SKF and Proximion development partnershipSKF (www.skf.com) and Proximion AB (www.proximion.com) (a subsidiary of Hexatronic Group AB) have entered into a development partnership for the industrialisation of fibre-optic sensing systems.

They will work together to combine SKF’s fibre-optic bearing sensing technology with Proximion’s application integration experience and knowledge in the development and production of advanced fibre-optic sensors and data-collection hardware.

Victoria Van Camp, SKF CTO, said: “Fibre-optic sensing technology is an exciting opportunity, as it enables bearings to become process and quality control instruments.

We have worked for some time to develop these sensors; by taking the next step together, we will be able to speed up the process of integrating them into customer applications.”

Fibre-optic technology allows for end-of-line integration into existing bearing production environments, while most existing sensor technologies place additional requirements on rebuilding manufacturing sites to cater for the safe handling of electronics.

Be seen in all the right places!
