12/4/2009 | Upcoming Webinar: Selection and Application of Lubricants for Linear Motion

WOOD DALE, IL - Incorrect lubrication is the most common cause of premature failure in linear motion applications. Thomson is partnering with Machine Design magazine to present a webinar that addresses what continues to be one of the most misunderstood topics in mechanical application design - lubricants and lubrication. 

What kinds of lubricants are available?  How do they work?  What are the most common mistakes people make? Attend a free Selection and Application of Lubricants for Linear Motion Products seminar for Design Engineers.

This training will guide you through the confusing process of lubricant selection. Reserve your spot today for this live webinar being held in two sessions on Thursday, December 10, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 p.m. CT. 

Reserve your spot today. Register now!

Lubricant selection is one of the most questioned topics in mechanical motion product design. Which best extend product life? Which are best for food grade or submerged applications? This webinar will answer those questions and more. Proper lubricant selection can significantly improve performance and extend product life. This webinar will cover lubrication for Plain Bearings, Ball Screws, Ball Splines, Linear Bearings, and Profile Rail.

In 1 hour you will learn: 

  • Introduction
    • What is lubrication?
    • Why should I lubricate?
  • Lubrication Basics
    • Selecting the proper lubrication for the application
    • Selecting the proper lubrication for the product
    • Applying lubrication
  • Troubleshooting - Lubrication Failure

This live online seminar is an event for mechanical motion design engineers at all experience levels.  The seminar has been designed to give solid, practical information - not a sales pitch. Register today to learn how to lubricant selection can impact product design.

Understanding lubrication is important because:

  • All linear motion components require lubrication to achieve rated life
  • Lubrication contamination is the leading cause of premature failure
  • Lubrication type and application method is critical to the system design

Register now to learn how to optimize your use of lubrication in linear motion design.
