About this event




This  third workshop shall bring together,

– manufacturers and vendors of gas bearing components
– companies employing gas bearings
– companies that supply gas bearing based machine tools
– scientists and researchers who are working on gas bearings.

Within a one-day workshop the state of the art as well as the requirements from an application point of view will be presented in short talks and discussions. There will be time for informal talks. The workshop wants to establish a network of gas bearing engineers with the goal to intensify the communication and cooperation between manufacturers, users and scientists.


Within the workshop facilities we offer the possibility of making use of a table-top exhibition and we encourage the attendees to present their own activities on posters (one poster), that can be displayed in the workshop room during the breaks and the informal gathering after the workshop.
