Moment of Inertia Calculator

Forget all about complex calculations

The resulting moment of inertia or centre of gravity when placing one or multiple loads can now be easily calculated.

The calculation of the real moment of inertia of a set of loads is of high relevance as a miscalculation can lead to an oversizing, undersizing or simply an invalid solution.

By selecting the type of operation and mounting orientation, together with the position(s) and weight(s) of the load(s) as a whole, you will get the final and useful result. This data can then be used in our other software.
