International conference will include Powder Metallurgy gear technology

July 10, 2017

The International Conference on Gears 2017 will be held in Garching, near Munich, Germany, from September 13-15, 2017. Following a successful event in 2015, the 7th conference will again be organised by VDI Wissenforum and is expected to attract over 600 national and international organisations from the transmission and driveline industries.

The Sessions at International Conference on Gears 2017 will include lectures from leading figures in industry and research presenting early-stage work, new solutions and their latest research results concerning:

  • Design, analysis, geometry and simulation of gears and transmissions
  • Industrial applications of such transmissions for energy or mobility systems, etc
  • Manufacturing, such as productivity increases with new concepts for machine and manufacturing processes, machine running time or throughput time – balancing productivity and flexibility
  • NVH behaviour and noise reduction
  • New materials, lubrication and coatings for higher durability
  • Testing, new test methods and/or procedures for service life, efficiency or predictive maintenance

A panel discussion, “Will gears be a high-tech product in the future?”, will focus on the main question as to what will influence gear technology in the future. In an open dialogue between different experts and stakeholder organisations, the panel will discuss the current situation, future trends and solutions in the field of gear technology. Panellists will include:

  • Andrew Dempsey, Vice President, Powder Metal Division, Stackpole International, Ancaster, Canada
  • George Diaz, General Manager, Gleason Plastic Gears, Rochester, New York, USA
  • Claude Gosselin, Ph.D., P.Eng., President, Involute Simulation Softwares Inc., Quebec, Canada
  • Dr.-Ing. Burkhard Pinnekamp, Head of Central Technology, Renk AG, Augsburg, Germany

In addition to the conference programme of the International Conference on Gears 2017, an accompanying conference will be held titled Gear Production 2017.  Key topics to be discussed at Gear Production 2017 include:

  • Process optimisation by digital gear manufacturing
  • Future potential of Powder Metallurgy gear technology
  • Improved running behaviour by manufacturing of functional surfaces
  • New approaches for productivity increases and enhanced flexibility in gear manufacturing
  • Advances in cylindrical gear production
  • Manufacturing relating to product properties
