New STLE White Paper Tackles EVs’ Impact on Tribology

By Simon Johns - Nov 08, 2023

The Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) released a new white paper on electric vehicles’ impact on tribology. The 60-page Tribology and Lubrication for E-Mobility: Findings from the Second STLE Conference on Electric Vehicles summarizes its 2022 conference in San Antonio, Texas.

STLE released the paper ahead of the third edition of its EV conference on Nov. 14-15 in Cleveland Ohio.

The society’s technical advisor Neil Canter wrote the paper, which covers efficiency, test methods, grease, thermal management and formulation development.  

“STLE’s second conference on electric vehicles built on the findings from the initial conference in 2021 and demonstrates how the tribology and lubrication field is taking on the challenge of developing products that meet the requirements for operating EVs,” Canter said. “By offering the tribology and lubrication community further opportunities to learn together, STLE hopes to advance the development of EV fluids, greases and test methods, paving the way for widespread EV adoption.”  

STLE provides the lubricant industry resources, training courses, events and periodicals on safety, energy usage, maintenance, natural resources, wear and productivity.
