Measurement and monitoring

Key to improved machine operating and cost-efficiency

A machine operator who has current information about machine performance can take the proper corrective actions – before machine failure and costly, unplanned downtime occurs. SKF has several condition monitoring solutions for machine tools that can help.

SKF online condition monitoring and crash protection systems provide advanced warning of developing machine tool spindle problems such as bearing damage, imbalance, and lubrication issues. Monitoring this real-time data can virtually eliminate unplanned downtime and allow operators to conduct maintenance based on need rather than time-schedules. An SKF data logging system can be integrated with the machine's control system for immediate shutdown or unloading.
