Escalator drive systems
Keep them moving longer, for less energy
Safe, reliable drive system performance has always been an essential demand for escalator operators. If the engine and gearbox aren’t moving forward together, then neither is the escalator. Given global energy usage and the industry’s sustainability trends, today’s operators also want drive systems that are lighter, more energy-efficient, and easier to maintain and lubricate.
SKF can help
Robust bearing, sealing and housing solutions can support system reliability and power density. Our condition monitoring solutions can help detect critical bearing vibrations and failures, step chain elongation and other potentially serious issues. Whether you’re designing a new system or upgrading an existing escalator, SKF solutions can help you understand equipment condition and save money.
