LUBMAT 2018: SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN 5th-6th JUNE 2018

LUBMAT is a common initiative between TEKNIKER and JOST Institute for lubrication and tribology which realized that even though there were numerous international congresses dealing with the scientific approach for lubrication and wear, there were not any specific industrially focused. LUBMAT intends to address the industrial public without losing sight of the academic and scientific vision. LUBMAT is a well-established event that is in its 6th edition. Contributions are expected on all aspects of these three main topics:

  • Lubricants and lubrication management.
  • Tribology.
  • Condition monitoring.
