Last Chance to Register: Virtual Gear Measurement

Date: 10th, 11th, 17th,18th & 24th October 2023

Time: 9:30 - 12:30 each day

Platform: TEAMS

Tutor: Rob Frazer

Fee: BGA Member Free / Non Member £225*


Please note this training is over 5 sessions – you will need to attend all sessions to complete the course.





This course is applicable to gear designers, manufacturing staff, machine operators, inspectors and those who are new to the gear industry and want to understand why you need to invest in precise gear measuring equipment.


We will dispel the myth that measuring machines only produce scrap.


The sessions will include a short introduction on Teams before you access some video presentations individually and try some easy quizzes to test your knowledge. We then get back together on Teams later in the morning to run through the quiz answers and discuss any questions you have and summarise what we have covered. PDFs of the PowerPoint presentations and supporting training information will be sent prior to the event. Also, you will have access to the video sessions for 7 days to run over things again if needed.
