Real change through simplicity

Sometimes the most innovative ideas turn out to be the simplest. This was definitely the case for SKF Product Manager Jan Ruiter and his team when they developed an electronically timed cylinder lubrication solution for marine propulsion systems. By increasing lubrication on the most highly-stressed engine parts and delivering more accurate application, Lube oil consumption, running costs and CO2 emissions were drastically reduced.

“I have enjoyed a long career at SKF. One of the reasons behind this is probably the fact that my job gives me the freedom to express my ideas, no matter how unexpected – or in this case simple – they might be. The fact our customers and the environment ultimately benefit too is the only motivation I need to keep innovating.”
