Industrial bearing and housing remanufacturing services

Extending the service life of bearings to reduce costs, downtime and environmental impact

Wear, rust, indentations, microcracks… 
Certain application conditions – like contamination or sporadic metal–to-metal contact in the rolling contact zone – can cause all sorts of damage to your bearings. As a result, the service life of a bearing is often shorter than the calculated rating life.The alternative is to apply a controlled remanufacturing process before any major damage or bearing failure occurs. This can substantially prolong the service life of the bearing in question, reducing costs and lead times. And since it requires less energy than manufacturing a new bearing, it is better for the environment as well. 

The typical candidates of industrial bearing remanufacturing are:
  • large size bearings
  • caster bearings
  • backing bearings
  • slewing bearings
SKF is using its new bearings manufacturing standard, processes,equipment, quality assurance, knowledge and competences as the basis for its bearings remanufacturing service. 

The full benefits of adopting the remanufacturing program can be achieved when you also utilize SKF’s predictive maintenance expertise to ensure that you know the status of your plant machinery at all times.
