Day 1. The seminar will introduce delegates to gear geometry inspection. Providing manufacturers with the knowledge to select appropriate measurement methods and equipment; appreciate the importance of applying good measurement practice and how to correctly interpret measurement results. Day 2. Using gear measuring instruments in a pass/fail process fails to maximise the investment made in measuring equipment and the potential to improve the manufacturing process. Strategies for interpreting measurement results and identifying the cause of the measured errors will be presented. Calibration procedures demonstrated to quantify measurement capability and identify common causes of measurement errors.
