Jack-up test on propulsion shaft
As a leader in rolling bearing technology, SKF has a comprehensive knowledge about bearings and a deep understanding about bearing noise and their root causes.

Bearing vibration analysis is mandatory in SKF production processes and this equipment can also be used for bearing inspection during maintenance and refurbishment activities and for root-cause analysis of noisy applications.

Unreliable bearing performance can be caused by:
  • waviness
  • local defects
  • dirt particle
  • roughness
  • form error
  • cage problems

All of these bearing quality issues can be tested and detected with the SKF bearing vibration analyser. SKF has comprehensive knowledge and advanced equipment to quantify and trace the reasons for vibrations.
