The SKF Cooper Quick-Change Angled Pedestal Turns 50

SKF Cooper Bearings is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its popular angled pedestal. Cooper invented the angled pedestal for a cement kiln pinion shaft application in 1968 before the company's competitors were even founded. In fact, Cooper’s history of split-bearings innovation goes back to its founding in 1907.

The SKF Cooper Quick-Change pedestal is designed to greatly reduce downtime as well as installation and replacement costs. The pedestal is split for easy assembly around a fixed shaft, with the bottom half easily sliding out under the shaft. With the Cooper Quick-Change angled pedestal, Cooper bearing units are even easier to install, since the angled joint allows the pedestal to be slid under the shaft with no need for a hoist or jack to install the housing base.

Originally a custom solution, the angled pedestal is now available across Cooper’s standard range of SN, SD and SAF equivalent pedestal housings.
