SKF | Solar Hub

Tracking systems are important features in efficient solar power generation as they help to increase the power output of solar panels. In developing a solar hub, SKF was supported by Pezy Group. The solar hub has been designed to manage extremely harsh conditions in which solar panels operate and provides highly accurate movement.

Special worm gear bearing

The SKF Solar Hub is a special worm gear bearing. We supported SKF from formulating the requirements to production start-up. With Creo Elements/Pro, the product has been built up using a Top-Down methodology with a focus on assembly and ease of use. In addition, we used Creo Elements/Mechanica to optimize the strength/weight ratio. The result is a products that’s virtually maintenance-free with an expected service life of 20 years.
