Epicyclic Gear Systems: Application, Design and Analysis - December 3-5, 2019
Learn and define the concept of epicyclic gearing is including some basic history and the differences among simple planetary gear systems, compound planetary gear systems and star drive gear systems. Cover concepts on the arrangement of the individual components including the carrier, sun, planet, ring and star gears and the rigid requirements for the system to perform properly. Critical factors such as load sharing among the planet or star gears, sequential loading, equal planet/star spacing, relations among the numbers of teeth on each element, calculation of the maximum and optimum number of planet/star gears for a specific system will be covered. Provides an in-depth discussion of the methodology by which noise and vibration may be optimized for such systems and load sharing guidelines for planet load sharing.
Gear Failure Analysis Online Video Course2 credits offered
In the Gear Failure Analysis online video training, you will examine the various types of gear failure, such as overload, bending fatigue, Hertzian fatigue, wear, scuffing and cracking. Possible causes of these failures will be presented, along with some suggested ways to avoid them. 2.0 CEUs
Hybrid Forging: Advances in Open Die and Closed Die Forging for the Gear Industry1.5 credits offered Recorded On: 12/07/2017
This webinar intends to demonstrate how, using the advantages of open die forging combined with the near-net shape capability of closed die forging, the forging process can be tailored to optimize time and cost savings for the gearing industry.
Gearbox Field Inspections4.5 credits offered
This is a three-part series that includes webinars on Load Distribution, Condition Monitoring, and Lubrication. Part I: Gears can fail due to various damage patterns. In this study, the combined influence of shaft misalignments and gear lead crown on load distribution and tooth bending stresses is applied to real world circumstances. Part II: Both the operator and designer must consider gear tribology. In this second part of our series, the focus will be placed on lubrication. Part III: Gearbox diagnostics and service are critical to the field inspection process. In this third part of our series, instructors will explore these concepts in depth.
Metallurgy of Gear Materials1.5 credits offered
In this webinar Dr. Terry will cover the details of the metallurgy of heat treatment of gear steels and in particular through- hardened/quenched and tempered and carburized gears. The metallurgical mechanisms which develop the properties necessary to carry gear tooth loads will be examined and the load carrying capability of the various material options will be explained. Metallurgical characteristics specific to gear steels will be explored.
Design and Development Procedure for High-Precision Molded Plastic Gear Transmissions1.5 credits offered
This session will discuss high-precision molded plastic gear transmission design and development.
Analytical Gear Chart Interpretation1.5 credits offered
This is a two part webinar series. Part one is an introduction to the methodology of analytical gear inspection and the evaluation and interpretation of the resulting data. The application of this information to identify and correct manufacturing errors will begin to be explored. In part two, this webinar reviews chart interpretation and applies inspection data to understand the causes and cures of manufacturing errors. Many chart examples are used to understand cause and effect.
Conditions for Cutting Tools:Determining Hobbing Feeds and Speeds for Mid-Range Module Gears1.5 credits offered
This session will discuss the approach used to develop the cutting parameters for certain materials with specific hardness. It will include the starting feed, speed and hob shifting strategy.
Parallel Gear Inspection1.2 credits offered
The level one gear inspection module includes basic concepts for gear measurement, the tools and instruments used, the evaluation of gear characteristics, definitions of terms, and an introduction to gear quality classification. 1.2 CEUs
Fundamentals of Gearing1 credit offered
This course is a comprehensive overview of the industry. It begins with a little history of gearing and proceeds through the topics of Parallel axis gear basics, Involute tooth form, Description of the gear, Diametrical pitch/Module, Pitch, and Pressure angle. The course finishes by defining a series of 37 crucial terms used in gearing. 1.0 CEUs Students will also receive a copy of the ANSI/AGMA 1012-G05 Gear Nomenclature, Definitions of Terms with Symbols.
