Gear Design - A Practical approach

Date : 26 to 27 June, 2019

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


Power transmission is very important aspect in many industries. Gears drives are most important drives used in transmitting mechanical power. Gears and Gear drives are also one of the key components of all kinds of vehicles, machine tools, aircrafts, household appliances as well as a broad variety of industrial equipment.
Study of Gears, Gear terminology, correction, Quality, Strength calculations, Errors & its Measurement is a fairly complex data. Proper understanding about all these topics and selecting gears with required quality to the required application gives better productivity, long life and noise less drive for the industries.
Keeping this in view Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising 2 day programme on Gear Design - A Practical Approach on 26 - 27 June 2019 at Pune.
