SKF has developed a new bearing family that reduces energy consumption by at least 30% compared to standard ISO products.
The new family will be initially introduced for two types of bearings, deep groove ball bearings and tapered roller bearings. SKF will initially focus on industrial segments where applications exceed 1MW power consumption. Such applications are in railway and transmissions in heavy industry, ships, wind energy, conveyors and extruders. First applications are expected to be in wind turbines.
