Mechanical Power Transmission

Precision Bearings are available with customization.

October 20, 2014

Supporting multiple customization options, SKF super-precision bearings with 40–300 mm ODs feature designs and materials that increase speed and load-carrying capacity for machine tool applications. Specific customizations include pre-loading of precision spindle bearings, modifying angular contact and ball screw support bearings, converting rolling elements from standard bearing steel to ceramic balls, optimizing greasing, grinding notches, and substituting or redesigning bearing cages.

Mechanical Components & Assemblies

Rotating Shaft Sleeves are not prone to cracking.

September 24, 2014

Used with radial shaft seals in rotating machinery, SKF Speedi-Sleeves resolve micro-cracking issues typically associated with chrome-plated sleeves. These sealing solutions, combining stainless steel base material with non-chrome surface finish, facilitate/accelerate replacement of worn sealing surfaces without requiring machine disassembly and subsequent shaft regrinding. Installed on shafts without using special equipment, products enable machinery to be returned to service within minutes.

Fasteners & Hardware

Spherical Washers optimize bolt mounting of machinery.

August 7, 2014

Promoting optimal performance in industrial, marine, and other heavy-duty bolted joint applications, Type SW standard height (2.36 in.) and Type SWLP low profile (0.79–1.34 in.) SKF Spherical Washers reduce likelihood of bolt relaxation by distributing bolt tension evenly. These all-spherical, 2-piece washers automatically adjust under compression to compensate for up to 4° of angular deviations. Construction is of high-grade alloy steel with corrosion protection surface treatment. Read More

Test & Measuring Instruments

Portable IR Thermometer enables measurement from safe distance.

August 7, 2014

Able to take photos and videos that show measurements, SKF TKTL 40 lets operators safely ascertain surface temperatures of equipment while enabling readings to be reviewed/shared. Dual laser sighting and distance-to-spot ratio of 50:1 lend to accurate surface temperature readings of small areas. Where direct contact temperature measurement may be applicable, unit is supplied with K-type probe connection. Features include backlit display, data logging function, and LED illuminator. Read More

Polyurethane Seal protects turbine bearings from contaminants.

August 5, 2014

Manufactured from polyurethane material exhibiting resistance to wear, abrasion, UV radiation, and ozone, SKF axial excluder seal (HRC1) comes in standard solid and split versions for shaft sizes from 1–3 m and offers alternative to rubber seals in wind turbine applications. Sealing lip helps reduce bending while minimizing contact area, friction, and wear; flexibility and engineering geometry allow axial displacement of + 2 mm; and integrated grooves keep sealing edge properly lubricated.

High-Temperature Bearing Units are self-lubricating and drip-free.

July 11, 2014

Intended for continuous baking ovens, SKF® high-temperature bearing units have graphite internal cage that delivers required lubrication. Drip-free performance eliminates need for grease cleanup and helps contribute to HACCP compliance. Rated to 662°F, units achieve uninterrupted service life up to 40,000 hr. Supplied as pillow block, 2- or 4-bolt flange, or for drop-in installation, housings consist of corrosion-resistant phosphate coating over zinc chromate cast iron. Read More

Test & Measuring Instruments, Sensors, Monitors & Transducers

Laser-Based Sensor enables non-contact vibration measurement.

June 18, 2014

Delivering optimal results on every measurement surface regardless of environmental conditions, MSL-7000 series measures vibration and structure-borne noise from fans, electric motors, and pumps. Design employs contactless velocity proportional sensor and is suited for process-integrated, end of line acoustic inspections of noise-critical equipment. Covering acoustic measurements form 0.2 Hz to 22 kHz, this laser vibrometer integrates into manufacturing line and existing control systems. Read More

Coated Bearings promote wind turbine reliability, performance.

June 16, 2014

Used in new installations or as replacement upgrades, SKF black oxide bearings add surface layer of protection to promote wind turbine reliability and performance. Coating can be specified for all types of critical bearings in wind turbine systems to withstand varying temperatures, speeds, and loads as well as resist contaminants, moisture, and chemicals. Up to 15 different immersion steps create thin surface layer delivering performance upgrade for bearing types and sizes in wind turbines. Read More
