    Gothenburg, Sweden, 29 October 2014: SKF presents advanced products and solutions across the five SKF technology platforms at PTC Asia 2014, showing how SKF Life Cycle Management (LCM) can help customers improve energy and resource efficiency, increase reliability, and reduce maintenance life cost.

    For the first time since the acquisition of Kaydon the company participates in PTC Asia together with SKF with the ACE Shockabsorber display. ACE Shockabsorber is the world leader in deceleration technology and provides a linear deceleration with the lowest possible strain on the machine.

    This year, SKF introduces the products and solutions mainly from Industrial Drives and Seals product lines, targeting OEMs, and end user applications and associated services in the areas of gear units, electric motors, fluid machinery and material handling, which shows SKF’s excellent capacity of helping customers to improve the whole asset life cycle.

    “For this year’s PTC Asia, we bring a wide range of products and solutions with good record in global market to China which are well-able to help industrial customers better realize the Life Cycle Management, reduce the Total Cost of Ownership and fully showcase the value of ‘The Power of Knowledge Engineering,” says Mr Zhu Jiming, SKF China President.

    One example of new innovations is the new generation of Mudblock cassette seals mainly for off-highway applications and Planetary Drive unit applications respectively. These solutions can reduce seal friction by up to 20%, offering both off-highway and industrial gear unit customers a solution that reduces energy loss and thus increases efficiency. SKF provides a best in class sealing solution which increases bearing life by preventing the ingress of contaminants and retaining the lubricant inside the bearing, thus also minimizing environmental impact due to oil leakage.

    A new sealing solution for hydraulic motors, which helps to stop motor oil leakages for SKF customers, is also presented at the PTC Asia exhibition. The sealing solution has achieved success Europe. Brevini Fluid Power, a global hydraulic component manufacturer in Italy, faced the problem that a formerly functioning orbital motor seal suddenly started leaking after eight hours of runtime. SKF’s new sealing solution not only fixed the problem quickly, but more importantly provided a long-term upgrade which fully met Brevini’s technical requirements and achieved the full recognition from our customer.

    The Electrical Motor is another highlight in the exhibition and this year we present a new exhibit which showcases our solutions for most robust and most efficient AC induction and PM Motor applications. Electric motors are everywhere, and the machines they run account for more than a quarter of the world’s electricity consumption. SKF is helping OEMs meet increasing demands for quality products, shorter delivery times, and improved technical support. For end-users, SKF tools, technologies and services are driving overall efficiency and reducing total operating costs.

    SKF also brings a hydraulic pump exhibit which demonstrates how SKF boost power density and extend service life for axial piston pumps. The market demand is for axial piston pumps to be more lightweight, high speed, high torque and robust reliability. SKF provides a solution that can increase power density, reduce friction and vibration, cut energy use and bring customers a series of benefits by adopting tapered roller bearing with a carbo nitrite surface, a customized H-ECOPUR seal and other improvements.

    Experts from SKF’s different segments are present to exchange ideas and have in-depth discussion with the visitors.

    Established in China in 1991, Power Transmission and Control exhibition (PTC Asia) is a leading industry exhibition in power transmission and control technologies. As a leading knowledge engineering company, SKF has participated in this exhibition for six years to exhibit its advanced technologies and integrated solutions to meet the increasing needs of Asian customers.
