Bearing Load Calculator
Bearing Load Calculator Excel Spreadsheet
This design engineering spreadsheet calculates the loads on linear motion bearings. It takes forces applied at the cutting tool and bearing locations (X,Y,Z) as inputs. The X-Y center of the work volume, at the table height, is defined as the origin. All dimensions in inches. All forces in lbf. NOTE: If a bearing is not used (e.g. Bearing 4 in 3-bearing stage), clear cells rather than zeroing.
