Off-road construction machinery, mining, mineral processing and cement making operations face some of the toughest and most remote working conditions on earth.
With heat, contaminants, vibration, heavy loads and extreme production demands where lost days can be very costly, you need machinery you can trust.
Meet these challenges head on to achieve uptime you can rely on, while reducing maintenance costs and safety risks.
Avoid costly machine downtime. Losing a continuous on off-road construction machinery or miner for hours or days can send maintenance and unplanned downtime costs soaring. Machinery manufacturers can face warranty costs and dissatisfied customers. Prevent costly bearing failures with solutions from us. We can help keep wheeled or tracked continuous miners moving in spite of coal dust, water spray, high temperatures or heavy shock loads.
Explore our wide range of rolling elements, like:
- Tapered roller bearings
- Angular contact ball bearings
- Deep groove ball bearings
- Spherical roller bearings
- Cylindrical roller bearings
Working hard in extremely demanding environments. Construction and mining operations require equipment and infrastructure capable of providing long life with the minimum of downtime when working in the harshest of environments. Off-highway machinery and vehicles for the construction, forestry and mining sectors are expected to perform when needed and are used in extremely harsh conditions. They require high-performance, long-lasting sealing solutions which can operate under high pressure and temperature fluctuations, and simultaneously stand up to dirt and moisture, as well as corrosive greases and fuels in the machinery.
Further to our wide range of sealing solutions we can make customized machined seals in minutes instead of waiting days for delivery with our SKF SEAL JET machining system.
Seeing through a major construction project requires creative architects, good construction engineers, robust materials and reliable construction machinery.
In terms of the latter, DURBAL® provides sliding bearing heavy-duty rod ends, hydraulic rod ends and spherical plain bearings from the DURBAL® Classic Line and DURBAL® Basic Line, thereby contributing to ensuring that construction machinery manufacturers are offered the right products, characterised by their durability and long working life.
Many construction- and hydraulic cylinder manufacturers rely on DURBAL® hydraulic rod ends or spherical plain bearings, which they use, for example, in cranes and excavators.
Automatic lubrication takes a load off your mind. Centralized automatic lubrication systems are an effective way to increase machine availability while reducing reliance on scarce talent. With an automatic lubrication system installed on your construction machines, you know that bearings are receiving the rightamount of lubricant at the right time. There is also no need to stop the machine for relubrication – you simply need to keep the lubrication system filled and maintained.
We have as well the right lubricants, tools for greasing, mounting and dismounting our products. Just explore our Relubrication Program as well!
Cooper bearings – keeping ahead of mining breakthroughs. As mining companies across the globe develop ever more sophisticated means of extraction and processing, Cooper is investing in R & D to develop products that match the mining industry’s needs today – and tomorrow. Cooper offers a range of bearings to suit the specific demands of your mining application. Tough conditions, tough solutions.
BTW by installing SKF Cooper split spherical roller bearings the mine shortened MTTR by 55% by shortening installation time and run-in time.
Construction machinery manufacturers today face the challenges of reducing costs and increasing productivity. They have developed a wide range of equipment using the latest technologies. EWELLIX® has a wide range of actuators and linear guides for auxiliary and work functions with greater load-bearing capacity, stability, speed, reliability, performance and safety. The high energy efficiency and energy recuperation enhance the battery electric vehicles. Very popular are the CASM-100 and CAHB-2x actuators from EWELLIX® in this industry.
