Lubrication and seals

Minimizing the effects of friction

Heat generation from friction is a constant threat to production accuracy and machine tool lifecycles. SKF offers a range of lubrication and sealing solutions to minimize the potentially harmful effects of heat.

These include customized centralized lubrication systems as well as automatic, multi-point lubrication for drives, bearings and auxiliary equipment. SKF also works with customers to optimize lubrication system design and lubricant type according to application. The same is true for SKF sealing solutions, which include plastic and rubber seals, rotary and hydraulic seals, all available in standard or custom designs.

Combined, SKF lubrication and sealing solutions can help eliminate the risk of over or under-lubrication, protect against contamination, and ultimately cut maintenance and operating costs.
