Alfa Giulietta, Citroën DS3, Peugeot RCZ, VW Polo - Car of the Year 2010… All part of the SKF aftermarket product range development!

2011 March 19, 08:48 CET



With 2011 underway, vehicle technicians are benefiting from the extensive work that SKF’s dedicated product development team carried out in 2010 and beginning 2011.

All of SKF’s product groups increased in size but it was the number of engine-related products that were developed the most – rising to 3570 references today.

The most significant development on the engine side was the launch of the Freewheel alternator pulley (FAP) range that includes 75 kits (covering many of the top selling vehicles including the VW Polo - Car of the year 2010) and is complimented by 10 Multi-V belt kits including Freewheel alternator pulley (VKMAF) as well as 2 toolset kits (VKN 350 and VKN 351). SKF offers all 3 technologies:

  • overrunning alternator pulleys
  • overrunning alternator decouplers
  • rubber alternator decoupling pulley

The other significant engine range development during 2010 was seen in the auxiliary belts – all Multi-V belts matching the exact OE length. The size of this product group increased by an impressive 64% bringing the total to 959 belts and covering over 80% of the car parc in Europe.

On the wheel-end side, the driveline product range now includes more than 1827 products ranging from CV-joints to driveshafts and boot kits. To fulfill the needs of the markets, SKF also launched a universal boot for light commercial vehicles (in addition to its universal boot for passenger cars).

The wheel bearing product range has reached new heights covering 98% of the car parc in Europe, with 51 brand-new wheel bearing kits being added to a range that now exceeds 1100 references.

Due to the increasing Asian car parc in Europe, SKF has put a lot of effort into launching kits for these applications: over 150 new kits during 2010 resulting in significant growth of business for its customers. SKF is now recognized as a specialist in Asian vehicles and its future ambitions are very high.

SKF’s Business and Product development manager, Michael Bohm has said:  “to continuously widen our product range, is an important driver for growth for both SKF and our customers. It is extremely important to offer a comprehensive range of products in our portfolio and to be fast to launch new kits to the marketplace. Our ambition is to launch about 1,000 new kits annually for the global automotive aftermarket.”
