Bearinx®-online Linear Calculation


BEARINX®-online Linear Calculation

Powerful calculation software from INA/FAG – available online for customers
This service is intended for Schaeffler direct customers and Schaeffler sales partners.


BEARINX-online Linear Calculation can be used to determine the actual strain, taking account of the various loads and the deflection behavior of linear bearings with a guideway and carriage. The internal load distribution in the bearing is determined precisely down to the contact pressure, taking account of the rolling element profile and the different preload classes.

User-friendly interface due to an assistant and integrated database acces
Standard linear axis with two guideways and four linear bearings RUE45-E

User-friendly interface

The algorithms in BEARINX-online Linear Calculation are identical with those in BEARINX, which is used in the Schaeffler Group. BEARINX-online Linear Calculation helps you calculate multi-axis linear systems.

A Java-aided user interface assists you in the input of data and offers, through graphical representation of the model as well as the object tree, both an overview of the model and the opportunity to check the inputted data.

Data and geometries for linear bearings from the complete Schaeffler catalog range are available in an integrated database and can be transferred into the model. The calculations themselves are performed on a powerful calculation server located at Schaeffler.


Advisory engineers at your side

Calculation files created in BEARINX-online Linear Calculation are compatible with the full version of BEARINX, which means that these calculation files can be easily exchanged, giving easier communication with our engineering service and avoiding duplicate work.

Analysis of your design variants is aided by the transparent documentation of results in HTML format and the graphical representation of pressures and internal load distribution in the bearings. A help system and an online learning program helps you to utilise the full potential of BEARINX-online Linear Calculation.

Working towards more intensive partnership

BEARINX-online Linear Calculation is not intended as a way of transferring advice and calculation services from Schaeffler to the customer. Quite the opposite - we want to work with you more closely than ever. The objective is to make a suitable preliminary selection of linear bearings in the early design phase, in order to shorten development times within your Company.

Contractual agreement of usage

If you request 'Approval' for BEARINX-online Linear Calculation, this initiates an internal decisionmaking process which, if successful, will lead to the offer of a contract.

Once the contract is signed, we will create a logon and invite you to attend a two day training course at the Schaeffler Academy in Herzogenaurach. This will be followed by final authorization to use the calculation module.

Introduction fees

Provision of BEARINX-online Linear Calculation on the Internet and the two day training course for introductory support incurs the following one-off costs:

  • 1 participant 2000 €
  • 2 participants 3600 €
  • 3 participants 4800 €
  • 4 participants 5600 €
  • Each additional participant +400 €

There are no licence or maintenance fees.

Restrictions applicable to the customer version

BEARINX-online Linear Calculation is intended for provisional design of products only. For final design and selection of products, assistance should be sought from the relevant parts of the Schaeffler engineering service.
