Big Sky Resort, Summit Lodge, Big Sky, Montana. In AGMA’s Gear Failure Analysis Seminar, attendees will examine the various types of gear failure, such as macropitting, micropitting, scuffing, tooth wear and breakage. Possible causes of these failures will be presented, along with some suggested ways to avoid them. Robert Errichello will use a variety of tools and methods – lectures, slide presentations, hands-on workshops with failed gears and Q&A sessions – to give you a comprehensive understanding of the reasons for gear failure. Participants are encouraged to bring their own failed gears or photographs and discuss them during the Q&A sessions. The seminar brings together a vast amount of knowledge not available elsewhere. It will help you solve everyday problems whether you are a gear engineer, user, researcher, maintenance technician, lubricant expert, or manager. The course manual can be used as a permanent reference and guide for failure analysis.
