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:
Optimized new design
Increased raceway length
Special roller topography
Energy-efficient ball bearings are based on the standard ball bearing range
