Introduction to Gear Design & Geometry

Seminar The British Gear Association (BGA)

About the CPD course

Gear geometry is thought to be complex and considered a 'black art'. This seminar will dispel this myth and provide a basic knowledge of spur and helical gear geometry and how gears work. At the end of the seminar you will understand how gears work; be competent with basic calculations relating to gear geometry; understand the basic terms and symbols and have a greater understanding of what is happening when you use gear software packages. Design; manufacture and inspection processes make more sense when you understand gear geometry.
