Argos, one of the largest cement producers in Latin America, has chosen Svenska Kullagerfabriken (SKF) from Goteborg/Sweden to provide a broad range of engineering products and services for its operations in Colombia over the next three years. SKF will provide the Colombian cement manufacturer with condition-based maintenance services, mechanical services, reliability engineering services and condition monitoring solutions. This will support Argos to take a “proactive maintenance” approach to ensuring its conveyors, gearboxes and mills operate reliably in its four biggest facilities in Colombia.
In addition to this, as part of a renewed “trouble-free operation” corporate supply agreement, SKF will provide everything from bearings, housings and seals to training and application engineering, to support Argos’ operations in ten plants throughout Colombia. Argos has expanded the scope of this agreement to include seals and more bearing products than SKF had supplied previously.
