ITW Issues Truspec Anchor Calculation Software

Free software simplifies concrete connection design for A&Es.

ITW Commercial Construction, North America introduces a new anchor calculation software that allows Architects and Engineers to design concrete anchoring connections in minutes.

The new Truspec anchor calculation software is free for download at Design professionals can create anchor connections in accordance with ACI 318 Appendix D.

Truspec anchor calculation software users can quickly and easily:

  • Select the number of anchor points
  • Model simultaneous moment forces in x-, y-, z-axis
  • Model multiple edge and spacing distance configurations
  • Calculate critical values for total strength design of anchor connections
  • Optimize designs across multiple scenarios.

This software also includes a user-friendly interface design. This design implements real-time 3D graphics, color coded results, value displays in US Customary or Metric Units.

Additionally, Truspec anchor calculation software users can:

  • Predict mode of failure for anchor connections
  • Recommend most efficient anchoring method
  • Recommend most efficient anchor size
  • Specify anchoring methods to achieve a desired failure mode.

Product datasheet, photos, ICC-ES evaluation reports, and specification packages are all included in the Truspec anchor calculation software. This software also supports architects and engineers by generating printed or PDF versions of anchor connection data, detailed calculations for anchor connection design, test reports, and specification packages.

ITW Commercial Construction North America is excited to offer this anchor design software to design professionals free of charge. For additional information or to download the software, go to
