Engineering excellence with NSK precision bearings

Software users can easily do technical calculations using NSK's software.

NSK will begin providing rolling bearing data to MESYS and KISSsoft, two industry leading companies that develop technical calculation software for engineers engaged in machinery design

The integration of NSK bearing data will accelerate the design process through quick and easy bearing analysis, reducing the time taken to select bearings.

In response to requests from design engineers, NSK rolling bearings will become an integral part of KISSsoft and MESYS technical calculation software programs, both of which are in use worldwide. With data available from 2023, the ability to select NSK rolling bearings in these software suites will enhance customer convenience and satisfaction.

KISSsoft AG, 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 AG 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.

Deep groove ball bearings, angular contact ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, tapered roller bearings, and spherical roller bearings are the first five bearing types for which NSK will supply data. Software users can easily do technical calculations involving gears, housings, or shafts, for example, by calling up NSK bearing information from the database. Additionally, users will be able to ascertain parameters like bearing service life and surface pressure.

Crucially, NSK guarantees the supply of optimal machine design calculations by having the ability to update the data it gives at any moment. NSK will provide information on further rolling bearing types in the future.

NSK Europe Ltd. is the European organisation of the Tokyo-based bearing manufacturer NSK, which provides solutions for the industrial and automotive suppliers.
