Latest bearing testing methodology and technology - Fraunhofer IWES tour

As wind turbine size is set to grow dramatically, and bearings are perhaps the most vulnerable element in the whole wind turbine system, the testing work of the “Large Bearing Laboratory” Fraunhofer IWES (LBL) work has become essential. Read more about the institute’s latest advancement in this article here for free.


An exclusive guided tour to the Institute will take place during our upcoming 2nd Wind Turbine Bearings Conference. The tour will be guided by the conference chairman and Fraunhofer IWES Senior Engineer for contact rolling bearings testing, Matthias Stammler. 

In the course of 5 years, the institute has become the greatest bearing testing specialist in Europe, offering the closest to field experience testing. Learn more here:
