A TEAM OF BRITISH STEELWORKS ENGINEERS visited Germany from Oct. 22nd to 25th to study lubrication practices and techniques in German steelworks. The tour was arranged by H. Peter Jost, (Centralube Ltd.), in conjunction with the lubrication section of Verein Deutscher Eisenhütten‐leute (The German Iron and Steel Institute) and the Iron and Steel Institute, London. The British team consisted of K. Bickerton (English Steel Corporation), G. Warrior (Lancashire Steel Corporation), E. R. Henschker (Loewy Engineering Co.), J. Davies (Davy & United Engineering Co.), G. Williams (Steel Company of Wales), A. Anderson (Dorman Long), A. Annable (Samuel Fox & Co.), H. Jones (Appleby‐Frodingham Steel Co.), P. Lillywhite (B.I.S.R.A.), J. Icke (Railko), and H. P. Jost.

THE DEVELOPMENT of modern cutting and forming machines and new and tougher materials has confronted Production Engineers with numerous problems, one of them being the lubrication of cutting and forming tools.
Although there is no likelihood of mankind running out of energy in the foreseeable future, the immediate danger—pressing for remedial action—is its shortage in the form we are traditionally accustomed to using. To combat this danger, governments of most industrial countries have embarked on a series of strategies. The main targets of most of these are the savings of wasted (rejected) energy, as for instance that wasted in space heating systems through insufficient insulation or in thermal cycles of machinery.
Outlines the history of the specialist lubrication group of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers – which was originally called the Lubrication Group and is now the Tribology Group. Describes how the organization was formed and lists its achievements, special activities and publications. Concludes by looking to the future, stating that the group has developed a dynamic five‐year plan to take it into the next century.

The British steelworks engineers, and others, included in the photograph, recently visited Germany to study methods and practices of lubrication in German steelworks, and to discuss operating problems with the Works Engineers. They also met members of the Verband Deutcher Eisenhuttenleuts (Lubrication Section) and interchanged views on common problems. The visit was arranged by Dr. Alfred Achemann (Chairman of De Limon Fluhme, Dusseldorf) on the German side, and H. Peter Jost (Managing Director of Centralube Ltd.) on the British side.
In Part 1 the authors dealt with the background of tribology and its intended purpose, ie to conserve energy by minimization of wear and friction in moving parts of plant and machinery — the basis of the 1966 Jost Report. In Part 2 they set out to show in great detail how this may be achieved dramatically by intensive research and development.
BRIEF news of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers' Tribology Group visit to China as guests of the Chinese Mechanical Engineers Society (CMES), appeared on the “Comment and opinion” page of our September/October issue last year. It was the first since the initial trip in 1979. We asked for a more detailed account and a report of the 3,500 mile journey through the country of a thousand million people, many anxious to know more about the new industrial technologies, now comes from S.J. Crampton, BSc (Eng), FIMechE, FInst Pet, manager, Projects and Research, IMechE, who was a member of the eight‐man party.
