Better control of manufacturing processes
SKF’s commitment towards zero waste and zero defects has led to developing advanced technologies for inspecting products and components. By adding intelligence into the inspection loop, SKF can today use the information generated to better control and verify the manufacturing processes. This can be used by applying non-destructive testing technologies like vision systems, eddy current, ultrasonic and other technologies built on magnetic properties of heat-treated steel. By combining these with the use of artificial intelligence, it is possible to detect material defects and improve process control, as well as define and predict product properties.
