An introduction to Earthing; lightning protection and EMC requirements for a building
10th Sep 2019 09:00 | RINA Consulting Limited
The subjects of earthing; lightning protection and EMC are critical aspects of building design although they are often misunderstood. This one day course demystifies the three areas covering the main technical requirements and design aspects and how these can be managed to achieve and coordinated design.
Gear Foundation Day
11th Sep 2019 09:30 | The British Gear Association (BGA)
The course will include: An Introduction to Gears Part 1: Gear Fundamentals; Law of Gearing; The Involute Form; Power Transmission; Motion Control; Gear Types – Features and Benefits. An Introduction to Gears Part 2: Noise & Load Modes of Failure (Bending; Pitting; Micro-Pitting; Scuffing; Wear) Gear Rating methods; Application Factors; Gear Lubrication; Noise & Vibration basics; Transmission Error; An Introduction to Gears Part 3: Gear Manufacture Gear Material Specification; Gear Manufacturing Methods (Forming; Moulding; Machining; Hobbing; Shaping; Shaving; Honing Grinding and Finishing); Heat Treatment and Gear Measurement.
Gear Noise & Transmission Error Management
18th Sep 2019 09:30 | The British Gear Association (BGA)
Introduction: Sources of Gear Noise; Definition of Transmission Error; Gear Design for Low Noise; TE spur gears; TE helical gears; The relation of TE to contact ratios and the concept of integer contact ratio; Effect of misalignment on tooth contact; Approaches to designing gears for low TE; TE in planetary gears; Noise Signals; Tooth passing frequencies; Gear pairs; Planetary gears; Run out ; generation of side bands; Ghost frequencies and their origin; Noise measurement; Practical aspects of noise measurement are considered in order to correctly diagnose the cause/source of the noise it’s necessary to correctly identify the frequency.
Gear Cutting & Measurement
24th Sep 2019 09:30 | The British Gear Association (BGA)
The Seminar will cover Basic involute gear theory; terms and definitions for spur and helical gears including: Gear terms and definitions; Introduction to the involute form and its construction/tables; Calculations on the above; Practical work on the measurement of gears including calculations on the following: Chordal tooth settings for gear tooth Vernier; Constant chord settings to gear tooth Vernier; Base tangent micrometer settings; Distance over rollers measurement; Basic principles of gear hobbing and shaping. Selection of index and feed change gears. Practical work – setting up and producing spur & helical gears by hobbing and shaping using a Maxicut 2A shaping machine and Sykes H150 hobbing machine.
