The SKF Drum Support Unit is the latest solution from SKF to improve the performance and manufacture of domestic washing machines. With the volume of 3 lakh pieces to be produced per year at the Bangalore unit of SKF India, the association aims to introduce an appliance that aims at delivering improved performance, comfort and energy savings.

IFB 's capabilities and market reach make them a very strong partner for bringing SKF India to the domestic washing machine market. The innovative Drum Support Unit for washing machines will help IFB's customers to save energy consumption at home, while simultaneously contributing to cost-effective manufacturing and improved washing machine performance."

Like many home appliance maker, IFB have traditionally used conventional cast iron and ball bearings fit to them and assembled with a plastic tub. The SKF Drum Support Unit is a single unit that comes with integrated bearings that are greased and sealed for life, so the number of assembly operations is reduced and no additional machining operations are required. Despite its lighter weight compared with metal equivalents, the drum support unit is a robust, compact and low-maintenance design. As a result, the unit cuts manufacturing and assembly costs and efforts while delivering end-users savings in terms of energy and improved performance

SKF's mission is to be the undisputed leader in the bearing business. SKF offers solutions around the rotating shaft, including bearings, seals, lubrication, condition monitoring and maintenance services. SKF is represented in more than 130 countries and has around 17,000 distributor locations worldwide. Annual sales in 2018 were SEK 85 713 million and the number of employees was 44,428.
