    SKF has released a new mining, mineral processing and cement industries capabilities catalogue to give an insight into the company’s products and services for the sectors. Included in the publication are SKF’s world-class bearings, sealing and lubrication solutions and reliability services, which will be showcased at the bauma 2016 trade fair (Munich, 11 – 17 April).

    Gothenburg, Sweden, 12 April 2016: SKF has launched a new capabilities catalogue to highlight its comprehensive range of solutions for optimising and maximising machinery service life in the mining, mineral processing and cement industries. The publication brings together a wealth of expertise and knowledge to form a single reference source of information about the vast and varied range of SKF products and services for applications across the sectors.

    Created by industry experts, the new 88-page catalogue includes the latest information on SKF’s experience in the mining, mineral processing and cement industries and explores the options available for enhancing the efficiency of rotating machinery. For example, end-users, original equipment manufacturers and consultants alike can discover the many bearing and sealing products available to help increase production and reduce energy consumption. Many of these, such as the SKF Explorer spherical roller bearings, will be on display at the bauma 2016 trade fair.

    In addition, the publication provides guidance on how SKF solutions can optimise machine life cycles through effective lubrication, maintenance and condition monitoring services to cut the total cost of ownership and improve worker safety in the sectors. The SKF asset management offerings are proven to help firms reduce downtime and maintenance cost to increase overall profitability, while safeguarding the environment.

    The SKF solutions for the mining, mineral processing and cement industries publication is particularly easy to navigate and makes product identification simple. It includes a feature, on pages six to 33, that examines 12 industry applications and highlights some specific solutions for each, as well as a chapter, on pages 34 to 37, dedicated to overcoming common challenges, such as contamination, high maintenance costs and lost productivity, with a remedy for every issue. Meanwhile, there is a cross-reference chart, on pages eight and nine, which allows the reader to find the most ideal SKF solution for each type of machinery and the latter half of the catalogue, from page 40 onwards, features each solution organised by type for quick reference.

    “The launch of this brand new catalogue demonstrates that SKF has a very broad offering for the industry,” says Thibaut Leconte, SKF’s Global Applications Engineering Specialist for Mining. “We can now show in a single reference source that we provide a comprehensive and diverse range of proven solutions that help mining, mineral processing and cement industry professionals to get the very best from vital machinery, while lowering the total cost of ownership and boosting operational performance.”

    The new mining, mineral processing and cement industries catalogue is available in English, either from SKF sales centres or as a download from the online Knowledge Centre library here.
