The British Gear Association is the UK Centre of Technical Excellence for gear design, manufacture & application technologies. The Annual Technical Awareness Event (GEARS) is the leading conference for the Gear Industry in the UK and this long running seminar is considered an essential event for manufacturers, distributors and academics involved in the UK Gears Industry.

 

The Covid 19 crisis has affected the way we work forever especially in terms of travel and attending large events. Last year we embraced the opportunity to bring GEARS to a wider audience by hosting the event digitally and welcomed delegates and speakers from across the world. Due to the overwhelming success and great feedback from GEARS online we will be hosting virtually again for 2022. 

About the sessions.

Each day will focus on one area of the power transmission sector and you can attend all week or specific days or sessions.

 

Each session will consist of a 30-minute presentation (available for preview prior to the event when possible) followed by a live Question and Answer session with the speaker.

"Design of high efficiency spur gears using FE analysis" - Piet Van Zyl of PVZ Gears

 

"A Call to the Gear Community: Addressing Residual Stresses in Design Standards" Ronnie Rego of ITA

 

 

DAY 2 - Gear Measurement & Manufacture

 

Papers will include:
