Cooper Bearings, an SKF Group company,Kings Lynn, UK, and Norfolk, Va., has equipped its website with an interactive selector for choosing split roller bearings.

“This user-friendly selector makes it easy for engineers and designers to search our database for split roller bearings that meet their particular needs, and download 3D drawings,” said Martin Caspall, Cooper Bearings engineering manager. “It also calculates bearing fatigue life for a single shaft size or for multiple sizes.”

The 3D models are available in several formats, including STEP and Autodesk Inventor.

The new bearing selector — accessed by clicking “Product Selector” at the bottom of the Cooper homepage — asks the user to specify bore size (one size or a range), speed, radial and axial loads, and other key criteria.  It then searches the range of Cooper split-to-the-shaft roller bearings and displays those that meet the criteria.  The user selects one and reviews the available housings (pillow blocks, flanges, take-up units, etc.) and seals, and the selector presents a 3D model for download.
