Most of them are still produced in SKF bearing factories in Sweden. More than 80% of the steel used in SKF bearings is provided by SKF steel plants to ensure the high quality of raw materials. All important equipment is designed and assembled by SKF to ensure that the production equipment reaches the highest level!
SKF product introduction
SKF provides standard products with more than 20,000 kinds of bearings. In addition to rolling bearings, the SKF Group also manufactures linear bearings, sliding bearings, bearing housings, ball and roller screws, textile machinery parts, retaining rings, machine tools and various precision machinery parts. Gain extensive experience in the above-mentioned fields, and thus possess the indispensable knowledge and expertise in the development, manufacture and application of various advanced engineering products. The small ones are like miniature bearings weighing only 0.003 grams, up to giant bearings weighing 34 tons each. In addition, SKF also provides a series of bearing maintenance tools, grease and bearing monitoring instruments (SKF bearing heaters, pullers, etc.), in order to enable bearing users to obtain higher benefits and achieve worry-free operation.
The Explorer series bearings, a characteristic product of SKF bearings, have better performance and longer life than any bearing brand currently on the market. They have outstanding performance in design and use. They are among the top scientists and engineers of the SKF Engineering and Research Center in the Netherlands. After years of careful study by the team, SKF Explorer bearings can be identified by the "EXPLORER" engraved on the side of the outer ring of the bearing and the "EXPLORER" logo on the box, but the product number remains unchanged. Yarui strongly recommends EXPLORER Explorer series bearings to you.
