Tackling issues in space engineering

Gear specialist Harmonic Drive UK will be presenting its research on dry lubrication and what the future holds for this technology at the European Space Mechanisms and Tribology Symposium (ESMATS) from September 20nd-22th, at the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, UK.

The session will present the findings of the company’s research into dry lubrication.

One of the biggest challenges when making gears for use in space is effective lubrication. Gear lubricants are often at risk due to the adverse operating conditions of space, with the low ambient pressure and extreme temperature range posing a particular challenge by causing changes in viscosity and evaporation rate. These changes ultimately affect gear performance and longevity.

Pneumatic Conveying System Design

There is a tradition of different companies using different design equations and assumptions. There has in recent years been a lot of new information generated using improved methods for measurement of material conveying properties, the use of these for design and the effects of design details such as bends and stepped bore sizes. The ultimate aim will be to share the most up-to-date knowledge on how to obtain pipeline designs that work reliably, delivering the required throughput without unplanned maintenance and undesired impact on quality of the powder being handled.

The event is intended to be interactive; delegates are asked to bring along and discuss the approaches they use in their own company and the practical difficulties they face, with a view to establishing a shared vision of best practice to boost the competitiveness of the UK's supply industry and minimise warranty claim costs and user complaints.

There will be a heavy emphasis on case studies to illustrate the issues under discussion.
