It’s easy to get started and with entry-level setup costs, there’s no need to make the case for capital expenditure. Handheld sensors and mobile apps make it easy to capture, share and store inspection, process and machine health data.

Simple and robust, the SKF QuickCollect handheld sensor monitors for a wide range of issues relating to vibration and temperature. The sensor transmits data wirelessly to an app on a mobile device, providing instant machine diagnostics and the ability to store and share data for further analysis. The SKF QuickCollect app offers entry level, on-the-spot analysis capability. Upgrading to the SKF DataCollect app provides extended diagnostic capabilities, customised forms for collecting all types of inspection and process data, as well as the ability to connect with SKF expert remote services.
