STLE is nearly here!

STLE 2021 is now just 3 days away, and we wanted to share our excitement with you!

PCS Instruments is proud to be supporting the tribology industry as a Palladium Plus level sponsor of the event and will also be exhibiting, so we hope to see you at our booth.

It is critical that we bring the members of our field together at events like this to foster innovation and knowledge, improve equipment and products’ performance, conserve resources, and protect the environment.

So with that in mind, we are proud to be sponsoring an event like this which will unite over 1,000 lubricant industry professionals from nearly 40 countries. 

So please do visit us at our exhibition booth during the conference! We will be staffing it throughout the entire event and will be happy to chat about your tribology plans or problems and how we can help you to succeed. If you cannot attend, don’t worry; we can still be contacted by email at and by phone, at +44 (0)20 8600 9920, so do not hesitate to get in touch! 

Quickfire Questions

When is STLE? 

This year the STLE annual meeting will start with an opening session and keynote address at 8:30am EDT on Monday 17th May, and will finish at 3:30pm EDT on Thursday 20th May 

How big is the STLE Annual Meeting?

The annual STLE conference and exhibition is one of the largest events on the tribology calendar each year. With over 1,000 attendees from the lubricant industry hailing from nearly 40 countries, it offers a great opportunity to network and learn more about the field. 

What topics are covered? 

There are over 300 different presentations scheduled across the 4 days of the conference. These cover a vast range of different topics, including everything from engine and drive train tribology to additive manufacturing. We would also like to give a special mention to the biotribology and wear sessions, as those fields are building on the success of the joint ICOBT and WOM conference earlier this month.

How can you talk to us at the conference? 

The STLE platform has been designed to allow attendees to find and communicate easily with exhibitors during the conference. This is done in the Exhibit Hall. When you are on the conference platform, simply go to the exhibit hall, find our booth, and come and chat to us! We will be there the whole way through the conference, ready to answer all the questions you might have.  

What about the PCS Instruments drinks evening?  

Sadly, we cannot all meet up and go out together for some pre-dinner drinks and nibbles this year, but rest assured when we can all meet again in person, the yearly Tuesday evening event will return. Hopefully, you are all looking forward to it as much as we are!
