Schaeffler launch new PrecisionDesk app
Latest app designed to check the authenticity of high-precision rotary and linear bearings
SCHAEFFLER have launched a new free app for mobile devices that includes a feature for checking the authenticity of high-precision rotary and linear bearings.
The PrecisionDesk app, which can be used on Android, iOS and Windows mobile operating systems, is designed to help maintenance technicians, fitters and design engineers when selecting bearings or installing components.
It allows 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 itself or on the bearing packaging. App users (smartphone or tablet) can use these data matrix codes to access all of the app’s functions.
A web browser-based solution is currently being developed that will allow customers to make use of all the same functions from their PC using a corresponding hand-held scanner.
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 them using the app, will be available.
For spindle bearings, it is possible to generate bearing-specific electronic data records and, via suitable interfaces, to utilize these in logistics systems.
PrecisionDesk 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 German and English. Other languages will be available in the future.
