SKF Vehicle Aftermarket is introducing its SKF Trouble-Free Operation (TFO) training program at next month's American Trucking Associations (ATA) Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) 2022 Annual Meeting in Orlando.
Featuring in-person, hands-on instruction and access to the latest product resources, SKF says its TFO training program offers a proven systems approach to proper wheel end maintenance.
“At SKF, we are committed to providing our customers with a full-service, solutions-oriented approach to optimum heavy-duty wheel end productivity,” says Michael Hartman, director, National Fleet Sales, SKF Vehicle Aftermarket. “The TMC expo is a great opportunity to demonstrate how our TFO training program can help transform wheel end performance through proper education, easy-to-follow tutorials and direct technical support.”
In addition to access to SKF’s elite team of heavy-duty aftermarket professionals, the SKF TFO training program helps fleet maintenance personnel learn about wheel-end inspection, removal/installation, care guidelines and failure analysis, the company says. Insights gathered from the program can also help operators cut costs related to premature failures, boost bearing and seal service life, increase fleet productivity and uptime and improve wheel-end reliability.
“When technicians understand more about maintenance, inspection, removal, and installation, premature failure of the wheel ends can be avoided, and operating costs can be reduced,” says Hartman. “TFO not only minimizes unplanned downtime and extends the service life of wheel-end components, but also keeps drivers safe while on the road.”
