Updated app from SKF extends access to information on super-precision bearings

SKF has updated the app that gives users instant information on super-precision bearings. Super-precision manager app allows users to scan a code on the product packaging, or on the bearing itself, to access product data, mounting instructions and measurement reports. It also includes information on when and where a bearing was manufactured, for enhanced traceability. The app has been updated with a new bearing matching function which enables each user to retrieve bearing data and combine universally matchable bearings into sets. This choice is critical when for example mounting bearings in spindle applications. The matched sets can be saved into a report for later use or documentation. The function has been added to the app following requests from customers.

“The app makes life easier because it saves time when accessing information,” says Sten Thunberg, project manager at SKF. “It also makes the documentation process much more efficient. There is less chance of human error, because data is not transcribed manually.”

Super-precision manager app is available in 15 languages, including both simplified and traditional Chinese. The app is typically used in machine tool applications, such as spindle repair and maintenance. It can be used in a variety of job functions. Customer service staff can use it to supply detailed documentation, for instance. Similarly, service staff could use the app to see what has been built into a spindle.

Access to this type of information can be further enhanced via SKF’s API (application programming interface) portal. The API connects to data – such as product characteristics – in a seamless, secure way. This allows users to build their own technical solutions around tools and machinery. Ultimately, this helps to increase the lifetime of assets and lower costs.
