The careful use of sophisticated 2D/3D CAD tools, in-house developed computing software and FEM analysis enables the RKB Group to continuously improve bearing quality, reliability and delivery time. The first part of the present article, published in Organi di Trasmissione magazine, is a simple introduction to the preliminary stages of 2D drafting, 3D modeling and calculation of the main coefficients for two spherical roller bearings to be installed on the rack and pinion jacking system of an oil platform. The second part, instead, covers in detail the steps of FEM analysis for the development and validation of the above application.
