Cooper split bearing with integrated SKF Vibracon chocks demonstrated at Europort 2015
Europort’s critical role as the focus for technological innovation in the shipping industry was reflected in international visitor numbers at the 2015 event. This year’s exhibition attracted unprecedented overseas participation, with international visitors up to 22% and 15 country pavilions present. 29,174 visitors in total came through the doors in Rotterdam during Europort 2015.
On the SKF stand a new solution by Cooper bearings and SKF Solution Factory – Marine Services was presented; a Cooper split roller bearing with integrated SKF Vibracon chocks. This new combination of existing solutions is a nice synergy between the involved members of the SKF family. The advantages of the Cooper split bearings and the SKF Vibracon adjustable steel chocks are even stronger when combined, making easy, quick and accurate installation possible. The self levelling capability of the SKF Vibracon chock combined with its height adjustment feature eliminates the possibility of a soft foot throughout the bearing lifecycle.
