Motion engineering is the theme expressed under the SKF parasol, a circular roof which soars to an 82-foot needle at its apex. SKF Industries, Inc., the American affiliate of a worldwide complex of ball and roller bearing manufacturers, uses an illustrated lecture and an exhibit of finished products to show how it helps keep the machines of civilization running.

Guests were treated to a free sample of ball bearings - which often ended up being shot at exhibits in other pavilions. Disney's figure of Abraham Lincoln was a favorite target for many. The US Royal Giant Tire can be seen behind the SKF pavilion. (CD #9 Set 48 #47)
