March 10, 2017
Gears and gear drives are one of the key components of all kinds of vehicles, machine tools, aircrafts, household appliances as well as a broad variety of industrial equipments. Today the designers are facing challenges of demands about increasing lifetime, power transmission and noise emission, whereas the size and weight of gear drives is constantly reduced. The accuracy of gears is crucial for achieving the above functional demands. Proper understanding of gear metrology and the measurement of gears is important for ensuing required accuracy and quality, Lower overall cost of manufacture by controlling rejects and scrap, control machines and machining practices and determine hear treat distortions to make necessary corrections. Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a one day programme on Gear Metrology and Measurement Methods on 27 April 2017 at Bangalore.
This programme will be conducted by Ved Parkash, an industry expert with over 37 years of domain expertise in automotive industries. He is former head - quality and TQM at Ashok leyland and head - quality at Hero Honda Motors. He has a rich experience in gear manufacturing as well as gear metrology. He was head of the gear plant at Eicher and associate vice president at Hi Tech Gears. He has set up a state-of-the-art plant for gear manufacturing at Hi Tech Gears, developed new products for reputed customers like Cummins, GM, Volvo, JCB, Getrag Ford, etc. Parkash has done pioneering work at Hero Honda to reduce gear noise, establish distortion patterns during heat treatment. He is a mechanical engineer and has been associated with well-known organizations in the country manufacturing two-wheelers and four-wheelers.
