@ BIEC, 10th Mile, Tumkur Road, Madavara Post, Bangalore


Gears and Gear drives are one of the key components of all kinds of vehicles, machine tools, aircrafts, household appliances as well as a broad variety of industrial equipments. Today the designers are facing challenges of demands about increasing lifetime, power transmission and noise emission, whereas the size and weight of gear drives is constantly reduced. The accuracy of gears is crucial for achieving the above functional demands.

Proper understanding of gear metrology and Measurement of gears is important for ensuing required accuracy and quality, Lower overall cost of manufacture by controlling rejects and scrap, Control machines and machining practices and Determine hear treat distortions to make necessary corrections.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on Gear Metrology and Measuring Methods on 17 - 18 September 2019 at Bangalore.
