As a complement to our bearings SKF supplies a wide assortment of bearing accessories like adapter sleeves, withdrawal sleeves and lock nuts.
Adapter and withdrawal sleeves are used to locate bearings with tapered bore on plain or stepped shafts. They facilitate bearing mounting and dismounting and, in many cases, simplify bearing arrangement design.
Lock nuts are used to locate bearings and other components onto a shaft or adapter sleeve and facilitate mounting and dismounting. SKF supplies a wide assortment of lock nuts. SKF lock nuts are easy to install, do not damage the shaft and provide effective locking.
Since seals and bearing housings are in separate sections, the accessories covered in this section include the sleeves and lock nuts used to locate and lock bearings in position on a shaft.
