Since the invention of the advanced self-aligning ball 100 years ago, SKF has evolved into a knowledge-based company offering its customers rare solutions in five areas of technical competence. These include bearings, bearing units, and seals, but of course, extend to other areas, including lubricants and lubrication systems, which play a critical role in the life of bearings in many applications; mechatronics, which integrates mechanical and electronic knowledge into systems to produce more efficient linear motion and sensing systems; and a full range of services, from design and logistics support to condition monitoring and dependability systems.
SKF's business has three main divisions: Industrial, Automotive, and Services. Each business unit serves a global market, focusing on customers and industries relevant to its business.
SKF was founded in 1907 and, from the beginning, has placed great emphasis on product quality, technology development, and market development. The group has invested heavily in technical research and product development. It has continued to make inventions and creations, setting new standards in bearing technology and introducing new products to the bearing market. Despite this expansion, SKF remains a leader in the design, production, and market development of rolling bearings, as well as in complementary models and products such as seals, and has maintained an increasingly important position in the markets for linear motion products, high-precision aerospace bearings, machine tool spindles, and plant maintenance services.
|SKF bearing types||SKF bearings Features|
|SKF deep groove ball bearings||Particularly versatile. Suitable for high or ultra-high-speed applications with both radial and axial loads. Features ruggedness and low maintenance requirements, while various designs are available.|
