Experienced gear manufacturers and those thinking about getting into it will have the opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field and to review the latest machine tool technologies in October when the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) holds its Fall Technical Meeting conjointly with Gear Expo 2015. As any tradeshow veteran knows, advance planning allows you to maximize the experience and create a balanced schedule, sitting in on educational presentations and then walking the show floor to meet with top OEMs from around the world.

A look at the technical meeting’s lineup reveals 27 papers on topics including materials and heat treatment, gear manufacturing and application, lubrication, and ways to minimize noise and vibration. Presenters represent companies such as Gleason Cutting Tools, Drive Systems Technology and Lufkin PTM. In addition, ASM International will host Heat Treat 2015 alongside Gear Expo at Detroit’s Cobo Center.

Also be sure to review Gear Production, a supplement to Modern Machine Shop, to learn about the latest processes and trends in the gear manufacturing industry.
