Schaeffler releases latest version of BEARINX bearing design calculation software

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Version 10 of Schaeffler’s BEARINX bearing design software is said to include an expanded range of calculation tools for rolling bearings, including the option of taking gearing into detailed consideration. OptiKit, a universal component for parameter optimisation, is also included. Input dialogs have been reorganised for ease of use, and developments have been made in terms of bearing selection. The recently launched TORB range of toroidal roller bearings has also been integrated.

The bearing selection function is now claimed to include the option of freely combining different rows of rolling elements in a single bearing. This will be of interest to those designing, for example, asymmetrical double-row bearings, which must support high but different axial loads in both directions.

Since many customers wish to design their own applications, customer versions of BEARINX are also available. These comprise individual calculation modules taken from the full version of the software, which are made available to customers to allow them to have in-depth involvement in the early stages of the product development process.

The calculation modules in the Easy series have the same structure as the assistants in the full version of the program and, after initial registration, are available free on the Internet.The BEARINX-online Easy series currently includes the following modules: BEARINX-online Easy Linear; BEARINX-online Easy Friction; BEARINX-online Easy Linear System; BEARINX-online Easy Ballscrew; BEARINX-online Easy RopeSheave; and BEARINX-online Easy EMachine.

The BEARINX-online calculations are taken from the system level of the full version and provide selected customers with an additional range of calculation and analysis options: BEARINX-online Shaft Calculation; BEARINX-online Spindle Calculation; and BEARINX-online Linear Calculation. The use of these modules is contractually regulated and the introduction includes a training course and a one-off fee. The calculations are carried out online, so the customer does not have to carry out any installation.
