KISSsoft is the worldwide leader providing the most technologically advanced, most comprehensive gear design analysis software tools available.


Since the start of the 1980’s, the factory L. Kissling & Co. AG had developed software for the calculation of machine components. Exclusively at first to meet its own requirements, but later this was also offered to other companies. In order to ensure the continued maintenance of the software, in 1998 the independent company KISSsoft AG was founded with the aim of improving, expanding and continued upgrading of the program.


The KISSsoft product line is available in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish. It covers AGMA, ISO and DIN Standards (among others) and is truly the only international software available.
