Imaging equipment

Applying SKF vision to medical imaging

In medical imaging rooms worldwide, SKF Knowledge Engineering is making linear and rotary motion applications more robust, reliable and ergonomic.

Our expertise extends to nearly all imaging technologies, including CT, SPECT, PET, MRI, Angiography, Mammography, Ultrasound, mobile C-arm and standard x-ray applications. 

For patient tables, SKF engineering support and UL 60601-approved products are enabling low patient entry levels and smoother, safer, more comfortable patient lifting and handling. SKF also supports and optimizes technologies in wall stands, ceiling lifts, catchers, collimators, x- ray tubes and workstations.
