Incorrect methods account for 16% of premature bearing failures.

SKF Induction heaters utilise advanced power electronics with application specific designs for high performance.

As a result, by using an SKF induction heater, the total cost of ownership is often significantly lower. Ergonomics and safety are also an important consideration for operators.

SKF induction heaters are equipped with design features that make them easy to use and safe.

Bearing support arms reduce the risk of the bearing toppling during heating, and ergonomically designed yokes help reduce operator fatigue.

In addition, the remote control enables the operator to control the heater at a safe distance from the hot workpiece, enhancing operator safety.


SKF’s range of heating equipment enables quick and safe dismounting of cylindrical roller bearing inner rings and covers a wide range of applications.

Aluminium heating rings TMBR series are designed for dismounting inner rings of small and medium-size cylindrical roller bearings.

Adjustable and fixed induction heaters EAZ series are suitable for frequent dismounting of various sizes of cylindrical roller bearing inner rings.
