SKF Cooper split bearings to get a facelift
New blue colour, new product markings and new box design for all SKF Cooper split roller bearings
SKF Cooper split roller bearings are about to get a brand-new look with a new blue colour, new product markings and new box design.
The change from the current Cooper product brand and identity to the new SKF Cooper dual-product brand and identity will begin on 1 November 2018 and will cover all products made by SKF Cooper. The gradual step-by-step implementation of the changes will continue into 2019.
Among the key changes will be the housing branding, product name plates, packaging and labels, component markings as well as the blue housing and cartridge paint colour, but SKF say customers can rest assured that all the changes are purely visual and do not in any way impact product technology or performance.
SKF Cooper products will continue to complement the growing SKF portfolio of complete solutions for the mining, quarrying, construction, marine and energy sectors.
In addition to the brand name change, the channels to market for SKF Cooper products, including responses to customer enquiries, product supply and after-sales support, will be handled via the SKF sales office in Luton going forward.
SKF Cooper split roller bearings can be fitted, removed and inspected without having to dismantle surrounding equipment, providing savings in terms of reduced maintenance and downtime.
The products include both split cylindrical roller bearings and split double-row tapered roller bearings, the latter with the ability to take axial loads in either direction. Both are housed and sealed in special swivel cartridges, which are suitable for mounting in pedestal or flanged outer housings.
