SKF continues to expand its seals business, both organically and through acquisitions, bringing new products, engineering technologies and advanced solutions to an ever growing number of automotive, industrial and bearing applications.
Thanks to SKF's extensive application knowledge as well as long experience in seal design and material development, it has developed advanced sealing solutions that successfully meet the main industry trends of sustainability, increased power density and cost efficiency.
SKF's commitment to sustainability involves developing products contributing to a reduction of energy usage and CO2 emissions. Examples of such products are the latest generation of PTFE and elastomer seals for automotive powertrain applications. Thanks to their specific designs and materials, not only the friction loss is reduced, resulting in improved fuel economy, but also the use of non-recyclable material.
The technical trend of compact machines withstanding higher system pressures put tough demands on seal design and material to contribute to improved performance while helping to reduce fuel consumption and emissions as well as to increase maintenance intervals. The high pressure valve stem seals developed by SKF enable downsizing of oil separating units while reducing the blow-by volumes and resulting emissions.
SKF's flexible production options worldwide including both moulded and machined seals provide a cost efficient customer offering throughout the product life cycle. Prototypes, high-volume items as well as maintenance products for the aftermarket are all supported by the production flexibility.
