The real and virtual worlds integrating at a steadily increased pace, the Internet of Things is pushing the evolutionary journey towards the fourth industrial revolution with various far reaching consequences. This fourth industrial revolution will not only herald change for the industrial sector, but will also have a major impact on how we live and work in general. Therefore, we are launching Africa 4.0 as a digital platform to the latest trends, technology and views regarding the IoT and Industry 4.0.

Now Launching: AFRICA 4. Information, Tech Trends Interviews and More... Utilizing the next Revolution. LET’S TALK: FUTURE MATERIALS Game changers for industry We are still in the steel age, but digital manufacturing technology like 3D printing will be a game changer for industry. New materials, like polymers, composites, ceramics and other metals are actively being developed, but mostly to be significant complements to steel. Watch the video to learn more. Then share your k n o w l e d g e i n s o c i a l m e d i a u s i n g #LetsTalkFutureMaterials. Here are the different topics covered: 1. Status of steel – its current role and new steel research 2. Materials technology - why alternative materials are needed, where they’re used, benefits 3. Industry and academia – closing the gap on collaboration 4. Game changers for designers – 3D printing, masscustomization, other materials engineering 5. Sustainability – lifecycle of components, reuse of ceramics 6. 5-10 year vision – future of steel, alloys, ceramics, polymers 7. Q&A – recycling & refurbishment, reducing weight of steel, bottom-up manufacturing MEET THE PANEL – LET’S TALK FUTURE MATERIALS Were excited to announce the experts who will discuss the topic of future materials for the manufacturing industry. Together they draw on their collective expertise, knowledge and experience to offer different perspectives on what we can expect in the future. Filmed at Cambridge University in the UK, it’s a future-focused discussion about where we are headed, what we’ll need to think about to get there, and what challenges we will face. Read More SKF TALKS FUTURE MATERIALS: GAME CHANGERS FOR THE INDUSTRY? We live in the steel age, so even though it will remain a fundamental part of the industry for years to come, alternative materials are actively being researched and developed to complement steel. Polymers, composites or ceramics are just a few. What role will they play in the future? And how viable are they for the manufacturing industry? SKF is sparking conversation and spreading ideas with a new series of a knowledge-sharing symposium called “Let’s Talk”. Industry experts are discussing industry trends such as Digitalization, Industry Ecology and Counterfeiting in front of a live audience at leading universities. The latest “Let’s Talk” event focuses on Future Materials and its role in meeting industry demands, such as reducing weight, size and cost of a product. Speakers are Harry Bhadeshia, Tata Steel Professor of Metallurgy, University of Cambridge; Martin Rawson, Technical Specialist on steels, Rolls-Royce; Professor Theo Dingemans, Department of Applied Physical Sciences, University of North Carolina and Steve Lane, Manager of the Metallic Materials and Ceramics Department, SKF. “Steel remains the predominant material in industry. More than 1.7 billion tonnes of steel are in use worldwide and it’s expected to grow to 2.8 billion in 2050.”, says Steve Lane, SKF. “Incremental steps are being made to develop new grades and to clean up the steel making processes in order to reduce CO2 emissions by more usage of recycled scrap metal. However, the weight to strength relationship of materials is becoming increasingly relevant for design engineers, which is opening up new possibilities to use ceramics, composites, polymers and light alloys, providing of course they are both technically and economically feasible for replacing steel”. The recorded symposiums are available on SKF’s YouTube channel. Further information can also be found on our website: www.skf.com or by following the hashtag #LetsTalkFutureMaterials across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. More “Let’s Talk” videos will be published in the upcoming months. For further information, please contact: sabine.hergenroder@skf.com
