You can find SKF quality products in applications across many industries including aerospace, agriculture, automotive, construction, food and beverage, marine, mining, and more. The reason for this is that SKF products are expertly conceptualized and engineered to perform.
- Where are SKF bearings made?
Founded in 1907 in Gothenburg, Sweden, SKF is now the world’s largest bearing manufacturer with 108 manufacturing units, and 17,000 distributor locations across 130 countries.
- What are the common applications of bearings?
Bearings are used in a wide variety of applications such as in bicycles, ATMs and card readers, electrical motors, commercial blenders, dental hand tools, aviation cargo systems, and many more.
- What are the types of bearings?
There are many different types of bearings, each used for specific purposes and designed to perform in different applications and to carry specific types of loads, radial or thrust. Popular bearing types include plain bearings, roller bearings, ball bearings, fluid bearings, self-aligning ball bearings, deep-groove ball bearings, and more.
- Why use rolling bearings?
Rolling bearings provide high precision and low friction, therefore they enable high rotational speeds while reducing noise, heat, energy consumption, and even wear and tear. They are cost-effective solutions, and exchangeable machine elements that often follow national or international dimension standards.
- How are ball bearings rated?
Ball bearings are manufactured in four standard series– LL00, or extra extra-light; L00, or extra-light; 200, or light; and 300, or medium. Also, ball bearings in these series are fully interchangeable among manufacturers.
- How do you know what type of ball bearing to use for your application?
In choosing a bearing for your application, consider the type, grade, lubricant, any shielding/sealing, and the basic load rating. If the bearing will be subject to shock while stationary, you should consider its static load rating too. Shock loading while operating will also be a factor when it comes to bearing life.
- How do you know if you need to use a roller bearing or a ball bearing?
As a general rule, ball bearings are used at higher speeds and lighter loads than roller bearings usually are. Roller bearings perform better under shock and impact loading, while ball bearings tolerate misalignment better than roller bearings do. Roller bearings can handle heavy combined radial and thrust loads.
