All SKF bearing and hub assemblies are premium quality, and are manufactured using high quality steel and surface finishes, premium seals, OE grade sensors, precision manufacturing techniques and precise assembly tolerances.
Each SKF bearing is 100% tested to the actual OE specifications for fit, form and function. SKF offer the broadest range of hub bearings and kits in the aftermarket. Nearly 90 million vehicles worldwide are riding on SKF wheel end bearings and hub units; more than all other brands combined.
SKF was the first to pioneered the hub unit in the 1930's when it designed the unit used on the then revolutionary Traction Avant front wheel drive car by Citroen. Since then, SKF has pioneered every major advance in wheel end technology since the invention of the automobile, and its commitment to innovation continues to this day.
With expertise in not only bearings but also in seals, lubrication, and mechatronics, SKF is able to look at wheel end technology from a systems point of view, giving its products improved functionality, reliability, efficiency, and safety.
With OE equipment ranging from tapered wheel bearings to self-contained hub units with embedded sensors that communicate with the vehicle's computerized program unit to control anti-lock brakes (ABS), traction control systems (TCS), and other important functions, vehicle manufacturers around the world rely and trust SKF for wheel end components and integrated systems.
Looking ahead, SKF is now developing a new generation of sensorized hubs that will further improve safety and driveability. SKF's leadership in hub technology has been confirmed with numerous awards from vehicle manufacturers such as Toyota and Fiat, component system suppliers, and automotive publications in both Europe and the U.S. One such award proclaimed the SKF patented X-Tracker "the most significant innovation in the global hub bearing market since the integration of ABS sensors in the 1990s".
