NSK provides bearing data 20 October 2023

NSK is to provide rolling bearing data to Mesys and KissSoft in a bid to accelerate the design process through quick bearing analysis.

KissSoft, part of the multi-national Gleason Corporation, develops modular calculation programs for the design, optimisation and verification of machine elements such as gears and transmissions in line with international standards. Similarly, Mesys develops software for technical calculations in a variety of mechanical engineering projects, with particular focus on the sizing of machine elements that include ball screws, shafts and more.

In response to requests from design engineers, NSK rolling bearings will become an part of KissSoft and Mesys technical calculation software programs, both of which are in use worldwide.

The data that NSK provides will initially span five bearing types: deep groove ball bearings, angular contact ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, tapered roller bearings and spherical roller bearings. Software users will call up NSK bearing information from the database and perform technical calculations involving gears, housings or shafts, for example. Users will also be able to determine factors such as the surface pressure and service life of bearings.

Importantly, NSK can update the data it provides at any time to ensure the delivery of optimal machine design calculations. Moving forward, NSK will supply information for further rolling bearing types.
