BEARING WORLD presented by FVA – Fourth expert forum on “Industrial Research and Science in Dialogue with Practical Application,” focussing on the topic of bearings in theory and application.

In technology, wherever there is movement, rolling element and plain bearings are essential. This is true for general mechanical engineering, the automotive industry and others. Bearings transmit operating forces between moving machine components, and therefore play a crucial role in the functionality, efficiency, and service life of the overall machine or system. The stresses on rolling bearings in particular are very high, and will continue to increase in the future, as will expectations of reliability. Therefore, appropriate bearing selection and dimensioning as well as the optimal design of the bearing environment are indispensable. This requires constant growth in expertise based on practical experience and scientific knowledge. This includes, for example, bearing installation to ensure optimum clearance and preload, lubrication and sealing design, corrosion protection, condition monitoring, and targeted improvements based on extensive failure analysis.
