6th VDI “Fachkonferenz Schadensmechanismen an Lagern”

Plain and roller bearings are installed in numerous machines and are indispensable for their smooth functioning. At the 6th VDI “Fachkonferenz Schadensmechanismen an Lagern”, manufacturers, users and scientists discussed which mechanisms are responsible for the occurrence of damage. Among other things, participants also learned how to avoid damage and limit the effects of potential damage. The opportunities offered by digitalisation in warehouse technology were also discussed, such as condition monitoring using integrated sensor technology and AI methods.

We are pleased to have contributed to the programme together with Thomas Decker, M.Sc. from the Chair for Windpower Drives at RWTH Aachen University with the presentation “Condition monitoring of plain bearings using surface acoustic waves”.
