New mobile app from SKF simplifies bearing mounting

11 June 2020

SKF Bearing Assist app simplifies the process of mounting and installing bearings and can be used by everyone in a maintenance organisation.

SKF Bearing Assist app, developed with customers, provides detailed mounting instructions for a comprehensive range of SKF bearings

It is suitable for use by all engineering and maintenance teams and will minimise the problems of incorrect mounting, reducing installation time and cost, and helping to extend the operating life of bearings.

Bearing Assist also allows engineers to record the work they have carried out, which can improve the way that bearing knowledge is shared across an organisation.

“SKF Bearing Assist is a new mobile tool that enables quick, correct and easy mounting,” says Linus Wahlterius, Product Manager at SKF. “It’s a tool that can turn new recruits into experts.”

The app contains detailed product information, including bearing designation, bearing type (with visuals) and suffix descriptions, as well as dimensions and illustrations. The mounting instructions cover bearings with a basic design that are included in the standard assortment. 

Information such as clearance reduction and drive-up method calculations and recommendations on lubrication can save time and effort when fitting bearings.

The instantly accessible information helps to improve the efficiency with which bearings can be installed. In addition, maintenance and production engineers can improve their fitting techniques by following the detailed instructions.

Once a bearing has been mounted, this can be recorded in the app with details such as date, a specific asset, location and work order. Details of which specific bearing has been mounted can also be added. Results can instantly be exported as a PDF, reducing the time needed to produce a mounting report. Logging these details in such an efficient way helps to improve maintenance collaboration. This can help to improve maintenance planning and ultimately, increase asset reliability.

Bearing Assist is available for free download from Apple Store, in the UK on June 9th and coming soon in other countries and Google Play. A quick in-app registration for full functionality including storing and sharing records is required. Log-in details are the same as for ProCollect and other SKF applications.
