Frontiers in ecological bearings and machine elements

Energy consumption reduction and environmental protection are urgent issue. Effect of energy conservation measures in the transportation machinery and industrial machinery is extremely large, various research and technical development has been carried out. The role of the bearing supporting the movement is important in mechanical systems, energy saving technology of the bearing has been attracted attention, for instance low torque, low quantity lubrication etc. This symposium would like to be utilized as an opportunity to introduce new bearing technologies in order to contribute energy and environmental issues in the future.
