture written from the ground up in C# makes it a significantly more stable comparative solution for current and future operating systems.
