SKF-LTU University Technology Cooperation

The SKF-LTU University Technology Cooperation in advanced condition monitoring is working to develop tomorrow's technology for monitoring machines with so-called smart bearings. A smart bearing can be described as a bearing unit with built-in sensors for condition monitoring, technology to self-generate the electrical energy required to operate the sensors and devices to wirelessly transfer data to other bearings and networks.

LTU-SKF University Technology Cooperation (UTC) at Luleå University is the fifth SKF University Technology Centre in the world, an exclusive group to which, among others, University of Cambridge belongs. The multinational industrial company SKF aims for revolutionary research results with the new research collaboration between SKF and LTU.
