New app simplifies mounting of bearings
SKF Bearing Assist is a new mobile app that enables quick, correct and easy mounting of bearings.
It’s a tool that can turn new recruits into experts.

The app contains detailed product information, including bearing designation, bearing type (with visuals) and suffix descriptions, as well as dimensions and illustrations. The mounting instructions cover bearings with basic designs that are included in the standard assortment. Information such as clearance reduction and drive-up method calculations, together with recommendations on lubrication, can save time and effort when fitting bearings.
Once a bearing has been mounted, this can be recorded in the app with details such as date, specific asset, location and work order. Details of which specific bearing has been mounted can also be added. Results can instantly be exported as a PDF, reducing the time required to produce a mounting report.
