SKF: Bearing down on efficiency at the wheel-end

May 8, 2024
Improving wheel-end bearing efficiency and working in predictive maintenance are a few way SKF plans on improving customer uptime in the next few years.

As a leading manufacturer of tapered bearings, wheel seals, and other aftermarket components for the CV market, SKF is a company that prioritizes innovation. Their recent partnerships and endeavors have culminated in a number of products that put efficiency at the forefront, utilizing analytical data and other newer technologies to deliver unique benefits to drivers and fleet managers. 

To learn more about SKF's more recent product releases and how they help fleets to stay on top of maintenance before issues can put trucks out of commission, we caught up with Michael Hartman, SKF's director of CV sales for N.A., in New Orleans at the 2024 TMC Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition.
