  • Modern Automated Gear Quality Assessment Technology - May 12-13, 2021

    Includes Credits

    This new and expanded one-day online course is intended to provide you with a thorough understanding of the attributes of a gear and its design are critical to ensure the required operation and function of the gear system as expected. The features and attributes of importance to function of the gear system will be discussed and explained in terms of how to measure and inspect them. We will cover measurement techniques and inspection interpretations as a precursor to the operation of a Gear Measurement Machine (GMM). We will also explore the differences and similarities between a GMM and Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM). Building on the objectives of measurement and inspection techniques, we will transition to reading and interpreting a typical gear inspection report. Specifically, we will look at the contents and meaning of the information contained within the gear charts on the drawings, as well as the techniques used by the gear measurement system to assess gear quality. An explanation of basic gear measurement techniques, how measurement equipment and test machines implement these techniques, and how to interpret the results from these basic measurements will be covered. We will also discuss how to interpret the results and what corrective actions may be considered if the quality of a particular gear is unsatisfactory. Prior to attending this course it would be helpful if you were familiar and conversant with the AGMA Nomenclature standard and the Fundamentals of Gearing resource, both of which are readily available to anyone and free to AGMA members.

  • External Helical Gear Mesh Contact Analysis - April 29, 2021

    Includes Credits

    Evaluation of loaded tooth contact and development of tooth modifications using commercially available software to improve Khb and optimize power density.  Two real life gearing examples will be presented in the course, one will have a cantilever mounted pinion, the other a shaft pinion straddled non-symmetrically by bearings.  Both examples demonstrate component deflections under load which significantly reduce tooth mesh contact which is then corrected with developed helix and profile modifications.

  • Steels for Gear Applications - June 15-16, 2021

    Gain a basic understanding of steel and its properties. Learn to make use of steel properties in an application and understand the potential that different steel and heat treatment options can offer. Explore how performance of the material depends on how the steel is produced.

  • Fundamentals of Gear Design and Analysis - July 20-22, 2021

    Gain a solid and fundamental understanding of gear geometry, types and arrangements, and design principles. Starting with the basic definitions of gears, conjugate motion, and the Laws of Gearing, learn the tools needed to understand the inter-relation and coordinated motion operating within gear pairs and multi-gear trains. Basic gear system design process and gear measurement and inspection techniques will also be explained. In addition, the fundamentals of understanding the step-wise process of working through the iterative design process required to generate a gear pair will be reviewed. Learn the steps and issues involved in design refinement and some manufacturing considerations. An explanation of basic gear measurement techniques, how measurement equipment and test machines implement these techniques, and how to interpret the results from these basic measurements will also be covered.

  • Operator Hobbing & Shaper Cutting - October 13-14, 2021

    Learn and understand fundamentals of gear manufacturing. Acquire knowledge and understanding of gear nomenclature, hobbing and shaping of spur and helical gears, and splines. Learn and understand hobber and shaper machine set-up, as well as gear tooth element inspection. Understand the manufacturing process before gear tooth cutting, as well as post cutting processes. Apply concepts to further finishing processes, I.e. heat treat, gear tooth shaving and grinding and/or skiving. Gain knowledge to establish a solid foundation for all basic gear manufacturing.

  • Gearbox CSI - May 18-20, 2021

    A good understanding of individual failure modes and the failure scenarios that led to the actual system failure is an essential skill to designing gear/bearing systems that will operate properly for their full design life. In this course, we will define and explain the nature of many gear and bearing failures and we will also discuss and describe various actual failure scenarios. In addition, a detailed primer on bearing technology prefaces the failure scenario discussions. You will gain a better understanding of various types of gears and bearings. Learn about the limitation and capabilities of rolling element bearings and the gears that they support. Grasp an understanding of how to properly apply the best gear-bearing combination to any gearbox from simple to complex.

  • Hybrid Forging: Advances in Open Die and Closed Die Forging for the Gear Industry

    Includes Credits 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.
