Colonial Chemical Presents - Enabling New Generation Metalworking Fluid Formulation – Corporate Sponsored Webinar - Free


Metalworking fluids play pivotal roles in metalworking processes. The increasingly stringent regulatory requirements and ever-increasing performance demand for the machining of  high-strength steel and lightweight materials have made the development of new metalworking fluids  more complex and challenging than ever before. Such impact has been directly cascaded into metalworking fluid additives. This presentation will discuss a select of technologies available to you as you are attempting to achieve your best-performing metalworking fluid formulations to satisfy the regulatory requirements and deliver the much-needed performance

Falex Presents – Innovating for Tribology – Chapter 1: Introducing the Falex Multi Contact Tribology Tester (MCTT) - Corporate Sponsored Webinar - Free


Innovating for industry propels Falex to update existing and develop new tribology test devices. The new Falex Multi Contact Tribology Tester (MCTT) is the result of improving the versatile Falex Multi-Specimen Test Machine which has been widely used for over 50 years. The newly designed MCTT still allows the many different tribological combinations including point-line-area contacts and motion profiles, but offers a greatly reduced footprint, complete computer control with high speed data acquisition. Through the use of the Falex newly designed shared platform and latest electronic systems, it now offers great value at a lower cost. Application examples are included and will illustrate the versatility of this new instrument.

Intermediate Storage & Handling of Lubricants and Greases – STLE Educational Webinar - $39 for Members $59 for Non-Members


Follow-up to the fundamental Instruction on ‘Storage & Handling’ of Lubricants & Greases & the importance of this key ‘element’, which is a cornerstone for the 8 stages of a Progressive Lubrication Program & the 6 Rights of Lubrication.

Without 100% personnel focus on this key ‘element’ of your maintenance program, equipment reliability & sustainability will suffer. Review steps to properly receive and inventory lube oil/grease containers. Application practices to include proper color codes and equipment tags, plus personnel training which is fundamental for a successful lubrication program. Investments in the storage & handling tools & practices discussed will pay great dividends, hence reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO). The single greatest opportunity for increased component life & lowering operating costs is to manage fluid cleanliness from ‘cradle to grave’. This discussion will help address opportunities to increase equipment reliability & productivity in order to maximize the benefits a facility can achieve by the investment in Storage & Handling resources.
