SENER attends ESMATS 2017

Engineering and technology company SENER is attending the European Space Mechanisms and Tribology Symposium (ESMATS) once again this year. ESMATS 2017 will be held in the town of Hertfordshire (United Kingdom) for three days until 22 September.  

ESMATS is a biennial symposium on space mechanisms and tribology: disciplines working on satellites' mobile mechanical components, their materials, and the effects friction and wear and tear have on their service life. Professionals working in the field carry out research to, among other things, make sure space probes are carried out efficiently, can travel using less energy, can carry out more precise movements, and prolong the life of the various components. Doing this brings together diverse areas of expertise in space engineering, such as structures, kinematics, dynamics, physics, chemistry, thermics, control technologies, and materials technologies.  

SENER (acting as sponsor for the event) will have a stand at the event which will be attended by leading companies in the sector such as Thales Alenia and Airbus Defense & Space, space agencies NASA and the ESA, as well as universities and technological centers from around the world. Engineers from SENER's Structures and Mechanisms division and the SENER team in Poland will also present seven technical articles.  

Particular highlights SENER is working on that attendees will be able to hear more about include the Meteosat Third Generation sweeping or scanning mechanism, the Solar Orbiter Instrument Boom subsystem, works for MetOp - the European meteorological satellites, mechanical land support equipment for the Euclid mission, and the solar panel deployment mechanism for Proba-3.
