2016 Gear Materials: Selection, Metallurgy, Heat Treatment and Quality Control
(February 24-26, 2016)
Clearwater Beach, Florida. Instructors Raymond Drago and Roy Cunningham will describe the advantages and disadvantages of gear materials, explain heat treatment processes, define best practices and more. The design of an optimum gear set requires the coordinated effort of the gear design engineer, the gear metallurgist, and the bearing system engineer. The instructors of this course are a gear design engineer and a metallurgist who have worked collaboratively on projects for more than 40 years. Learn the roles of each of these professionals and how collaborative efforts can provide better outcomes. Additional information on gear-related problems, failures, and improved processing procedures will be reviewed. Gear design engineers, management, metallurgists and materials engineers; laboratory technicians; quality assurance technicians; furnace design engineers; and equipment suppliers would benefit from this course.
