Steel, aluminum, and metalworking present unique challenges to equipment reliability and lubrication of these capital-intensive production environments. Gearboxes, roller bearings, wire drawing dies, machining centers, hydraulic reservoirs and electric motors are all operated in an environment that frequently includes very high temperatures, corrosive chemicals, and the accumulation of dirt and once molten debris in oils and greases. When an experienced and capable workforce is armed with the knowledge of lubrication best practices, including filtration, lubricant sampling and analysis, and condition-based lubrication replenishment, life extension of critical components and reduction in O&M costs can be substantial.
Metals professionals will gather for a two-day workshop to tackle machinery care and reliability improvement issues through laboratory time, classroom workshops, and hands-on training. The goal of this workshop will be to share and learn best practices in reliability-based lubrication and lubricant analysis techniques, with the goal of delivering cost-saving solutions to the attendees and their companies.
