BearingNEWS magazine September issue

The technological transformation will restart the bearing and motion industries for a greater momentum

In this new edition of the BearingNEWS, we focus on the current dynamics of transformation within the bearing industry and tried to reveal the main trends which will lead the current period of change. The production, supply chain, distribution and even the way how we connect with potential leads are all in the middle of a period of major shift due to the global economic, pandemic, and political situation. All this results in further digitalization, change of consumer habits, a reshape of the supply chain and the conversion of machine systems and electrification of applications at high speed.

Is the technological transformation process taking a step back due to corona or just running up to a restart with even greater momentum? In an exclusive interview with Uwe Wagner, Chief Technology Officer of the Schaeffler Group, we tried to get the answers on this question from the perspective of a global automotive and industrial bearing manufacturer. The implementation of Industry 4.0 technologies in the bearing manufacturing processes are further discussed during an interview with Zhang Feng, Chief Executive Officer at XCC Group, China’s Shanghai Stock Exchange registered, sixth largest bearing manufacturer.

More than ever before, small and medium size bearing companies are willing to move into strategic mergers and long-term partnerships. We tried to understand the main drive behind the merger and acquisitions during two exclusive interviews with Edmonda Monda, Chief Financial Officer of ICT srl and Head of ICT Advisory Division and with Kal Beidas, CFA and Executive Director at Worldwide Alliance Group.
