4th International FVA-Conference

The Expert Forum for Bearings –
Rolling and Plain Bearings!

5 - 6 July, 2022 in Würzburg, Germany

BEARING WORLD by FVA

The fourth expert forum on “Industrial Research and Science in Dialogue with Practical Application,” focuses 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.

BEARING WORLD focuses on all aspects of bearings. 

The goal of BEARING WORLD is to promote the exchange of knowledge and experience between univer­sities and engineers from the industry who are involved in or responsible for the design, development, manufac­turing and assembly, or the practical operation or main­tenance of bearings.

We look forward meeting you there!
