BEARINX®-online Spindle Calculation
Efficient Calculation Software by INA/FAG – now available for you, too
This service is for direct customers of INA/FAG and INA/FAG sales partners.
Other calculation tools currently on the market usually make use of highly simplified calculation methods. In many cases, the tilted position of bearings resulting from shaft deflection and the differing deflection behavior that is present for various bearing designs are ignored. The internal load distribution in the bearing – decisive for fatigue life – is most often determined by approximation methods.
With BEARINX®-online software, you can now determine actual stresses while taking shaft deflection and rolling bearing deflection behavior into account. And of course, exact calculations for the internal load distribution in the bearing are performed, including contact pressure with the actual rolling element profile.
Intuitive user interface
The algorithms used in BEARINX®-online Spindle Calculation are identical to the ones used in BEARINX® at INA and FAG. BEARINX®-online enables you to perform calculations at your desk for single-shaft systems incorporating several bearings.
A Java-based user interface provides support for easy data entry. Graphic representations for your designs allow you to visualize your design and check the data easily.
The data and geometry for bearings in INA and FAG catalogs can be easily accessed from an integrated database. Powerful calculation servers at INA then perform the actual calculation.
Engineers at your side
The input files you create in BEARINX®-online Spindle Calculation are compatible with BEARINX®. This facilitates any further communication with our engineers and prevents duplicate work.
The comprehensive results in HTML format as well as the graphic representation of shaft reactions and bearing internal load distribution make it easier for you to analyze your design variants. An online tutorial and a detailed help system make it easier for you to use the full potential of BEARINX®-online Spindle Calculation.
Supplement 4 of DIN ISO 281 (April 2003) defines the standardized calculation of fatigue life using state-of-the-art computer-assisted calculation procedures. This procedure is of course available to you in the new version of BEARINX®-online.
Working together even more closely
BEARINX®-online Spindle Calculation was not developed to move support and calculation services away from INA and FAG and transfer them to the customer. On the contrary, since we would like to work even more closely with you. Our objective is to allow you to make the suitable preliminary selection for rolling bearings early on in the development process so that you can reduce your development times.
