Utilizing High Tech
ENSIM ™ – Engine Simulation Software
King’s R&D department utilizes advanced ENSIM™ software to analyze and simulate bearings under variable conditions using a wide range of equipment. The ENSIM™ includes thermodynamic, dynamic and elasto-hydrodynamic analysis.
This system allows us to create and test all new bearing designs and determine the optimal configuration for that application. King is able to analyze engines after real-world use to improve bearing designs for each specific engine independently. We are then able to leverage this information by applying this data to our aftermarket bearing designs as well.
