One Canadian original equipment manufacturer is the first North American company to achieve SKF Equipped status.

Luff Industries, a Canadian manufacturer of conveyor components, is the first OE manufacturer on the continent to achieve SKF Equipped status.

According to the SKF press release, after testing SKF solutions for its range of idlers, “Luff Industries realized the value of working with SKF. In turn, SKF realized that Luff Industries is a great fit for the SKF Equipped program.”

To achieve SKF Equipped status, Luff was able to show it meets strict quality standards on the design, manufacture and assembly procedures of rotating equipment. For conveyor components, this provides a competitive edge in achieving longer service life and reducing total cost of ownership.

From this point forward, Luff Industries have the right to label their conveyor components as “SKF Equipped” and use the SKF Equipped identity standard in their promotional material.

The SKF Equipped program places strict quality standards on the design, manufacture and assembly of rotating equipment to achieve highest performance.

Conveyors often operate in very harsh conditions, creating extreme demands on the rotating elements of the conveyor design. At the same time, operators of conveyors are experiencing increased demand for uptime and reliability of their equipment.
