Bearing design using Bearinx®: Operational reliability for bearing supports in customers’ applications by modeling all boundary conditions
medias® is available free of charge

Calculated safety with Bearinx®

Even the best product is worthless if it is incorrectly used. So you should draw on the experience and expertise of our engineers in bearing design and calculation.

For example, by using the Bearinx® calculation program, rolling bearings can be analyzed in detail – right down to a single rolling contact. It is possible to experiment with the influence of various measurables and operating conditions during various optimization steps. The results show how the bearing support is stressed under the various load conditions. The program enables the bearings to be dimensioned according to the application. During simulation, the optimum design for the application can be determined easily and cost-effectively by changing the position, type and size of the bearing.

The Schaeffler Group’s calculation service is rounded out by FEM analyses, dynamic simulations or measurements at the customers’ premises.
