Intelligent Tribology Knowledge Transferred in Warsaw

ESTL presented its world-renowned Space Tribology training course in Warsaw last week and it was a huge success. A record 69 delegates attended the two-day course, who were from five countries, (Poland, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Romania and Slovakia), representing 30 different organisations. A representative from The European Space Agency, who provided the funding for the course, also attended.

Lectures included fundamentals of tribology, lubrication of spacecraft components (fluids and solids), tribo-component design and performance, materials for tribo-contacts, and lessons learnt.

Here’s some genuine feedback from some of the many course participants;

  • “Thank you for such an interesting course… I learned many new things”
  • “Best course I have attended”
  • “I cannot imagine how you could have done better”
  • “Everything was perfect”
  • “Huge amount of unique knowledge presented in an easily understandable way”
  • “A lot of interesting information, even for people who are dealing with tribology for years”

ESTL’s next course will be held in Munich on 16th and 17th September 2019, in conjunction with the European Space Mechanisms and Tribology Symposium (ESMATS) www.esmats.eu.

ESTL’s Space Tribology Course travels to Poland!

As originally announced on this website, ESTL is taking its world-renowned Space Tribology training course to Warsaw in Poland next week. We expect that this two-day event will be attended by 68 delegates, from five new ESA member states, representing 29 different organisations. It’s going to be a great course, so watch this space to find out how it went, including real feedback from the many delegates.

ESTL has presented its technically detailed course across Europe, including in Austria, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain and the UK over the last decade. We have also presented the course in the USA, at Cleveland Ohio and to NASA in Greenbelt near Washington. Poland will join this prestigious list of tribology course venues next week!

Good luck to Simon Lewis, Michael Buttery and Andrew Gibson who will be providing the course to the many Eastern European delegates! We hope that it will be a great success.

ESR Wins Award in The Future of Rail Young Engineers Competition

Greg Kelly, a rising star within ESR Technology’s National Centre of Tribology (NCT), was awarded second place in a regional competition hosted by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) this week.

The competition was based on “The Future of Rail”, with candidates using a recent project to show how their company can contribute to the future of the rail industry. The technical presentations were judged on technical content, presentation skills and future planning.

Greg presented NCT’s recent forensic investigation into a catastrophic failure on a train, highlighting the technologies and techniques used, demonstrating our capabilities for the future. The evening was filled with interesting presentations, promising a bright future for the rail industry through the application of exciting new technologies.

NCT’s heritage stretches back over 50 years, but its vision is firmly fixed on the future. It has recently entered into an exciting new collaboration with the Henry Royce Institute. Events like this demonstrates the uniqueness of NCT’s expertise, and why it will be needed to solve problems across the engineering industry in the future.
