The King Mongkut's Institute of Technology North Bangkok (KMITNB), founded in 1959 with the support of the government of the Federal Republic of Germany, is one of the premier higher education institutions in Thailand with a strong base in applied sciences, technology and engineering. The faculty of engineering, the largest of the four faculties of the institute, was founded with an aim to provide a range of professional engineering education service to meet the community and industry at the early phase of industrialization in Thailand. The degrees were established to fill a need for better-educated engineers in the practice of engineering as well as in research and development. The Machinery Health Monitoring and Tribology Laboratory (MHM and Tribo. Lab.) forms part of the Production Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering. Currently, machinery health monitoring research is combined with tribology studies. In general terms, the current activities of the condition monitoring and tribology research group include: condition monitoring studies relating to oil and wear debris analysis, hydraulic failure studies as related to contaminants, routine oil, wear debris and contamination analysis for industry, developments of new and improved condition monitoring techniques, especially used oil, wear debris and contamination analysis, fundamental of friction, lubrication and wear studies, maintenance strategy studies for productivity improvement.
