Mechanical Power Transmission

Sensor Bearing protects against power surge damage.

December 12, 2014

Serving as ready-to-mount, plug-and-play unit incorporating shielded sensor and deep groove ball bearing, SKF Sensor Bearing is equipped with EMC filter, offering protection against potential damage to bearing's sensitive electronics from power surges or electric discharges, particularly in AC electric motor applications. Depending on application, bearing can measure range of operating conditions, such as speed, position, and direction of shaft, among others. Read More

Machine Tool Monitor offers active monitoring and data logging.

December 11, 2014

As stand-alone unit or integrated into control system, SKF Machine Tool Observer MTx connects all operating-parameter sensors to actively monitor, observe, and log performance history of machine tool spindles, grinding machines, or other rotating equipment. Accumulated condition levels, with continuous recording and long-term storage of critical data, allow intelligent monitoring. MCU-based electronics assembly with internal memory can connect to up to 6 different types of various sensors for monitoring multiple parameters. Read More

Material Handling & Storage

Caster Roll Line Units handle extreme slab casting conditions.

November 26, 2014

Featuring self-contained, fully sealed, modular design, SKF ConRo Units integrate bearings, patented sealing system, housings, grease, roll bodies, and water connections to serve as complete packages, eliminating need for re-lubrication. Units protect bearings from ingress of water and contaminants; promote proper lubrication between bearing roller elements and raceways; and minimize lubricant degradation and metal-to-metal contact, wear, and corrosion of bearings.

Self-Leveling Chocks eliminate soft foot.

October 24, 2014

Self-leveling and height-adjustable, SKF Vibracon Chocks enable accurate mounting of rotating machinery to base frames, steel foundations, or plates while eliminating improper contact between machine casing and baseplate used to support it. Mechanical chocks compensate for angular misalignment of up to 4° between mounting foundation and bottom of machine foot. In addition to standard and extended chocking heights from 30–250 mm, units come in low-profile versions from 20–45 mm. Read More

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
