STLE 2017 Visit Nanovea

The STLE Annual Meeting & Exhibition is the lubricants industry’s most respected venue for technical information, professional development and international networking opportunities. Each year STLE’s five-day conference showcases some 500 technical presentations, application-based case studies, best practice reports and discussion panels on technical or market trends. Our annual trade show and popular Commercial Marketing Forum spotlight the latest products and services of interest to more than 1,600 lubrication professionals that come from around the world, representing a full range of the industry’s most prestigious corporate, government and academic institutions.

ANTEC 2017 Visit Nanovea

ANTEC 2017, produced by the SPE (Society of Plastics Engineers), is the largest, most respected and well known technical conference in the plastics industry. For 75 years, ANTEC has successfully expanded from the U.S. into Europe, India and the Middle East with further expansion to global locations in the coming years. Each event boasts technical and business presentations on new and updated technologies, panels and tutorials, networking events and student functions—all providing attendees with face-to-face interaction with expert representatives from the largest industry segments.

Creep Deformation of Polymers by Nanoindentation

Creep deformation often occurs due to the lack of alertness of the time-dependent creep behavior of the polymer materials used under specific service conditions. As a result, it is important to develop a reliable and quantitative test of the viscoelastic mechanical behaviors of the polymers. Nanoindentation using the Nanovea Mechanical Tester applies the load by a high-precision piezo and directly measures the evolution of force and displacement in situ. The combination of accuracy and repeatability makes it an ideal tool for creep measurement.

Tribology of Polymers by Tribometer

Tribology of Polymers are commonly seen for tribological applications, such as tires, bearings and conveyor belts. Different wear mechanisms occur depending on the mechanical properties of the polymer, the contact conditions, and the properties of the debris or transfer film formed during the wear process. In order to ensure that the polymers possess sufficient wear resistance under the service conditions, reliable and quantifiable tribological evaluation is in need. It allows us to quantitatively compare the wear behaviors of different polymers in a controlled and monitored manner and to select the best candidate for the target application. The Nanovea Tribometer offers repeatable wear and friction testing using ISO and ASTM compliant rotative and linear modes, with optional high temperature wear and lubrication modules available in one pre-integrated system. This unmatched range allows users to simulate different work environment of the polymers including concentrated stress, wear and high temperature, etc.

Transparent Film Thickness by 3D Non Contact Profilometry

Transparent film thickness and uniformity is critical for product quality and performance. For example, in CD, DVD and Blu-Ray Disc (BO) production, precise control of the thickness and uniformity of the transparent cover and space layers plays an important role in avoiding focus errors of the laser. Improper injection molding process during CD and BO production may lead to stress-induced birefringence and unreliable data reading. An accurate thickness measurement of the transparent film ensures reliable product inspection and quality control.
