PROK Conveyor Components and SKF enter into Australian SKF Equipped Partnership
Perth, Australia – 7th August 2019
PROK Conveyor Components is pleased to announce the strategic partnership with SKF and the introduction of the SKF Equipped program. For the first time in Australia an original equipment manufacturer will be integrating SKF bearings into its products through the SKF Equipped program to ensure they are delivering the highest quality products to customers.
Through working with SKF and combining market leading bearing technology and testing of the new composite range of PROK rollers, the PROKOMPOSITE, customers can be certain that they are buying the best product in the market. The PROKOMPOSITE range of conveyor rollers will come standard with SKF Ball Bearings and PROK bearing housing technology verified and tested by SKF. Combining SKF Ball Bearings with PROK Conveyor Components PROKOMPOSITE high quality engineered composite rollers and patented end cap design will provide customers with unmatched performance and sealing protection. This will increase the life of the rollers and reduce the overall total cost of ownership.
After extensive testing it was clear that SKF Bearings were a great fit for PROK’s range of PROKOMPOSITE rollers. Being an ISO 9001 certified company, PROK was able to achieve SKF Equipped status by meeting high quality standards on the design, manufacture and assembly procedures of rotating equipment set out by SKF.
This is an exciting venture for both companies. “PROK are very excited about this new partnership, combining the strength of two world class manufacturers to deliver the highest quality product our industry has even seen” says Wade Guelfi, GM at PROK Conveyor Components.
