Gear Stress Analysis


GEAR STRESS ANALYSIS (Day 1)
ISO 6336 Seminar


Do you understand gear rating or need to know more? Applying the latest analysis methods could save you money and make your company more competitive. This seminar will give you the opportunity to understand and explore the stress analysis procedures published in ISO 6336:2006 and discuss ideas and implications with other members of the industry. However, the latest standards are rather daunting to those who are new to them so the purpose of this seminar is to make it much easier to understand how it works.

GEAR STRESS ANALYSIS (Day 2)
Gear Optimization


Applying the latest ISO 6336 stress analysis standard implements best practice but it will not guarantee a low noise or low risk gear set. This requires the selection of appropriate macro gear geometry and the specification of micro geometry corrections to compensate for random manufacturing errors and elastic deflection of gears, shafts and gearbox under load. This seminar will introduce and apply strategies for maximizing gear performance, increasing power density and minimizing manufacturing costs and risk.

Bearings and Condition Monitoring


This seminar on bearings and condition monitoring is based on two modules included in the BGA course on Wind Turbine Gearbox Technology and reference will be made to some of the problems and solutions encountered in this very demanding application for power transmissions.

The course is suitable for engineers of any discipline and no previous detailed knowledge of bearings or CM is necessary. It is applicable to all those involved in monitoring rotating machinery, suppliers of bearings and other transmission components, service engineers, gearbox refurbishment specialists and specification and purchasing engineers.

Gear Measurement


Day 1: The seminar will introduce delegates to gear geometry inspection. Although the seminar focuses on cylindrical gears, the principles apply to other gear types. No prior gear knowledge is required.
It provides manufacturers with the knowledge to select appropriate measurement methods and equipment, appreciate the importance of applying good measurement practice and how to correctly interpret measurement results. It is applicable to inspection, manufacturing, design and supervisory staff- anyone who has to make decisions about acceptance of gears to a standard.

Day 2: Using gear measuring instruments in a simple pass/fail process fails to maximise the investment made in measuring equipment and the potential to improve the manufacturing process performance. Strategies for interpreting measurement results and identifying the cause of the measured errors will be presented. Simple calibration procedures will be demonstrated to quantify measurement capability and identify some common causes of measurement errors. This minimises the risk associated with accepting gears which are outside tolerance or rejecting gears which are acceptable. The seminar is appropriate for anyone involved with measuring processes in inspection, manufacturing or design/concession work.

Gear Wear and Failure Recognition


The seminar gives delegates an insight into the appearance and underlying causes of gear failure modes. No prior gear knowledge is required.

It provides gear manufacturers and users with the necessary skills to examine, assess and recognise common gear failure modes. The seminar content is applicable to gear designers, gear service personnel, operators and users of valuable equipment, inspection and certification bodies who need to confidently examine gears and gearboxes and those new to the gear industry.
