Schaeffler launch free online rolling bearing calculator
Latest BEARINX-online module designed to help users choose suitable bearings for electric motors and generators
SCHAEFFLER have released a new online rolling bearing calculator for electric motors and generators. The latest BEARINX-online Easy EMachine software allows users to quickly and easily select suitable rolling bearings for motors and generators based on their typical mechanical loads and electromagnetic field loads.
The module allows calculations to be performed with horizontal, vertical or freely selectable orientation. Users can quickly browse and compare a range of different bearing support variants. The weight of the shaft, laminated cores and windings, as well as magnetic tension and other freely configurable loads, are also available for users to select. This allows belt pulleys, gears and shaft imbalances to be modelled at various speeds and under different load cases.
Bearings (critical to the optimum performance of the electric motor) can be calculated and selected from a wide range of variants. INA and FAG rolling bearing data, for example, can be easily uploaded from the integrated database. Saved files can also be exchanged with Schaeffler’s engineering service or with a local Schaeffler technology centre for final checking.
The objective of the online calculation module is to offer customers optimized, efficient support for their own product-development process at all times and, in doing so, help to reduce development times.
Renowned for their ease of use, the BEARINX-online Easy programmes for rolling bearings have been specially designed to cover the modelling and calculation of complete powertrains and linear motion systems, based on relevant data connected to elasticity, contact rigidity and other environmental influences.
The BEARINX-online modules currently available include: Easy BallScrew for ball screw bearing supports; Easy Friction for calculating rolling bearing friction; and Easy RopeSheave for the design of rope sheave bearing supports.
