Alignment Tools

Misalignment of shafts, belt drives and chain drives is a major contributor to rotating machinery breakdowns.Accurate alignment can prevent a large number of machinery breakdowns and reduce the number of unplanned stops and loss of production. Accurate alignment can also help to extend the life time of your machines.  In today’s challenging environment of reducing […]

Heaters for mounting and dismounting

Mounting Incorrect methods account for 16% of premature bearing failures SKF Induction heaters utilise advanced power electronics with application specific designs for high performance. As a result, by using an SKF induction heater, the total cost of ownership is often significantly lower. Ergonomics and safety are also an important consideration for operators.  SKF induction heaters […]

Mechanical tools for mounting and dismounting

Mounting Small and medium size bearings are generally cold mounted. Traditional methods can cause forces to be transmitted through the rolling elements, resulting in damage to the raceways. SKF’s mechanical mounting tools help prevent bearing damage during cold mounting. Dismounting Choosing the right puller for the dismounting job is critical. The puller type, and its […]

Hydraulic tools for mounting and dismounting

Mounting Medium and large SKF bearings with a tapered bore are often mounted using hydraulic equipment. SKF tools and techniques enable a controlled and precise way for SKF bearings to be mounted correctly and this helps achieve a long bearing service life. The techniques employed can also be used for other annular components such as […]
