Kaiserslautern, Germany. FVA Bearing World 2018 will bring together experts from research and industry in the fields of design, calculation, and the practical use of bearings. More than 40+ high level presentations will detail the latest research projects as well as reports from field operation. Rolling bearings are still the main focus, but this year the event will also include an interesting look at plain bearings. The conference provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of technology, research, and development with leading national and international experts. Exhibitors include Schaeffler, SKF, FVA, Stresstech and more. With FVA Bearing World, the German Research Association for Drive Technology is initiating an international dialogue, an exchange of knowledge and experience in which researchers and developers from universities and bearing manufacturers come together with users and experts from the industry.
