ESTL has run the Space Tribology Course successfully for the last 20 years. Led by experienced space engineers, the course draws on the heritage of ESTL in the field of Space Mechanisms, Advanced Tribology and Space Lubricants.

Participants will learn:
  • Techniques of applied design of tribological components including mechanisms, bearings and gears
  • How to define and apply criteria for the selection of designs
  • How to define and apply criteria for the selection of materials
  • How theories of lubrication affect critical design and manufacturing decisions
  • Qualification test procedures including thermal vacuum testing of mechanisms
The course includes training in:
  • Solid Lubricants including molybdenum disulphide, thin lead films and self lubricating bearing cages
  • Fluid Lubricants including Pennzane and Fomblin Z25
  • Space qualified materials including structural materials, vacuum compatibility and use of heritage data
Participants will also receive a free copy of the Space Tribology Handbook.

As with previous years the course will be held on the 2 days prior to the ESMATS Symposium so that delegates can amalgamate attendance of this course with attendance at the ESMATS Symposium. In addition the course will be held in the same hotel as the ESMATS 2007 Symposium - the Crowne Plaza Hotel - and attendees will be able to register and pay for the course through this web site along with their registration for ESMATS.

This course is not part of the ESMATS 2007 Symposium and an additional fee of 700 + VAT (17.5%) is payable.
