App checks authenticity of rolling bearings and more

Schaeffler is launching PrecisionDesk, a new free app for mobile devices that includes a feature for checking the authenticity of high-precision rotary and linear bearings. The app, which is available for Android, iOS and Windows mobile operating systems, is designed to help maintenance technicians, fitters and design engineers when selecting bearings or installing components.

A new feature of the app is that it enables users to verify the authenticity of rolling bearings marked with a data matrix code. A check is made by simply scanning the data matrix code on the bearing or on the bearing packaging with the smartphone or tablet camera. A web browser-based system is also being developed that will enable customers to make use of all the same functions from their PC using a handheld scanner.

Applications for high-precision rotary and linear bearings include machine tools, textile and printing machinery, as well as food processing and packaging plants, and factory automation. In the future, options such as directly accessing bearing-specific measurement records for spindle and rotary table bearings and storing these for documentation purposes, or sending these using the app, will be available. For spindle bearings, it is also possible to generate bearing-specific electronic data records and, via suitable interfaces, to utilise these in logistics systems, for example. The app therefore offers Schaeffler customers the opportunity to monitor their own bearing inventory and to increase quality levels in the bearing mounting process by efficiently pairing bearings with shafts/housings.

Catalogue information, additional product information and the Schaeffler library can also be directly accessed using the app, which is currently available in English and German. Other languages will be available in the future.
