SKF has completed the integration of Société Nouvelle de Fabrication Aéronautique (SNFA) into the SKF Group and consolidated the SNFA brand under the SKF brand. SKF precision bearings are found in machine tools and other applications where precision, quiet running and low friction rotation is necessary, such as high-performance racing, marine and heavy industry.
Henrik Lange, President, SKF Industrial Market Strategic Industries, says: “Over the last five years we have integrated our deep technical knowledge of super-precision bearings with SNFA’s broad knowledge base of machine tool applications. As a result, we can provide the industry with an improved and extended range of new-generation, super-precision bearings which let spindles run with higher accuracy and reliability.”
SKF acquired SNFA in 2006 with a common goal to join expertise and resources and bring to the market differentiating and better products for machine design projects. Based on the combined expertise, SKF will continue working to develop innovative products, advanced modelling tools and strengthening the spindle services network with teams of specialists in bearings, lubrication, seals, condition monitoring and more, all under the SKF brand.
For customers, this means that super-precision bearings packaging, sales material, engineered products and services will be offered under the SKF brand only. For further information about SKF precision bearings, email , or visit the website at www.skf.com/portal/skf/home.
