The BGA form special interest groups (SIGs) to provide a forum to discuss and develop themes to support UK gear manufacturers and users. The individual SIGs decide for themselves what they do and how they operate. Membership of a SIG is free to BGA members.
The Advanced Manufacturing SIG can focus on any issue raised by BGA members related to manufacturing. Currently the group are focussing on issues around 5-Axis CNC machining of gears.
The group are led by Dontyne Gears Ltd and AMRC at Sheffield University.
A survey of BGA members and AMRC partners, performed by AMRC identified some sensible initial research and verification tasks.
AMRC are currently finishing a proposal for an initial project funded by HV Catapult which will start this research.
