Technical Design – BEARINX®

For most applications, calculation and design can be carried out using conventional calculation methods. However, we advise that our application engineering experts are consulted in order to make full use of the capabilities of a bearing and to select suitable bearing parameters (fit, clearance, preload, sealing, lubrication, etc).

In addition to empirical values, our engineers use BEARINX® calculation software. This has been developed by the Schaeffler Group and has a unique performance capability.

As with a CAD system, the different applications are initially simulated by their bearing locations. A complete bearing database simplifies the selection of possible bearing variants that can be calculated very quickly after entering the load data and speeds. The software makes use of the latest findings about the load carrying capacities of bearings and enables a large number of evaluation options.

The results provide detailed information about the loads on shafts and rolling bearings and provide already in the development phase of an electric motor the basis for an optimum solution in terms of function and cost-effectiveness.
