Specialty Lubrication in New Product Design Wednesday, September 19, 2007, 2:00 PM EST Lubricants are often the forgotten components in the design of moving elements. Last-minute redesign and changes can be avoided by considering lubricant performance needs during the design phase. High-performance equipment generates more local heat because of the higher speeds and loads in smaller components. Traditional lubricants that may have worked in the past often fail in the next-generation component causing delays in product launch or significant customer dissatisfaction during use. By using premium, high-performance synthetic lubricants, improved performance and extended life can be achieved. Sponsored by DuPont, NASA Tech Briefs presents this FREE webinar, which will:

Each month, NTB highlights tech briefs related to a particular area of technology in a special section called Technology Focus. Here are some of the technologies featured in the July issue focus on Sensors. "Smart" Sensor Module Stennis Space Center has developed an assembly that contains a sensor, signal conditioning circuitry, a sensor readout analog-to-digital converter, data storage circuitry, and a microprocessor that runs software. The module monitors the integrity and health of engineering systems. They have potential uses in spacecraft, aircraft, bridges, buildings, power plants, and land vehicles. (Page 22)
