SKF to demonstrate total cost-saving sealing solutions at IFPE

2014 February 25, 14:00 CET

Gothenburg, Sweden, 25 February 2014: SKF will be showing how its knowledge and expertise in developing sealing solutions that will increase system efficiency and save money for customers at IFPE (International Fluid Power Exhibition) 2014. 

Among the innovations on show from SKF will be a number of solutions for the Fluid Power industry. An animation will demonstrate the complex hydraulic systems of an excavator that operate continuously in all conditions driven by the hydraulic pump, highlighting the different bearing configurations and demonstrating a sealing solution in proprietary SKF material.

The exhibits on the stand will also demonstrate how SKF addressed a significant concern for Brevini Fluid Power, cutting the high level of premature seal failures through a new SKF sealing solution. Visitors to the SKF stand can also see the four new fluid system seals for hydraulic cylinders in the SKF range; three new piston seals manufactured in SKF proprietary materials and the new “Best in Class” S1S rod seal.  In addition, the rotary hydraulic manifold display will demonstrate how the critical hydraulic circuits that power the rotational movement of a machine can be protected with SKF sealing solutions.

SKF brings together unique technologies for producing both machined and moulded seals according to customer needs. Whether it is for a development project or to solve a specific customer problem, SKFs capability to produce seals from small to large volume with flexibility and speed offers customers a reliable sealing partner who can support them throughout the life cycle of their equipment.
IFPE, which this year takes place between March 4th-8th, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, is the leading international exposition and technical conference dedicated to the integration of fluid power with other technologies for power transmission and motion control applications. Held every three years, the exposition showcases the newest innovations and expertise. 

Visitors to IFPE will find SKF at stand 81555, where they will meet experts from both the US and from the Global SKF organisation. SKF is also present at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG, which takes place during the same dates, in booth 11621, where we will show solutions for off-highway and mining industries.
