GWJ Enhances E-Assistant Software with Roller Bearing Calculation Module
May 23, 2018
GWJ Technology GmbH, headquartered in Braunschweig, Germany, is pleased to announce that the web-based calculation software eAssistant - the engineering assistant - has been updated with a new version of the rolling bearing calculation module. The latest update features new functions and new SKF bearing data.
The eAssistant (in use worldwide for more than 15 years)is a web-based software for the mechanical engineering. The software allows for a fast, easy and professional calculation, design and optimization of an extensive range of machine elements.
In order to keep the customers up-to-date of the latest bearing data, it was agreed with the well-known bearing manufacturer SKF that a regular update of the bearing data would be added to the eAssistant software. Updated SKF bearing data from 2018 are now available.
The new release also adds SKF Explorer bearings. The Explorer bearings are marked with "*" which makes it much easier for customers to select the right bearing. A new filtering functionality called "Popular item" has also been introduced. This function is supported only by the bearing manufacturer SKF. Popular items have a high level of availability and generally provide a cost-effective solution.
If a bearing is selected from the table, the user gets some additional bearing details, such as dynamic and static load rating or the fatigue limiting load, displayed below the bearing table. There is also a new direct link to open the SKF catalogue. By clicking the button SKF online catalogue or double-clicking the bearing, the user gets instant online access to SKF´s product data sheets with all technical details. The user can also export the data sheet as PDF. The new information "SKF Explorer" and "Popular item" is added to the calculation report under the section "Bearing comment."
