Gear Manufacturing & Inspection Seminar
(November 10-12, 2009) Sheraton Sand Key Resort, Clearwater, FL, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. The focus of this seminar is methods, practices, application and interpretation for the design enginee. Presented by AGMA and Raymond Drago, P.E., Drive Systems Technology, Inc., the course provides students with a broad understanding of the methods used to manufacture and inspect gears while learning how the resultant information can be applied and interpreted in the design process. This seminar aims to narrow and possibly close the information gap by providing gear design engineers with a good foundation in both manufacturing and inspections processes and procedures.
A description of each basic manufacturing and inspection method is provided. Both the methodology and underlying theory are explained. The features associated with each manufacturing method are discussed with regard to their impact upon and their ability to refine, guide and optimize the design process.
The seminar also covers the methods of specifying the data required to control both the manufacturing and inspection processes on an engineering drawing and in a specification. This includes both the data to be defined and the presentation of the data on the engineering drawing.
The basics of a variety of measurement tests, including their underlying theory, application techniques and interpretation of the resultant data will be presented.
This seminar is not a tutorial in the mechanics of machine operation. Instead, the content addresses the relation between the manufacturing/inspection sequence and the detailed gear design process.
