Engineered products

Based on our standard bearings and bearing units, these products incorporate special features for use in specific applications. Properly applied, these make costly customized bearings/units unnecessary and, because they are generally available from stock, they can also greatly reduce lead times.

You can find the products you need by:
  • designation or dimensions: Enter details in the Product search widget on the right.
  • type: Select from the list of product tables.

Engineered products include:

Backing bearings

Backing bearings have been specially developed for cold rolling mills of the cluster type, but can also be used for other applications, such as straightening or bending machines.

Sensor bearing units

SKF sensor bearing units are used to accurately monitor the status of rotating or linear components.

Hybrid bearings

These bearings have good emergency running properties and can cope with extreme conditions and high speeds. Their inherent resistance to the passage of electric current means that they are ideal for electric motors and electrically powered tools.

INSOCOAT bearings

These bearings have an insulating coating of aluminium oxide on the external surfaces of the inner or outer ring. They can be used in difficult electrical applications, with no additional design requirements, and they can also be drop-in replacements for conventional bearings in existing applications.

High temperature bearings and bearing units

SKF bearings and bearing units contain graphite-based lubricant effective at temperatures up to 350 °C (660 °F), making these products very suitable for applications in kiln trucks, roller hearth furnaces, and bakeries.

NoWear coated bearings

These bearings have been surface treated to withstand arduous operating conditions, such as zero or very light loads, or boundary lubrication conditions.

Bearings with Solid Oil

For applications where conventional grease or oil lubrication methods are not adequate or practical.

Polymer ball bearings

These bearings are resistant to corrosion and to many chemicals. They are lightweight and quiet running. Polymer ball bearings require no lubricant.

Indexing roller units

SKF indexing roller units are based on double row or four-row full complement cylindrical roller bearings. They have been developed for applications in continuous furnaces of sintering and pelletizing plants.
