The Association of Mechanical Engineers of Slovenia, ZSIS, hosted the 4th Academy of mechanical engineering on the 23. 10. 2014 in Cankarjev dom in Ljubljana. The motto of the Academy was: Engineering - Development and innovation for new jobs.

zsisThe event was dedicated to the engineering achievements in Slovenia and in the discussion, some of the prominent representatives of this profession highlighted the need for more effective networking and cooperation of individual institutions and companies with the goal to increase competitiveness in the global market. At the event also many application projects were presented, in which representatives from universities and companies worked together in finding solutions. The coworkers of the laboratory Tint presented four projects:

  • a project called Methodology for evaluation of tribological mechanisms and quality of sliding bearings in conjunction with the company Domel,
  • a project called Evaluation of tribological characteristics of polymer materials for gears in the model and real experimental conditions in conjunction with the company Iskra Mehanizmi
  • a project called Tribological properties of modern sliding electrical contacts in conjunction with the company Kolektor and
  • a project called Development and optimization of the cooling-lubricating agents for profile grinding in conjunction with the company Olma.
