SOLIDWORKS Bearing Calculator

SOLIDWORKS Bearing Calculator helps us to calculate capacity and life of bearing, enabling the engineer in better selection of bearing based on its application and working condition.



SOLIDWORKS Bearing Calculator

SOLIDWORKS Bearing Calculator helps us to calculate capacity and life of bearing, enabling the
engineer in better selection of bearing based on its application and working condition.
To calculate the capacity and life time of the bearing,Select the Standard(ANSI,ISO,DIN etc)
followed by the type of bearing and the size of bearing.There is an option to set the measurement
units to US(English) or SI(Metric). Select the desired non-failure rate(Reliability) for the selected
bearing.

There are two different ways to specify the capacity.If the calculated capacity is chosen then an
option will be available to enter the number of balls used in the bearing and ball diameter of the
bearing.After entering the values,click “Solve capacity” button to calculate the total capacity of the
bearing. If Rated capacity is chosen,enter the value of Capacity.This capacity value is used in the
calculation for the basic life.

Then enter the equivalent load(Combined radial and thrust loads for the bearing) and Speed in
RPM. Click “Solve Life” button to calculate life time of the bearing.Beam calculator calculates the life

time in Revolutions and life time in hours(When you specify the speed in RPM).



Benefits:

  1. We can easily predict the life of the bearing.
  2. Free from manual calculation.
  3. Helps us to choose right bearing for right application.
  4. Reduce time and manual error.
