SKF rope sheaves pay off with 195% ROI
The SKF solutionWorking closely with mill technicians, SKF engineers analyzed the problem and concluded that the bearings clearly failed because of inadequate lubrication and corrosion damage. They replaced the problem equipment with rope sheave units from SKF.
The resultUnplanned downtime was significantly reduced, enabling the mill to schedule planned stops for less urgent and routine maintenance. In addition, the work floor became a much safer place because of the unique locking facility of the SKF sheaves.
