11/20/2017:  GEAR EXPO 2017 - THANK YOU!

WOW! What a show Gear Expo was for us. We were able to show our software in connection with spiral bevel machining on a VC500 Mazak center, as well as inspection- both on board with the Renishaw SprintTM system and in-process control with the Renishaw EquatorTM. We were pleased to welcome many existing and potential clients to our booth.

Many thanks to the top management at Mazak Corp. and Renishaw for agreeing to supply the considerable resources required to make this a live display and so effective in showing the advantage of an integrated system.


Dontyne software is known for producing gear system designs quickly using our Gear Production Suite software, This display at Booth 123 showed how quickly and effectively we could create accurate designs and tooling information for CNC machines and inspection equipment.  This efficiently enabled what was previously cost prohibitive or impossible. With almost 150 leads from the week it seems we can certainly fulfil a requirement. Visitors were even more astonished to find the cost was well within budgets for production, while saving time and money, and could give ROI within weeks. We will be talking to all our visitors soon. For immediate info contact info@dontynesystems.com for a discussion on how this applies to your production.

We are currently scheduled to attend Gear Expo 2019 in Detroit, as well as IMTS in Chicago September 2018, with an even better display in mind.


Thanks again for all who stopped by!

Marcus Healy, QuaX Pumps North American Product Manager for EELLC

Easley Enterprises LLC (EELLC) is a North American corporation based in Cincinnati Ohio whose principals include Halifax Rack & Screw (gear rack, pinions and lead screws), Dontyne Systems (gear design, manufacture and inspection software), Hysan Technology (castings and mining wear parts), Miradix Inc. (cost estimating and part documentation services), PVZ Gears (gear design consulting services) and QuaX Pumps (submersible hydraulic pumps).


EELLC is pleased to announce that Marcus Healy has been appointed as the North American Product Manager for QuaX Pumps effective immediately.  Rich Easley, EELLC President comments “Marc’s experience supporting Quax sales and marketing, coupled now with his hands on experience, make him the ideal candidate to lead and build on our offering of these innovative products to the North American market”. Marc adds, “This is an exciting opportunity to support and further introduce these extremely reliable and rugged hydraulic submersible pumps to our EELLC clients and market”.


Hydraulically operated pumps are extremely beneficial and convenient for many applications including construction site dewatering, mine dewatering, sludge removal, sewage removal, marsh draining and general dewatering (for example: Zoo’s often need to quickly dewater tanks and bodies of water).


Why hydraulic?  Many construction sites and areas of arduous work conditions require the use of hydraulically operated equipment such as a skid steer, backhoe, or other type of hydraulically operated equipment.  Instead of running electricity to power an electric pump, you can simply run the Quax pumps from the on-board hydraulics used in these machines.  It’s that simple.  Click – and – go . 


EELLC is currently setting up distribution channels for these products in North America.  If your company is currently offering pumps, construction equipment or hydraulic equipment please contact Marc to see if adding these pumps would enhance your business opportunities.

Miradix Inc | Contract Engineering Services:

ShouldBE Costing - a solution for accurate parts estimating

Miradix Inc. continues to develop its proprietory parts and machine process costing model to help companies with manufacturing engineering skills shortages and estimating bottlenecks. The service involves analyzing customer prints to quickly, accurately and cost-effectively determine what the "true-cost" (ShouldBE) of parts, materials and processes is for RFQs that may be held up in an organizations bottleneck of prints awaiting action. Contracting out these activities to Miradix can help a company clear estimating backlogs, win more business AND cut the cost of processing RFQs - it can also free-up skilled engineers who often find themselves tied to a desk job-costing/parts estimating.

Early indications of the launch of this niche service are that the results and report formats provided are very thorough and credible; Miradix is continually improving the expediency and user-friendly report outputs to further enhance the appeal and cost-effectiveness of this service. The services are ideal for job shops of all sizes facing manufacturing engineer skills shortages or spikes in demand creating internal bottlenecks.

Introductory Offer - Miradix Inc offers a free introductory sample to "true-cost" one print on a "try it you'll like it" basis for new customers.

Other Services - Miradix Inc offers a broad range of other engineering services including drawings preparation, DFM, documentation and cycle time analysis; the demand for such services is partly evidenced by the volume of posted employment vacancies for skilled ME (manufacturing engineers) either on companies career pages or through recruitment agencies.
