Power transmission solutions
Designing your power transmission system, and keeping it running smoothly and profitably, is a complex challenge. To help you improve rotating equipment performance, we have an extensive range of products and support services.
We offer you high-quality components for designing and maintaining a power transmission system, on fast turnaround. These include belts, chains, pulleys, sprockets, couplings, bushings and hubs, plus bolts and tightening systems. Each can be customised to meet your specific needs. A choice of bearings, seals and lubricants is also available, offering you the full spectrum of products from a single source.
All these components have been used extensively to boost machine efficiency in power transmission applications, backed by expert advice. Specifying proven, quality products leads to greater reliability, reduced maintenance and a faster return on investment. This contributes to a lower total cost of ownership.
In addition, a suite of engineering tools – such as belt and chain drive calculators – helps you specify a precise solution.

Improve plant efficiency with accurate belt selection
Plant efficiency is a key performance indicator, and one that most manufacturers want to improve.
In power transmission, our Plant Belt Drive Mapping service has helped many customers to achieve this. After assessing all belt drives within a facility, our technical experts recommend how best to raise efficiency and extend operating lifetimes.
Choosing higher quality belts can reduce the total cost of ownership of machinery over the long term. We offer a variety of belts, from standard V-belts to high-performance ‘Xtra Power’ belts that can transmit up to 40% more power than standard products. However, identifying exactly which product you need from such a broad selection can be simplified by using our clear selection tools. To make specification quick and simple, click through to SKF’s online catalogue for a clear description of each product type, before defining specific details. Here, you can find the full range of parts that you need.
