Hannover Messe 2015

Power the future

Two years ago, SKF returned to Hannover Messe to “Release the Power” of SKF knowledge engineering. The SKF stand included interactive displays of innovative SKF technologies at work in a wide range of industrial applications, from wind energy and steel making to machine tool and mining. In addition, attendees were introduced to SKF Insight, a revolutionary step forward in the field of real-time condition monitoring and bearing health management.

At Hannover Messe 2015, SKF’s goal was to present the next generation of technologies that will “Power the Future.” Solutions presented embody all of SKF’s core competencies, including bearings, seals, lubrication, mechatronics and expert services that bring all of these to our customers worldwide.

Many of the displays demonstrated the power of combining SKF core competencies in a single application, enabling previously unachievable levels of precision, reliability, efficiency and sustainability. From the power of magnetic bearings for compressors to integrated bearing and sensorized units for rail, SKF displays at Hannover Messe 2015 showcased how SKF knowledge engineering will help Power the Future of industrial technology.

SKF Encompass Field Performance Programme


All bearings look good when they are brand new. But in reality, they don’t perform the same in the field. The SKF Field Performance Programme addresses the factors that impact bearing life in real-world applications. At the heart of the programme is a new bearing life model that will enable more realistic life predictions, and new calculation tools that can help you select bearings with greater precision and confidence.

SKF Insight

Initially launched at Hannover Messe 2013, SKF Insight is now in its next phase – trial testing in actual real-world applications, including wind energy and railways. Learn how SKF Insight will move condition monitoring from bearing damage detection to bearing damage prevention through the use of self-powered, wireless sensors embedded within or close to the bearing.
