SKF To Showcase Its Latest Vehicle Solutions At AAPEX 2016

SKF will have its latest innovations on display with detailed cutaways of hub bearings, u-joints, seals and more.

screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-1-09-42-pmSKF has announced that its latest wheel end and driveline solutions will be on display at its booth No. 4619 during this year’s AAPEX show in Las Vegas from Nov. 1-3. SKF will showcase its latest innovations through in-depth, detailed cutaways of hub bearings, u-joints, seals and more. Also on display at the booth will be a custom 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Longhorn equipped with SKF hub bearing units.

The booth will showcase SKF’s updated u-joint product line which consists of broader coverage and an expanded range of its high-performance Brute Force line. Available in greasable and non-greasable versions, SKF Universal Joints meet or exceed OE specifications. Each part is precision-manufactured to provide reliable performance and maximum service life. SKF’s expanded product line provides complete coverage for universal joint-equipped vehicles including: cars; light, medium- and heavy-duty trucks; buses; RVs; construction and off-highway equipment; agricultural and industrial equipment; and marine applications up to and including the 2015 model year.

“SKF is looking forward to returning to the AAPEX show to feature its innovative solutions for the automotive aftermarket,” said Brian Jungmann, automotive communications manager, SKF USA Inc. “We’re looking forward to sharing industry-leading expertise in bearing and seal technology, as well as highlighting the high performance solutions that customers have grown to expect from SKF.”

SKF also will highlight its hub bearing kits at this year’s show. SKF hub bearing kits are designed to save time by providing everything an automotive technician needs to replace a press-in style hub bearing, including a cartridge-style wheel bearing, c-clip, axle nut, seals and a premium hub flange. SKF says its hub bearing kit reduces the chance of customer returns by providing quality parts designed to fit and work properly together, eliminating the hassle of sourcing separate parts, sometimes from separate suppliers.
