With technology from SKF, Ningbo Rail Transit has extended the service life of critical refurbished bearings on 8 trainset vehicles.
SKF are extending the lifecycle of bearings by utilising hybrid solutions to phase out harmful high voltage currents.
SKF's hybrid deep groove ball bearing offers lower friction, higher precision, and superior electrical insulation properties.
SKF dives into the history of train wheels and wheelset bearings, exploring the evolution of their design over the ages.
According to SKF; the rail industry is facing the challenge of lowering its environmental impact while maintaining operational efficiency.
Axleboxes are a vital component of a train’s suspension system, providing support to the axle & maintaining proper alignment with wheelsets.
SKF believes the reliable performance of railway equipment relies heavily on the durability of its components, particularly the bearings.
