Kaydon bearing remanufacturing program

Whatever your industry, you're probably looking for ways to increase productivity, prevent unplanned downtime, and lower your total cost of operation. SKF and Kaydon remanufacturing services provide a proven solution.

Benefits of bearing remanufacturing

SKF and Kaydon remanufactured bearings perform as well as brand-new bearings and can significantly reduce initial costs—up to 75% compared to the cost of a new bearing. SKF and Kaydon Bearing Remanufacturing Services can extend bearing life cycle by 50% or more, reduce total life cycle costs, and decrease unplanned downtime. Remanufacturing is especially beneficial for bearings exposed to harsh conditions, like those used in mining, pulp and paper, metals, and construction. We repair bearings as small as 10" (25 cm) and as large as 315" (8 m).

See how the SKF Birmingham Solution Factory inspects bearings that were slated for scrapping and expertly remanufactures them to like-new condition for extended service.
