Brand New: Customized Content for the STLE Audience

We're working to create more customized content for you via technical newsletters. These newsletters will feature content all related to one topic (for instance, Metalworking Fluids), and will be put together by our technical committees. The articles included in each newsletter will be easily digestible and will be posted online quarterly (or on a regular schedule).

First Newsletter Release: MWFs
In this first release, which will be sent out Monday, July 23, the newsletter is focused on Metalworking and Metalworking Fluids. As we build up more content, there will be newsletters devoted to each technical committee, including bearings, gears, grease, and so on. See the full list of committees for more information. If you'd like to suggest a newsletter topic, just let us know.

This newsletter includes articles written by John Burke; Neil Canter; Alan Eachus; Alan Eckard, Vice President of Technology with Monroe Fluid Technology; Frederick Passman; and John Steigerwald, Vice President of Etna Products, Inc. The articles included are:
