Ball bearing units

Because of their versatility and cost-effectiveness, ball bearing units are typically used in many industrial applications. Ball bearing units consist of an insert bearing mounted in a housing. An insert bearing is a deep groove ball bearing with a sphered (convex) outside surface and an extended inner ring that includes a mechanism to lock the […]


  Reduce maintenance costs with robust quality chains Mean-time-between-failures (MTBF) is an important measure of reliability, and is critical in power transmission systems. Robust chain drives extend mean-time-between-failures, which reduces maintenance costs. Some chain systems are of inferior quality, having low wear resistance and little ability to withstand harsh conditions such as temperature variation and […]

High performance polyurethane seals for tough environments

SKF has developed a new generation of highly effective and easily maintained shaft seals that can prolong the service life of heavy-duty equipment operating in difficult conditions. From wind turbines to underground mining machinery, shaft seals frequently provide the first line of defense between the external environment and critical bearings and gearbox components. These seals […]

Spanjaard Air Duster

Last year Spanjaard launched its all new Air Duster. Air Duster is formulated specifically to meet the demands of the market for a high pressure gas for cleaning dust and other contaminants from inaccessible areas. The product was designed as a solution to cleaning difficult-to-reach areas of sensitive electronic and electrical equipment including office equipment, […]

DeWALT Flexvolt

XR FLEXVOLT is a range of 54V power tools that offer runtime and performance which has never been seen before – for the first time, professionnal tradesmen can reliably undertake heavy-duty construction applications without the need for mains power. This innovation means that you can have 54V power across a whole range of tools without […]

Portable Induction Heater

The new portable induction heater TWIM 15 from SKF uses medium-frequency technology to heat up roller bearings as well as other ring-shaped, metallic components. This innovative device heats the bearing mounted with an interference-fit onto a shaft, generating up to a 90°C temperature difference between the bearing and shaft, causing the bearing to expand. This […]

Load sensing bearings with fiber optic sensors

Designers can accelerate the design cycle by analysing bearing loads quickly and accurately thanks to the addition of fiber optic based SKF’s Load Sensing Bearings – for pumps and compressors SKF releases the world’s first commercial load sensing bearing based on its proprietary fiber optic sensing technology. A technology, as earlier announced, being part of […]
