Why choose SKF bearings?

What makes SKF bearings stand out from all the other bearings on the market? Here's why we think you should consider choosing SKF the next time you’re looking for a replacement bearing. 

Five reasons why you should be using SKF bearings.

1. Extended service life

Every single business has productivity at its core, looking to extend their maintenance intervals and keep downtime to a minimum. That’s why SKF have spent decades developing their bearings to have the longest possible service life.

SKF bearings have been proven to extend service life when compared to equivalent bearings from other manufacturers. A longer service life means reduced chance of machine breakdown, minimised downtime and enhanced productivity.

2. Options for every application

Whether you’re operating in the stringent food and beverage industry, the depths of the marine industry or the harsh aggregate industry, SKF has a wide range of products to stand up to the demands of your operating environment.

SKF has designed many specialist bearings and components to meet the requirements of every industry. For example, SKF Food Line bearings have been designed with the challenges of the food and beverage industry in mind. This means that these bearings are able to stand up to high pressured washdowns whilst complying with all relevant legislation.

3. Research and development

When you purchase an SKF bearing, you aren’t just buying a bearing. You’re also purchasing over a century of research and development which has gone in to designing and developing every single SKF bearing.

Since 1907, SKF has dedicated time and resources in developing innovative solutions for every industry. Through this innovation, SKF has developed products which deliver reliability, efficiency and sustainability.

4. Warranty

Every SKF bearing come with a warranty for your peace of mind. This means that should your bearing fail prematurely, SKF will perform a root cause analysis on the bearing. If it is found to have failed due to a manufacturing fault, SKF will repair or replace the bearing, taking a weight from your shoulders.

5. Sustainability

Sustainability is at the heart of SKF’s business model. SKF strives to deliver a positive impact to both people and the climate. When you purchase an SKF bearing, you can rest assured in the knowledge that it has been sustainably produced with the aim of delivering efficient performance in your machinery.
