Bearing Failure Percentages

Did you know that over 60% of bearing failures are due to Poor Fiting, Poor Lubrication or Contamination? Only 34% of bearings ever see their Fatique limit and ‘wear out’.


Are you taking all the correct measures to ensure you too do not get caught with downtime due to bearing failure?

Maintenance Matters!

Below is a link to a very interesting article on the importance of maintenance on machines and plant focused around the cost associated with bearing failures.

Check out the state of the Spherical Roller Bearing Phil Williams (SKF Training Manager) is holding, also shown to the right!
