SKF at bauma: Digitalization in sight

Digital transformations are happening in the construction equipment as well. This is why manufacturers, OEMs and operators of construction machinery are well advised to prepare themselves for the "industry 4.0 age". For this purpose, SKF is presenting a concept study for a pump unit at the forthcoming bauma, which can be controlled and monitored using intuitive software. In addition, the system (which can be used in excavators or wheel loaders, for example) will be so flexibly configurable that the right pump can be created for every user.


SKF plans to introduce the clever solution to the market towards the end of the year. By then, the modern system should be fully digitally integrable, i.e. network-compatible. SKF is thus pursuing the goal of making the current technology study "fit" for remote control and monitoring - for example via SKF Cloud.

Brand new and tried and tested

As the world's leading supplier of lubrication solutions, the company will be providing numerous additional insights into its customized lubrication system program for construction machinery at its outdoor exhibition stand. The spectrum of products on show ranges from portable cordless grease guns to pump units of various sizes and complete central lubrication systems. All these solutions help users to fully unleash the potential of their construction machinery.

SKF’s understanding of its official motto "Unlock the potential of your construction machinery" can be seen in practice at the Munich bauma fair from 8 to 14 April: The 227 square metre SKF stand is located on the open-air site in plot FM.709/4. Experience has shown that the products exhibited there can also be spotted on many construction machines.

Combining more than 100 years of SKF and Lincoln expertise, SKF offers the industry’s most complete portfolio of innovative lubrication solutions – from manual lubricators and tools, to the most advanced centralized and automatic lubrication systems.
