NOTTINGHAM, UK, May 7, 2020 – Romax Technology, the leading provider of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software and services for electro-mechanical drivetrain design and simulation, today announced that it has collaborated with Nachi-Fujikoshi Corp to expand the bearing catalog portfolio available within its Romax Nexus software platform.
Through this partnership, drivetrain engineers across multiple industries can pick and choose Nachi’s catalog bearings to model drivetrains quickly in their concept and detailed design stages. This is particularly beneficial in specific markets such as off-highway applications, where the low production volume means design engineers are constantly pressured to use catalog bearings rather than special bearings to reduce costs. In automotive applications, production volume often justifies special bearing cost. However, design engineers are pressured to reduce the amount of part-numbers, in order to minimize costs of internal administration, by choosing catalog bearings rather than creating new special bearings.
“We are excited to partner with Nachi to expand our bearing catalog offering” said Andy Poon, CEO of Romax. “Our global customers have already saved millions of dollars by switching from special bearings to catalog bearings, and we have plans to continue to expand our bearing catalog partnership program in the future.”
“We believe that the best way to reach and help more global customers is through the Romax bearing catalog partnership program, and we are already getting some positive feedback from our customers” said Mr. Kawagishi, Chief Engineer of Nachi.
Nachi-Fujikoshi is a global corporation known for its bearings, industrial robots, cutting tools, machine tools, hydraulic equipment and special steels, etc. Nachi-Fujikoshi was founded in 1928 and began manufacturing bearings in 1938. Nachi-Fujikoshi contributes to the expansion in the world of manufacturing by capitalizing on their abilities.
As a comprehensive machinery manufacturer, Nachi-Fujikoshi has the multifaceted operations and technologies to provide various solutions to customers in fields such as automotive, industrial machinery, energy, and infrastructure. For more information, visit http://www.nachi.com.
