• SKF develops and supplies a wide range of bearings in axles, drives and traction motors for railways vehicles. Characterized by high performance, high reliability and long maintenance-free service, these bearings support railroads in their mission to provide fast, safe and reliable transportation.
  • SKF–Railways  is also highly sensitive to industry needs. The train is getting faster and faster. To maintain reliability at high speeds, we are developing ribbed cylindrical roller bearings designed for drive units using double helical gears.
  • In addition, we have developed a special cage with excellent grease replenishment ability to meet the requirement of maintenance-free for a longer period of time. Damage from galvanic corrosion is another big maintenance concern, but we also offer solutions in the form of ceramic and resin insulated (Railways)bearings.

Applications of Railways

Bogies and wheelsets

Bogies are complex railway vehicle subsystems critical for reliable performance and reliability on track. Discover the SKF solution right for your given application.

Drive system bearings

SKF drive system bearings for minimal-maintenance, sustainable and cost-effective railway operations with high levels of contamination, in humid environments as well as variations in speed and loads

Rail track solutions

The condition of rail tracks plays a significant role in the reliability of railway operations. Increase reliability on track with SKF maintenance solutions.

Other applications

Finding the right solution for railway applications is not an easy task. SKF can help find the one that suits your needs best.


Loads are defined by their direction. Loads perpendicular to the shaft are called radial loads and loads parallel to the shaft are called axial (thrust) loads.

Successful mounting is critical to the life cycle of your bearing. Proper bearing dismounting can safeguard other machine components and maintenance workers.

  1. The bearing is at the heart of all rotating equipment, and the condition of the bearing often reflects how well a machine is running.
  2. Learn more about bearing damage and bearing failure – and how to prevent it.

Sure, free samples are available for stock products if you can pay for the shipping cost.

We have regular stock for standard bearings that can be shipped right after your payment. It will take 15-60 days for new production order,which depends on your order quantity.

  1. All our bearings are 100% inspected strictly before packing.
  2. If any defective products received, please provide photos and video to show us the problem and help us improve the quality.
  3. New products will be sent to you as replacement if the probelm is product quality.
