Calculation software for monorail guidance systems that helps distributors and end users to minimise development times for new machine builds is available, for free via the Internet.

Linear Easysolution has been released by the Schaeffler Group for its rolling bearing calculation software, Bearinx.

It calculates the basic rating life of a driven linear axis that is supported by rolling bearings, with an intuitive menu system that provides clear instructions on how to input data.

The software contains the most commonly used linear axis combinations in pre-configured arrangements comprising a drive, guideway and carriage.

There is also an option to freely select an axis combination using up to four guideways and 16 carriages.

Linear Easysolution enables designers to calculate and select the most appropriate linear-guidance system at an early stage in their design process.

The software simulates the actual stresses and loads on the guidance elements, taking contact angle displacement into account, as well as the non-linear deflection behaviour of the rolling element contacts and the elastic guideway and carriage.

Exact calculations for the internal load distribution in the bearing are performed, including contact pressure with the actual rolling element profile and various pre-load classes.

This enables users to minimise development times for new machine builds.

The calculation tool uses software algorithms to simulate linear rolling bearings.

All the data inputs for calculations, such as axis arrangement, forces and load cases, can be saved for further processing and optimisation.

The documented calculation result can then be output as a PDF file.

Linear Easysolution is available exclusively online and can be used free of charge without restrictions.

It can be used for calculations across the complete range of INA monorail guidance systems, including linear recirculating roller bearing and guideway assemblies (RUE-E); two-row linear recirculating ball bearing and guideway assemblies (KUE); four-row linear recirculating ball bearing and guideway assemblies (KUVE-B); six-row linear recirculating ball bearing and guideway assemblies (KUSE); two-row miniature linear recirculating ball bearing and guideway assemblies (KUEM); and four-row miniature linear recirculating ball bearing and guideway assemblies (KUME-C).
