Energy efficient bearing and steel ball

One of the most important goals today is reduced energy consumption in order to save the environment. Reducing friction is one possibility to reach this goal. SKF has developed a new ball bearing design which opens up the potential to reduce friction up to 30%. This new product line is specifically targeted at our customers’ need to reduce the energy consumption in bearing applications.

The main features of this solution are the following:
  • Reduced weight
  • Optimized new design
  • Increased raceway length
  • Special roller topography
  • Energy-efficient ball bearings are based on the standard ball bearing range
