On February 9 2017, there was an article that was posted by Bearing.com which talks about how SKF South Africa is working to help an OEM customer reduce and cut down their lead times. This occurred because the customers were unhappy with the length of time they had to wait for certain items to be delivered. Because of this, it was only natural that the customer work with SKF bearings.
For the customer’s earthmoving equipment needs, SKF suggested that they use the Speedi-Sleeve. This Speedi-Sleeve uses a stainless steel material which can be described more in depth by the journalist.
“[The Speedi-Sleeve] uses a proprietary stainless steel material and manufacturing process giving an optimized seal counter-face surface that minimizes wear on both the sleeve and sealing lip. The contact surface is wear resistant. Imperceptible lubricant pockets enable the lubricant to reside on the sleeve and thereby prevent dry running of the sealing lip that otherwise can create excessive wear.”
