Experience the SKF R&D labs, where we fight friction and wear

Improved energy efficiency and cost reduction can be achieved by downsizing machines, increasing speeds and loads. As a result, machines are subject to higher stress levels. Bearings are of course no exception from these trends, highly contributing to the overall performance. Accommodating those increasingly higher stresses while ensuring a high level of reliability is a difficult assignment for bearings.
