Direct access to bearing data

The Swedish rolling bearing manufacturer SKF and the Swiss gearbox design software developer KISSsoft have joined forces: The KISSsoft Release 2019 offers the possibility to calculate bearing performance by SKF through a cloud calculation service (Module WPK and WB1). Bearing rating life and other performance parameters are calculated by direct access to SKF bearing geometry data and formulas, which have been validated by extensive testing at SKF facilities. The results are separately displayed and can therefore quickly be compared with ISO results.
SKF bearing module in KISSsoft enables a machine engineer to a seamless experience when working on a new gearbox design. As a result, the prediction of bearing performance is realistic, especially for the SKF Explorer range and hybrid bearings.
