SKF groups its technologies in five platforms: Bearings and units, Seals, Mechatronics, Services, and Lubrication Systems. By utilizing capabilities of all or some of these platforms, SKF can develop and provide customized functional integrated solutions. The combination of different technologies and new solutions with a perfect integration with the original design achieve better performances by reducing weigh, dimensions, number of components and energy consumption.

Through integration it is possible to optimize and simplify the applications which have a strong positive impact on the cost.

The gearbox and clutch applications can be compacted by integrating the bearings with structural parts as splines realized by spark erosion, thread realized by grinding, flanges realized by milling, holes for the oil injection.

ICOS is a ball bearing, equipped with an integrated and compact oil seal. SKF has developed this new sealing solution to prevent the contamination ingress and to give better lubrication for increasing service life.

The Single nut design integrated on a third generation bearing lets you optimize the boundaries dimensions, increasing the stiffness and decreasing the weight. This solution increases the wheel bearings performances reducing the time to change the wheel.
