The SKF Connection
SKF New Zealand and Barmac recently celebrated the manufacture of 1,000 bearing cartridges over two Barmac models.
SKF helped design the original Barmac bearing cartridges in the 1970s, and has become re-involved with the company over the past 10 years.
That original bearing cartridge design has remained fundamentally unchanged. SKF supplies one cylindrical roller bearing and one deep groove ball bearing per machine. This includes bearing types NU320, NU2212, NU2320, NU2326 and 6312, 6315, 6320 and 6326.
SKF New Zealand’s sales and marketing manager, Steve Haines, says that SKF works very closely with the Barmac manufacturers. “This involves close coordination in areas such as inventory management, staff training in bearing fitting and analysis of bearing failure and the like,” he says.
“SKF New Zealand’s engineers also work closely on the Barmac cartridge design and have worked on projects to improve bearing lubrication and to minimise the risk of bearing failure.”
