Special Training: Contact Pattern Analysis for Cylindrical Gears, Bevel Gears and Planetary Systems with optional Workshop

This special training will cover the theoretical foundations of contact analysis which are required for sizing and optimizing gear units with regards to noise, transmission error, traverse contact ratio and tooth trace modifications. With the objective to deepen the content of the 2-day training, an additional workshop day will be offered for exercises.

The training course is design for engineers who are already familiar with cylindrical gears and planetary gear units and have already completed an advanced training about gear calculation because a good knowledge of geometry and strength calculation is essential for fully understanding the contents of this course specialized on contact pattern optimization.

You will need a notebook to actively participate in the training course.
If you do not have a notebook, we are happy to provide one, tick the relevant part of the application form below.

June 13 2018 | Week 24
09:00 - 17:00 | Wednesday
Duration: 2 Days
Topic: The first part of the training uses the calculation of the face load factor as an introduction to the more detailed theory of contact pattern calculation. The course explains essential issues such as modeling and stiffness and goes into detail about how to check and interpret the results. The second part covers special contact analysis topics such as consideration of shaft deformation and planetary gear units. Participants will reinforce what they have learned by using the powerful sizing and optimization functions.

Workshop on Contact Pattern Analysis

Language: English
Costs: 500 Euro


June 14 2018 | Week 24
09:00 - 17:00 | Thursday
Duration: 1 Day
Topic: This workshop offers the possibility to deepen and practice the optimization strategies learned in the Contact pattern training. The trainer will support and advice the participants individually. This workshop is restricted to a maximum of 10 participants.
