Closing the asset lifecycle loop

We close the SKF Life Cycle Management loop when we channel our ‘end user’ knowledge back into the specification phase of next generation equipment. Technologies, such as condition monitoring, can be designed into new OEM assets or retrofitted, constantly improving and providing differentiation in competitive markets, adding value, and extending the possibilities for aftermarket services and enhanced machinery maintenance.
