5/12/2011 | Thomson provides free-of-charge mobile app for technical calculations

WOLFSCHLUGEN, GERMANY – Thomson, a provider of innovative linear drive and ‑guidance systems, provides a new app on its website. The "EngineersCALC" application contains four different, frequently used calculation programs that support machine and positioning system designers and engineers in their daily work. EngineersCALC allows users to quickly convert figures from one unit of measurement to another, determine the inertia of bodies with simple shapes, calculate the density of various materials and look up commonly used trigonometry and calculation functions. The app impresses with its powerful and thereby fast calculation speed, as well as its highly intuitive and user-friendly interface. It allows users of smartphones to carry a valuable planning tool with them wherever they go - not just in the office, but also in the field, for example in a test lab or a model workshop. EngineersCALC also allows users to save their calculations or forward them to colleagues quickly and easily using the integrated e-mail and message module.
EngineersCALC is currently available for the Apple iPhone, iPad and iTouch, as well as for Android and Blackberry smartphones. Thomson also offers a free-of-charge desktop version of the application. This practical "Motion Engineer's Toolbar" can be integrated in the Windows taskbar, allowing it to be displayed whenever needed and then easily hidden again. It is compatible with the Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.0 operating systems.
