Mounting, dismounting and bearing care
Rolling bearings are reliable machine elements that can provide long service life, provided they are mounted and maintained properly. Proper mounting requires experience, accuracy, a clean work environment and the appropriate tools.
To promote proper mounting techniques, speed, accuracy and safety, SKF offers a comprehensive assortment of high quality mounting and maintenance products. The assortment includes everything from mechanical and hydraulic tools to bearing heaters and grease. For information about SKF maintenance products, refer to Maintenance products.
Mounting bearings correctly is often more difficult than it appears, especially where large bearings are concerned. To be sure that bearings are mounted and maintained properly, SKF offers seminars and hands-on training courses as part of the SKF Reliability Systems concept. Mounting and maintenance assistance may also be available from your local SKF company or SKF Authorized Distributor.
