Editor’s note: This article comes from the SKF literature, The power of lubrication, that details the product offerings of the new company.
Studies show that half of all bearing failures are caused by lubrication issues, whether the result of poor lubrication, the wrong type of lubricant, or contamination of the lubricant by water, air, dirt or particles. The right lubrication equipment can provide new opportunities to increase profitability by reducing costs to operate machinery,
improving reliability and safety, extending service intervals, and optimizing manpower resources.
With the merging of SKF and Lincoln product portfolios, the companies have created the Lubrication Business Unit. Drawing on the history and core expertise of both brands, SKF now offers the industry’s widest range of SKF oil-based and Lincoln grease-based lubrication equipment. This means users now have one resource for advanced lubrication devices for almost any friction-related application. The jointed product lines provide everything from manual and single-point lubricators, to the most advanced centralized and automatic lubrication systems on the market.
SKF knowledge of the benefits of proper lubrication, enhanced through the acquisition of leading lubrication companies over the past decade, has made SKF a global leader in automatic lubrication technologies.
The company’s in-depth application experience, as well as engineering partnerships with original equipment manufacturers, gives a unique perspective on how complex systems operate – and how to optimize lubrication to achieve results that are efficient and cost-effective.
