The 8th International Conference on Gears 2019 will be held in Garching, Germany, at the Technical University of Munich’s Gear Research Centre (FZG) from September 18th to 20th, 2019. The conference brings together over 600 leading experts from the international gear and transmission industry and is supported by national and international associations. Participating the conference gives you the opportunity to take part in this leading international forum and learn about the latest developments and research results in the powertrain industry and academia.

Discover innovative gear technology, network around the world and build partnerships!

Following on from the success of the past conference the “International Conference on Gears 2019” will surely be a again a unique meeting point for equipment manufacturers, producers and researchers of gear and transmission systems and present your new solutions, latest research results and technical ideas. You will find answers to questions such as Where are the potentials for innovative tooth geometry and modifications?, How can you increase the load carrying-capacity? or What are the best techniques for continuous diagnosis and monitoring? And many more. 

The discussion in 2019 will focus on the following topics:

  • Optimization of gear design and geometry
  • System-modelling, -simulation and –calculation of gears
  • New calculation methods for load carrying capacity, strength and more efficiency
  • NVH behavior and noise reduction of transmission systems
  • Condition monitoring and damage detection
  • Lubrication and TEHL

Learn from best practices and attend specialist lectures, for example, from the following companies:

AKGears ● cmc Instruments ● Dana Incorporated ● DriveConcepts ● Flender ● Gamesa Energy Transmissions ● Georgii Kobold ● Getriebebau NORD ● hofer powertrain ● Idemitsu Kosan ● Involute Simulation Softwares ● JATCO● KISSsoft ● Magnet Technologies ● MAHLE ZG Transmissions ● MESYS ● Montres Breguet ● Nissan Motor ● Ovako ● Renk ● Schaeffler Technologies ● Sensitec ● SEW-Eurodrive ● Siemens Industry Software ● Tribo Technologies ● VibraTec ● Voith ● ZF Friedrichshafen ● ZG Hypoid

Take a look at the detailed programme of the “International Conference on Gears 2019” and look forward to over 130 interesting technical lectures by first class speakers.

Accompanying conferences focus on high-performance plastic gears and gear production

In addition to the International Conference on Gears 2019, further accompanying conferences offer detailed insight into all aspects of

>> Gear Production 2019

>> High Performance Plastic Gears 2019

Entrance to the accompanying conferences is free for registered participants of the International Conference on Gears 2019.

Two social events offer excellent networking opportunities

The conference offers many opportunities to meet up with colleagues - old and new - during the breaks. A social evening in the main hall of the university will be held on the second conference day. Furthermore, we warmly invite you to a special, surprise external evening event. Attendance at the social events is included in the conference fee.

Sponsorship & exhibition opportunities

The International Conference on Gears 2019 – the world’s leading congress in the field of gears and transmissions – offers you the chance to reach out to key players in the industry.  Speak directly to your targeted audience and interact with high-profile delegates through sponsorship and exhibition opportunities. If you are interested in presenting your products and services please contact us.

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 conferene.
