The latest edition of SKF's popular Rolling Bearings Catalogue is now available online. The authors have aimed to make this new publication an essential engineering reference for users of rolling bearings, covering their appropriate selection, configurations and applications, and providing detailed guidance on correct installation procedures to ensure long and trouble-free service life.
 
The Engineering Section has been completely rewritten and now includes a step-by-step bearing selection guide - the 'Bearings Selection Process' - which makes it much easier for customers to select the right bearing arrangement for their particular machine or project. This innovative new tool, which benefits from SKF's extensive experience of rolling bearing design, installation and in-service care, is also available as an online engineering resource for OEMs, SKF approved distributors and other end-users.  
The Engineering Section also includes a thermal analysis feature that can be used to highlight the influence of friction losses on clearance. A new 'Popular Items' feature has also been introduced; designed to speed and simplify the process of ordering bearings from SKF's commonly used product lines, this feature uses a special icon placed against products that are always available directly from stock due to their popularity.
 
The catalogue's online content is regularly updated to ensure that the very latest products are included along with the current SKF assortment, and that all obsolete items are removed from the Product Tables as soon as they are withdrawn from the catalogue. As a global publication the new Rolling Bearings Catalogue is available in a number of languages, including German, Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Portugese, Russian, Czech and Simplified Chinese. The new catalogue will be available in print in English during spring 2018. To access the online copy in any of these languages, please visit
