BEARING WORLD is back – live and in person, with valuable insights, exciting sessions, and engaging presentations

BEARING WORLD, the international bearing forum, was held on 05 and 06 July, 2022 in the idyllic and culture-rich city of Würzburg. Over these two days, about 200 participants from Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden engaged in dialogue with 21 exhibitors – including event organizer FVA GmbH and conference sponsors Schaeffler Technologies, SKF Group, and FUCHS LUBRICANTS GERMANY.

Professor Gerhard Poll from Leibniz Universität Hannover and Christian Kunze of FVA e.V. opened BEARING WORLD under the moderation of professor Bernd Sauer from Technische Universität Kaiserslautern. Dr. Michael Pausch of Schaeffler Technologies, Andrew Bell of SKF Group, and Dr. Matthias Schweinsberg of FUCHS LUBRICANTS GERMANY kicked off the conference with their keynotes.

In addition to a large international audience and interesting discussions, the conference offered a first-rate scientific program to encourage the transfer of knowledge and experience between science and industry. Around 40 top speakers from the automotive and supplier industries as well as leading research institutes provided insights on the following topics: electrical phenomena in bearing operation, rolling element bearing lubrication, life and durability, hydrodynamic plain bearings, energy efficiency and lubrication, challenges in bearing applications and manufacturing, bearing damage mechanisms and detection, and bearings in wind turbines.

After this year’s successful conference, all participants and interested parties can already look forward to the next BEARING WORLD in 2024 with anticipation.
