WARD NSK bearings as a pioneer brand in Japan, early, since began production of bearings, the use of a well-structured intelligence network, with Japan, Europe, the Americas, Asia-Pacific region as a four quadrupole system.
Sven Wingqvistone of the founders of SKF SKF office in Montreal, QuebecCanada in SKF self-aligning ball bearing Sven Wingqvistat the time a thirty-year-old plant engineer responsible for repairs and maintenance at Gamlestadens Fabriker, was dissatisfied with the performance of the ball bearings then in use.
These were rigid ball bearings, imported from Germanyand if the long shafts on the machinery in a textile mill were the least bit misaligned, the ball bearings would become overheated and break down, bringing production to a costly halt.
In springWingquist presented a breakthrough — a double row self-aligning ball bearing with a spherical raceway in the outer ring, shared by both rows of balls.
This allowed the inner ring to align freely in relation to the outer ring, with no negative impact on the function of the bearing. The new bearing solved the problem associated with misalignment of the shafts and thus did away with the frequent production stops.
Self-alignment was particularly useful in the less-than-perfect machinery of the times and in buildings with subsidence problems, which was the case at Gamlestadens Fabriker, since much of the land on which Gothenburg has been built is clay. On 16 FebruaryWingqvist applied for Swedish patent No.
The Patent was granted on 6 June in Sweden coinciding with patents in 10 other countries.
The new ball bearing was successful from the outset. Three years after SKF was founded, the company had employees and a subsidiary in the United Kingdom. Manufacturing operations were later established in multiple countries. BySKF was represented in 32 countries and bya staff of over 21, were employed in 12 manufacturing facilities worldwide with the largest in PhiladelphiaUnited States.
SKF began its operations in India in by establishing a trading outpost in Calcutta.
The early operations involved importing of automotive bearings. Ltd and Investment Corp. In the beginning, the company functioned as a subsidiary automobile company within the SKF group.
SKF funded the production run of the first thousand cars, built at Hisingen in Gothenburgbeginning in SKF used one of the company's trademarked names: AB Volvo, which derives from the Latin "I roll", with its obvious connotations of bearings in motion.
The ownership of Volvo lasted until when the last shares were divested. In the s SKF embarked on a massive production rationalization program in Europe. A visionary project, "Production Concept for the 80s" was launched with the aim to run the night shifts practically unmanned. To increase productivity and safeguard the product quality, a continuous, automatic flow of bearing rings was needed, so SKF developed the Flexlink brand.
FlexLink created the multiflex plastic chain conveyor system to solve the business requirements. SKF divested FlexLink as a separate company in Present day business[ edit ] SKF corporate headquarters in Gothenburg.
