    Les Genn, American Castings
  • This is a very informative and useful conference. There is lots of information in each class, and lots of it is put into a ‘real-world’ scenario, making it relatable. Coming from a lubrication background, the oil analysis and other lab testing information really helped further my understanding of this tool. Going forward, I feel I will be much more knowledgeable on our own lab testing and what we can get out of it.
