Challenge

Optimize the Perfect Order Planning

At some point, the bearing will reach the end of its service life and will have to be replaced. Although the bearing may not be used again, it is extremely important to dismount it correctly so that the service life of the replacement bearing is not compromised. The use of proper dismounting tools will help prevent damage to other machine components, such as the shaft and housing, which are often re–used. Secondly, incorrect dismounting techniques can be hazardous to the operator.

Production Planning

The comprehensive SKF induction heater range can be used for efficiently heating bearings and work pieces, both large and small.

  • Advanced power electronics, with accurate electric current control, help control the temperature rate increase

  • Two step power setting option (50% / 100%), enables small bearings to be heated safely and at a lower power consumption

  • For heating components other than bearings, all heaters are equipped with a heating time mode and for large components, optimized TIH MB heaters for solid work pieces are available

  • Thermal overheating protection reduces the risk of damage to the induction coil and the electronics, enhancing reliability and safety

  • Precision of the radial and axial position of the shaft

  • Automatic demagnetisation reduces the risk of ferrous debris contamination after heating

  • Available in different voltage variants, to suit most operating voltages worldwide

  • Supplied with heat-resistant gloves for improved operator safety

Solution

The comprehensive range of SKF induction heaters is suitable for most bearing heating applications. The selection chart below gives general information on choosing an induction heater for bearing heating applications. For heating components other than bearings, SKF recommends the use of a TIH L MB series heater. Contact us to help you select a suitable induction heater for your application.
