The New Modular Actuator Calculator Provides Solutions for Bearing Life & Load Considerations

Engineering_Calculator_ThumbnailWhen trying to figure out the load size for an actuator, many engineers find themselves making guesses for the bearing considerations. This is because the bearings are buried within the actuator, which makes it impossible to determine their exact location.

Well, thanks to a new modular actuator calculator, engineers can stop guessing and receive precise load figures. The German-developed calculator works by simply choosing the desired product, entering its load definitions and allowing the tool to calculate the bearing stress and load to determine the bearing life of the product. The results can be viewed in an easy-to-read, printable format.

Now, if you want a particular product to last five years, all you have to do is plug in a few definitions and the calculator will determine the load necessary to achieve that life expectancy.
