Titled Bearings 2.0: What the future holds, SKF’s virtual technical press days will take place on October 7-8, 2020. Expert speakers will address industry trends and illustrate how SKF’s innovations in bearing and rotating machinery will change the way end-users and manufacturers operate.
Both days will include keynote addresses on topics such as the future role of bearings in industrial applications, how digitalization is driving development around the rotating shaft, and how these developments combine to enable the growth of outcome-based business models.
Within the expert sessions that follow, the role of modeling, artificial intelligence, and machine learning in enabling the improvement of bearing design, performance, lifespan, and predictability will be explored.
In particular, there will be a focus on prognostics and the benefits of accurately predicting bearing performance; life models, such as SKF’s GBLM (Generalized Bearing Life Model) which can now be applied to the selection of hybrid bearings; the circular economy, and the demand for bearing remanufacturing and recycling of bearing-related materials.
The latest developments within deep groove ball bearings and their applications within electric vehicles will also be presented.
