How to Design Longer-lasting, Better-performing Gear Drives

Recorded:January 31, 201830 min

Know what you’re designing for. Extend the life of your gearing system. All gearing systems undergo failure over time; however, there are preliminary and preventative best practices to prolong performance, minimize repair costs and boost productivity. 

This presentation covers the fundamentals of gear design for efficient, long-lasting gearing systems. It will explain how torque, size limitations, shaft orientations and backlash calculations affect wear and how you can prevent this early on.

Attendees will learn gear design best practices and receive practical guidance on gear, shaft and bearing ratings to verify they have an ideal configuration for their intended application. An explanation of the AGMA Gear Quality Scale and some examples of applications associated with the level of quality required for specific industry sectors will also be discussed.
