Discussing innovative technologies, changes and new potentials in productivity

 Questions such as “Why are conventional thinking and manufacturing paradigms preventing the widespread adoption of cost-effective powder-metal energy transfer solutions that minimize NVH and maximize efficiency and power density?” or “Tradition vs. progress – how can we reconcile the potentials of material, lube oil, calculation and machining with increasing emphasis on reliability, efficiency, lightweighting and cost?” will be discussed in the grand opening and panel discussion.  

The following sessions will include the following topic areas:

  • Solutions for digitized process chains
  • Latest trends in cylindrical and bevel gear manufacturing
  • Developments in PM gear technology
  • Optimization of functional surfaces in gear manufacturing
  • Increased productivity of gear manufacturing processes 

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Brecher and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr.-Ing. E.h. Dr. h.c. Dr. h.c. Fritz Klocke, WZL, RWTH Aachen as well as Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karsten Stahl, FZG, Technische Universität München (TUM) from Garching are the conference presidents of the International Conference on Gear Production. They will take you through the conference program and moderate the sessions.

Meet leaders from industry and academia and discuss with them their latest research results.
