Inspection routines are managed in the SKF Cloud and can seamlessly accessed through the Data Collect app. It’s easy to get started with low entry level setup costs. Typical use cases in wind industry are inspection routines for turbines, audits, basic condition monitoring with bluetooth vibration sensor and many more.

    Also on display will be SKF’s latest spherical roller bearings for wind turbine main shafts, a design adaptation of SKF's existing heavy duty bearings that features a significant weight reduction, optimised internal geometry and improved lubrication capabilities to ensure lower contact pressures and enhanced load carrying capacity.

    In addition to showcasing its all-encompassing and proven sector capabilities at this year's WindEurope exhibition and conference, SKF will also take the opportunity afforded by this major European wind power event to demonstrate its unique online Wind Farm Management Blog, which supports customers with key industry insights and knowledge on trends, challenges, and innovations.

    Visitors to the booth will also discover more about SKF’s new large-size bearing test facility, which was inaugurated this year in Schweinfurt, Germany. The €40m Sven Wingquist Test Centre is the first of its kind in the world that is able to test large size bearings under actual operating conditions.
