SKF S2M Magnetic Bearings leverage more than 35 years of leadership in active magnetic bearing technology.

The first compressor equipped with an SKF S2M Magnetic Bearing, commissioned in 1985, is still running. Since then, we have partnered with many of the world’s largest and most advanced companies to harness the power of levitation to address the need for high speed and high reliability in the most demanding operating environments.

More than 120 000 turbo molecular vacuum pumps (primarily for the semiconductor industry) now operate with SKF S2M Magnetic Bearings/PM motor components. In addition, SKF experience includes more than 1 000 references in the oil and gas industry, including upstream, midstream and downstream processes. SKF is now pioneering the use of SKF S2M Magnetic Bearings for the first Natural Gas centrifugal compressors directly laid on the seabed at the Asguard subsea gas compression system in the Norwegian Sea.

With a worldwide presence, including 300 persons dedicated to servicing our customers, SKF is the world market leader in the development, manufacture and sale of active magnetic bearings and magnetic bearing control technologies. We look forward to working with your team.
