The SKF Spherical roller bearing 100 years anniversary
100 years ago the remarkable spherical roller bearing was invented. It has been refined and optimized ever since, offering quality and high performance to our customers. This is a brief look back through the years, presenting the invention that has offered reliable rotation worldwide, for more than 100 years.
The spherical roller bearing, that helps engineers accommodate heavy radial and axial loads in applications prone to misalignment or shaft deflections, celebrates its 100th birthday this year thanks to SKF.
