Stay competitive in extreme conditions.
Temperature and speed extremes, high and constant shock loads, abrasive dust, aggressive chemicals and high humidity
it's safe to say that few industries can match the extreme operating conditions in Steel, Cement or Paper Industry.
Discover how we can help you stay ahead. Please explore our wide range of products, services and solutions.
Get reliable performance under harsh conditions. Heavy industries, like Cement, Paper or Steel industry, must withstand high vibration, shock loads, slow speeds and a high concentration of particulates. All of which means that contamination, loss of lubricant and even improper mounting techniques can all lead to failures for the machines. And, of course, cause costly downtime and repairs, not to mention added safety risks for workers. Our rolling bearings are designed to protect the machines from these harsh operating conditions and prevent failure, helping you improve reliability and safety while reducing maintenance and operating costs.
Do you want to optimize your machine lubrication and cooling? Reliable and efficient machine lubrication results in reduction of downtime and repair costs. SKF is constantly developing and improving products and solutions to offer the perfect match for the heavy industry machines. Hundreds of machines with thousands of bearings are meanwhile equipped with SKF automatic lubrication systems and automatic oil circulation lubrication systems. In decades of close cooperation SKF has become a key supplier to many global players in the Heavy Industry. Explore our SKF flowline oil supply units, Progressive and Multi-line lubrication systems and the right fittings with accessories.
Prevent bearing damage with a fast and precise mounting method. Up to 20% of those machines bearing damage comes from incorrect mounting.
We can provide you everything needed for a successful mounting, including hydraulic nuts, dial indicators, high-accuracy pressure gauges, hydraulic pumps, and the latest method calculating software.

SKF Cooper has been working closely with Steel-, Cement and Paper-producing OEMs and end-users across the world for many decades. SKF Cooper provides the widest assortment on the market. It includes four series of cylindrical roller, split tapered roller bearings and split spherical roller bearings.
We offer a complete range of seals to achieve long bearing life by meeting the exact needs of a given location and working environment.
No matter the application (Paper, Steel or Cement Industry) in need of a flexible coupling, our extensive product portfolio allows us to meet any requirement. Both standard and engineered-to-order coupling solutions are available. We can provide a turnkey solution for a complete drive, ensuring that all of our solutions are tailored to each application. With more than 100 years of combined experience in the heavy industry, JAURE® and KOP-FLEX® products provide innovative solutions in the steel, aluminium and copper industries. Their supply program covers gear/elastic couplings and spindles for steel production, hot and cold rolling mills, processing lines, finishing lines for both new plants and modernization of old ones.
igus® e-chains® are already in use today in tens of thousands of applications – They guide and protect cables and hoses in steelworks, cement and paper machinery. They have a modular design and are therefore easy to install. They are media-friendly and suitable for large, heavy and stiff cables and hoses. Our e-chains® withstand hot chips with temperatures up to +850° C. Many arguments speak for the use of energy chains in the heavy-duty area. For example: strong and flexible, hot chips up to 850 °C, fill weights up to 600 kg/m, 90.000 types from stock, 100% corrosion-free, quick assembly, easy filling, low weight, quiet operation, low vibration, maintenance-free, cables with 36 months guarantee, cable drum without slip ring, 80% reduction of process costs and many other advantages.

For decades CARCO-PRP has delivered a package of dynamic seals suitable for the harsh working conditions of the steel mills, cement and paper industry; the same sealing solutions are used in the rolling mills for the production of Aluminium foil. The bearings in hot and cold rolling mills are exposed to severe working conditions. The radial lip seals must prevent ingress of cooling water and scale into the bearing and they must avoid leakage of the bearing lubricant. When the roll neck is fitted into the chock, the seal lip can be damaged, causing risk of corrosion of the bearing and pieces of broken spring into the rotating metal parts. The engineered profile of CARCOSEAL "ANTI TWIST LIP" eliminates the risk of lip damage and it provides the best protection of the bearing.
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.
For heavy-duty applications, the bearing selection process is extremely important. Typically, the bearings in these types of applications must accommodate:
- heavy alternating loads
- shock loads
- heavy static loads
Steel/steel radial spherical plain bearings or hydraulic rod ends are an excellent choice for these applications, because the high strength of the sliding contact surfaces provides superior performance under these load conditions. Many manufacturers in the heavy-industry rely on our product range. We can offer you a wide range of radial spherical plain bearings, rod ends and hydraulic rod ends from DURBAL® and SKF.
