SKF SimPro Quick

Quick performance evaluation for your bearing arrangements

3D model SimPro
SKF SimPro Quick is a single-shaft bearing simulation software that is developed to quickly evaluate the design of bearing arrangements and their field performance, based on relevant application requirements and conditions. The tool aims to provide you with more SKF engineering knowledge and autonomy, in order to accelerate your design process and optimize your choice of bearings.
Main features
  • New Platform and Intuitive stepwise graphical interface
  • Improved guidance, warning system and 3D visualization & Animation
  • One shaft, up to 10 bearings with Comprehensive modelling capabilities of components (housing, gears, lubricant, spacers, springs…)
  • Full Range of SKF bearings using product data from SKF rolling bearing catalogue
  • Intuitive Bearing selection wizard
  • Various analysis and output options for bearing arrangements performance evaluation
  • Calculation of bearing load, loaded zone, contact stress, bearing life, friction, frequencies, shaft and  housing deflection, bearing stiffness matrix, grease re-lubrication interval, grease life
  • Calculation of basic rating life, SKF rating life and  modified reference rating life (according to ISO/TS 16281:2008)
Main benefits

Increases speed and flexibility in your machine design cycle:

  • With SKF SimPro Quick you directly tap into SKF’s engineering knowledge and detailed product performance data
  • You will be using the same tool as our application engineers, allowing faster and easier interaction and support
  • Runs on your local PC; no need to upload your confidential (new) design model data to SKF
  • Allows you to do more and faster design iterations before the design freeze
  • Generates a detailed design verification report in one click

Intuitive and detailed evaluation of SKF bearing arrangement performance based on:

  • Intuitive step-by-step modelling interface
  • Allows for detailed application requirements and operating conditions to be considered
  • Offers standard and advanced life models
