SKF

SKF has been a leading global technology provider since 1907. Our fundamental strength is the ability to continuously develop new technologies – then use them to create products that offer competitive advantages to our customers. We achieve this by combining hands-on experience in over 40 industries with our knowledge across the SKF technology platforms: bearings and units, seals, mechatronics, services and lubrication systems. Our success is based on this knowledge, our people, and our commitment to SKF Care principles. The focus of SKF’s technology development today is to reduce the environmental impact of an asset during its lifecycle, both in our own and our customers’ operations. The SKF BeyondZero product portfolio is the latest example of what SKF has to offer in this area.

Our Company

We achieve this by combining hands-on experience in over 40 industries with our knowledge across the SKF technology platforms: bearings and units, seals, mechatronics, services and lubrication systems. Our success is based on this knowledge, our people, and our commitment to SKF Care principles.

The focus of SKF’s technology development today is to reduce the environmental impact of an asset during its lifecycle, both in our own and our customers’ operations. The SKF BeyondZero product portfolio is the latest example of what SKF has to offer in this area.

Concrete energy savings

Cement producers are under intense pressure to improve productivity and reduce costs and environmental impact. The cement making process is a large consumer of electricity and fuel.

To help solve their environmental and financial challenges, SKF engineer Keith Meyers applies SKF’s life cycle management approach to the manufacturing process. The results are impressive.

One cement producer reduced energy usage by 8%, which is equal to the annual electric consumption of 18,000 average European households, and increased Overall Equipment Effectiveness by 12%.

This is a great example of what we call Knowledge Engineering. And yet another way of how we apply our know-how by utilizing our wide range of products and services to help increase efficiency, save energy and reduce costs.

Dry facts about bottling

Conveyor lines in bottling plants are usually lubricated with a mix of water and lubricants. Thousands of liters of water are contaminated and wasted every day.

But SKF engineer Frédéric Rousseau has a smart solution, using no water at all. SKF Dry Lubrication Systems can save 90 m³ water per bottling line each month.

This is a great example of what we call Knowledge Engineering. And yet another way of how we apply our know-how by utilizing our wide range of products and services to help increase efficiency, save energy and reduce environmental impact.

A wide assortment of plain bearings, rod ends and bushings are also available.

The design and material variants for these bearings are quite extensive.

Units

SKF bearing units typically consist of a bearing, seal, lubricant and shaft locking mechanism. The units are preassembled and adjusted at the factory. These ready to mount units are available with either ball or roller bearings.
In addition to standard all steel units, SKF has more focused standard products – which target a particular industry – like the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries where, for example, special materials, lubricants, seals and housings are needed.

Housings

To accommodate the high performance characteristics of SKF bearings, SKF designs and manufactures a full line of bearing housings and housing seals. These housings and seals are well known for their quality and durability. In addition to their unique design features, which simplify mounting, alignment and relubrication, SKF housings are precision machined so that the incorporated bearing can realize its full service life.
