World’s Most Powerful Bearing Test Center has opened.

21.06.2017 - After less than two years of construction, it was finally time to open the Sven Wingquist Test Center in Schweinfurt today.

The new SKF test center is home to two gigantic rigs. They enable accurate testing methods that will support the proprietary improvements in large size bearing design. This is the only site in the world capable of testing bearings in this category under conditions that will most accurately represent real-life dynamic loads. The complete structure comprises a hall accommodating the test stations and an office and technical tract. The structural planning is based on the winning design in a closed architectural competition.
