Innovation

Fresh Thinking

Megatrends such as mobility, energy & environmental technology and mechatronics are major challenges: They will shape our future life and make it unequivocally clear to us that a fresh way of thinking will be inescapable in many fields. At the same time, megatrends offer enormous opportunities – on condition that we make a start now on coming to grips with them in a systematic way.

For Schaeffler, this means: Identifying relevant technological, societal and economic trends and using our own research to participate in actively shaping them – for example through our eMobility Systems Division. The objective we are pursuing through our commitment: to supply intelligent answers that turn the major challenges of today and tomorrow into equally major or even greater opportunities.

  ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY
Megatrend: Energy and Environmental Technology
Interview:
Dr. Claus Müller
Interview:
Reinhold Korn
Megatrend: Energy and environmental technology

With its know-how and commitment, Schaeffler is making a decisive contribution to assisting the economic breakthrough of energy and environmental technology as a megatrend. more

 
Interview: Dr. Claus Müller

Media lubrication of rolling bearings: "Innovation is focussed on designing a rolling bearing so that it can "survive" without the established method of lubrication using oil or grease." more

 
Interview: Reinhold Korn

Large size bearing test rig "Astraios": "We can use this test rig to achieve greater security and cost-efficiency of wind turbines." more

 
 
 
 
  MECHATRONICS
Megatrend: Mechatronics
Interview:
Markus Neubauer
Megatrend: Mechatronics

Where there is a need for economical and efficient increases in productivity, there is no way of avoiding the use of intelligent machinery. Newly developed rolling bearings with integrated sensors and an integrated or adjacent energy supply offer completely new possible solutions – for example for rail vehicles, machine tools and e-bikes. more
