Improve sustainability and reduce costs
Bearing remanufacturing can result in savings of up to 50% of the cost of a new bearing and eliminate 80% of the C02 emissions resulting from the manufacture of a new bearing. In addition to bearings, SKF can also remanufacture housings.
Experience and expertise
SKF has decades of experience in bearing remanufacturing. All work is performed at dedicated state-of-the-art SKF remanufacturing service centres according to rigorous SKF specifications by a global network of specialists.
The work begins with cleaning, degreasing and disassembling the bearings. All components are then inspected. From this inspection, a detailed bearing analysis report is issued. Bearings that are not damaged beyond repair can be restored using appropriate procedures that can include polishing, grinding and component replacement. In fact, a bearing with more than 30% left of its calculated service life can be worth remanufacturing. As a result, the cost savings through remanufacturing can be substantial.
