Magnetic systems

Rotating without contact

Since 1976 and the creation of its subsidiary S2M, SKF takes pride in being the world pioneer in the field of active magnetic bearings and high speed permanent magnet technologies for electrical motors.
SKF’s Magnetic Systems solutions address high speed, offering outstanding reliability, and exceptional energy performance.

SKF is the world market leader in developing, manufacturing, promoting and selling active magnetic bearings and high speed motors, and SKF technology is in use in numerous applications.

On the one hand, more than 120,000 turbo molecular vacuum pumps (primarily for the semicon industry) now operate with SKF magnetic system components.

On the other hand, over 700 turbo machines on SKF magnetic bearings are in use in Natural Gas upstream, midstream and downstream processes. SKF is also pioneering again with magnetic bearings for the first Natural Gas centrifugal compressors directly laid on the seabed.

We want to share with you our passion for technology and for the wide opportunities it offers to such diverse industry applications.

SKF stands ready to serve you with world-class products and competencies, intellectual resources, and the vision to help you innovate and succeed.
