It was a successful conference with high participation of end-users, engineering companies, contractors and suppliers.

Flaviano Carvalho and Pedro Maia, showed their expertise and findings with a paper presentation regarding “Optimal Lubrication Techniques to Improve Reliability and Motor Life Expectancy “. This paper focused on one of the most common sources of early failure in electric motors: the bearings.

The paper addressed our engineer’s significant knowledge and experience on bearings lubrication processes and best techniques contributing to a long and reliable operating life of electric motors whilst improving productivity and reducing operating costs.

During the Conference, attendees were asked to rate each paper presentation and for the second year in a row WEG engineer’s presentation was among the most voted papers.
