SKF has recently been awarded a very prestigious contract to supply bearings for next-generation aircraft engines.
CFM International, leading manufacturers of aircraft engines in the US, has awarded this much-coveted contract to SKF to supply mainshaft and gearbox bearings. These will be used in the LEAP engine programme, an aircraft turbofan engine.
SKF has been working closely with CFM International for a number of years, contributing manufacturing technology, design and testing knowledge of bearings. The LEAP engine programme will result in an aircraft engine that is lighter, quieter and much more fuel-efficient. It will also emit significantly less carbon than other aircraft engines.
We at Africa Bearings are proud to be associated with such a reputable manufacturer bringing unmatched quality to the bearings market in South Africa.
