Antifriction and SKF



A world leader in bearing design

Antifriction is proud to be an authorised distributor of internationally renowned brand SKF. SKF has been around for over a century and in that time has earned a reputation as a world leader in bearing design and manufacture.

SKF was founded in 1907 in Sweden when Sven Wingquist invented the double-row self-aligning ball bearing. Sven was one of the founding members of SKF which has since gone on to expand into countries around the world, as well as design and manufacture a full catalogue of bearings.

Bearings, maintenance tools, lubrication and more

Antifriction works closely with SKF to make sure customers understand what they need for their industrial machinery. Our team of technical experts receive comprehensive training in the products we sell, including SKF’s full catalogue. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a full end-to-end consultation service for customers.

Our team of experts can provide advice on each and every SKF tool or component, including bearings, power transmission tools, lubricants, sealing systems, maintenance equipment and more. Of course, these examples don’t even scratch the surface of all the SKF products Antifriction has to offer. Check out SKF’s website for more information on each product.


World famous bearings

SKF’s name has become so synonymous with high-quality bearings, that over the years multiple counterfeits have been produced. Indeed, SKF have reported numerous instances in which counterfeit bearings have been detected and in each case, these fake bearings could have led to a major incident. For example, a petrochemical processor was forced to shut down when what were later discovered to be counterfeit bearings, failed dramatically.

Counterfeits can be avoided by purchasing through an authorised distributor, such as Antifriction. At Antifriction we will make sure you receive SKF’s expertly designed and manufactured bearings every time.

Designing for the future

SKF is big on research and development, so much so that the company has research centres all over the world. The brand says it is driven especially by customer demand and global concerns. For example, recently SKF developed the RecondOil box, which uses double separation technology to allow customers to reuse oil.

As you can see SKF is constantly looking for ways to make the future of industry better for the health of the planet, employees and of course businesses. Antifriction is excited to be a part of SKF’s journey and will continue to offer the brand's innovative products.
