  • Pay one conference and visit three
  • Exchange with experts who already made experiences with the use of plastic gears
High Performance Plastic Gears | VDI Conference

During our 2nd international conference on high performance plastic gears we talk about reasons why plastic gears are continuing to displace metal gears in a widening area of application. Experts and professionals provide answers regarding the current state of industry, the production, application and the use of high performance plastic gears and give an outlook on what may lie ahead. In addition, two exclusive evening events invite to network and exchange knowledge.

Plastic instead of steel – What are the difficulties and opportunities?

The design flexibility, reduced noise, ability to operate without lubrication and corrosion-resistance are only some of the economic advantages of plastic gears. Nevertheless it is important to be familiar with the limitations of plastic gears relative to metal gears. Design and User Experience are key issues in the Industry, which faces many challenges, producing plastic gears with features required customer, ensuring that the performance stays as good as using metal gears. Listen during our international conference to topics such as:

  • Endurance, Strength and Calculation
  • Limit and Chances of Shape and Form
  • Tribology and Efficiency
  • Typical and Future Materials
  • NVH and Dynamics
