Find the right bearing fit with new igus Fit Calculator app
Published: 16 May 2017 - Jack Cheeseman
igus Fit Calculator is a new app for iOS and Android that enables engineers to calculate dimensions and tolerances for bearings according to ISO 286. This free app, which can be easily found and downloaded from a smartphone or tablet’s app store, is very simple to use and requires no registration.
By selecting the nominal bearing size (between 0.01 and 500mm) and required tolerance grades for the housing bore and shaft, the igus Fit Calculator app calculates the dimensions and tolerances instantly. The maximum and minimum dimensions and the associated type of fit (clearance or interference fit) are also provided.
A key benefit of this streamlined app is that it can be used offline, which is particularly useful when working in closed machine or safety zones. In addition, users can swap the units at any time between metric and imperial systems.
Detailed help regarding the calculations of the tolerance field is provided, as well as direct contact with an igus bearing specialist.
