International Conference on Gear Production

The International Conference on Gear Production accompanies the International Conference on Gears 2019 and is one of the most important biannual meetings for technical experts and decision makers in the gear manufacturing industry. Current challenges and solutions will be presented and discussed, with an emphasis on discovering new potential in productivity and the flexibility of gear manufacturing processes. Do not miss this event outlining new trends for the gear producing industry of tomorrow.

Discussing innovative technologies, changes and new potentials in productivity

Requirements in gear manufacturing are increasing dramatically. This presents a dilemma for today’s technical solutions between productivity (scale) and flexibility (scope). On the one hand lead, times need to be shortened in order to increase productivity. On the other hand, batch sizes are getting smaller and individual geometric features such as e.g. topological modifications push the need for intelligent support by manufacturing simulation and closed-loop approaches. Furthermore, as new technologies evolve, so do the challenges to the conventional manufacturing chain for gears.

The discussion in 2019 will focus on the following topics:

  • Increasing productivity with new concepts for machine and manufacturing processes
  • Main time or throughput time – balancing of productivity and flexibility
  • Alternative, resource-efficient gear manufacturing chains (e.g. additive manufacturing, powder metallurgy, molding)
  • Gear Manufacturing in the context of digitalization and industry 4.0
  • New manufacturing methods for optimized gear and gearbox performance
  • New materials and heat treatment processes
  • Simulation of manufacturing processes
  • Innovative methods and measurement principles for the quality inspection of gears

+ One day free: Participation in the International Conference on Gear Production includes attendance at the Conference on Plastic Gears as well as the 3-day International Conference on Gears (September 18th to 20th, 2019).

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Brecher and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Bergs MBA, WZL, RWTH Aachen as well as Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karsten Stahl, FZG, Technische Universität München (TUM) at Garching preside over of the International Conference on Gear Production. They will take you through the conference program and moderate the sessions in 2019.


We are currently preparing the final program for you. You will soon be able to download it here.

Co-located events – more networking opportunities, more exhibitors, more attendees

Your registration includes 3 days of presentations and exclusive networking! Since The International Conference on Gear Production 2019 and the International Conference on High-Performance Plastic Gears 2019 are running at the same time, as part of the International Conferences on Gears 2019. This makes it a unique opportunity to meet over 600 experts in the international gear transmission industry face-to-face. Registration for the International Conference on Gear Production 2019 includes attendance at the Conference on Plastic Gears  free of charge as well as the 3-day International Conference on Gears

With a mix of panel discussions and technical sessions this international event ensures an exchange of knowledge in all aspects of gear and transmission technology for all gear buyers, suppliers of technology and solutions, end users, manufacturers, and engineers from a large number of industries.

The latest products and technologies and new solutions will be shown at the exhibitor area. Do you want to become an exhibitor and showcase your company in this specialized sector? If you are interested in presenting your products and services, send an email to Christoph Brockerhoff 

Network with your peers and catch up on trends at two social evening events

The International VDI Conference on Gear Production brings together participants from all around the world, discussing solutions, new concepts and technical innovation in gear manufacturing.

Your will have the opportunity to participate in two evening events during the conference.

This is the ideal occasion to make international contacts and to expand your network above and beyond your field in a relaxed atmosphere. Have one-on-one time with your peers and share ideas. Take the time to meet new potential partners and make the first steps towards creating long-term relationships.

The social events are included in your conference package. 

Experience live gear technology in the on-site lab tours

Seize the opportunity and visit the nearby test and laboratory facilities at the Gear Research Centre (FZG). Several guided tours with different core topics offer chances to gain deeper insight into a variety of innovative gear test rigs and laboratory equipment. Further information and registration for the tours will be available at the FZG information desk during the conference. 

Register online today! And get the latest news in gear manufacturing around the world.
