    Abstract

    Steels used in rolling bearing applications require high reliability and consistency. The SKF MR process developments carried out at Ovako Steel have led to the design of cleanliness specifications which correspond to such requirements. The reduction of oxygen content and harmful nonmetallic inclusions have led to significantly improved fatigue properties of rolling bearing steels.

    Keywords:
