Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers



The Chicago Section of the STLE is the
largest in the organization with close to
350 members.


We are fortunate to have a vibrant community of
engineers and scientists that participate in numerous
technical meetings, manufacturing tours and social
events throughout the year.
