Erwin Weis, Global Manager – SKF Asset Management Services
SKF 8th Annual Wind Farm Management Conference
The ISO 31000 (2009) / ISO Guide 73:2002 definition of risk is the “effect of uncertainty on objectives”. How can SKF reduce the effect and uncertainty and help maintenance organizations to prevent machine downtime and keep uptime high? New technology sensing directly on the bearing, enables to monitor damages from the first microscopic effect as it is happening. With this information, customers can take remedial action to reduce the reason for damage in the bearing – adding lubricant, mitigating transient overloads, etc. Combining this new SKF technology with SKF’s expert knowledge, will provide deep insight into the machine health and support the decision making of maintenance organizations, on how to prioritize and optimize their resources.
