VDI Knowledge Forum on roller bearings

Technical lecture by Klaus Liesegang at the “VDI Knowledge Forum” in Munich.


Experts meeting experts. That’s how the Association of German Engineers (VDI) describes  its meetings, congresses and conferences. A “VDI Knowledge Forum” on roller bearings is being held September 17-19 in Munich.

In his technical lecture, Klaus Liesegang, former Segment Director, Power Transmission, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, explains how Simmerrings®, which are in a symbiosis with roller bearings, contribute to the long-term operating reliability and efficiency of roller bearings so that they can withstand maximum stresses and operate energy-efficiently on a sustained basis. The Freudenberg expert explains the functionality, configuration and materials of Simmerrings® and presents optimized sealing solutions for specific working conditions. Wind-turbine and industrial gearboxes are a focus of the presentation.

A factory tour at Schaeffler Technologies AG & Co. KG. provides a practical object lesson.
