International Conference on Gear Production

As an accompanying event to the International Conference on Gears 2023, the 5th International Conference on Gear Production is one of the most important biannual meeting points for the gear manufacturing industry both for technical experts and for decision-makers. Current challenges and solutions are presented and discussed, strongly emphasizing new potentials in productivity and/or the flexibility of gear manufacturing processes. High-level expertise will be ensured by our conference presidents: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Brecher and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Bergs MBA, WZL, RWTH Aachen as well as Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karsten Stahl, FZG, Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Garching. They will take you through the conference program and moderate the sessions in 2023. Do not miss an event outlining new trends for the gear producing industry of tomorrow. If you would like to shape the conference, hand in your presentation proposal due to the main event until November 25th, 2022.

Hand in your abstract now and embrace the future by submitting a lecture

The requirements in gear manufacturing are increasing dramatically which delivers a dilemma between productivity (scale) and flexibility (scope) of today’s technical solutions. On the one hand lead times need to be shortened in order to increase productivity. On the other hand, batch sizes are getting smaller and individual geometric features such as e.g. topological modifications push the need for intelligent support by manufacturing simulation and closed-loop approaches. The digitalization of the gear manufacturing processes promises high potential but also raises some challenges. In addition, new technologies evolve, that challenge the conventional manufacturing chain for gears.

The discussion in 2023 will focus on following topics, to which you are called handing in submissions:

  • Productivity increase by new concepts for machine and manufacturing processes
  • Main time or throughput time – balancing of productivity and flexibility
  • Alternative, resource-efficient gear manufacturing chains (e.g. additive manufacturing, powder metallurgy, molding)
  • Gear Manufacturing in context of digitalization and industry 4.0
  • New manufacturing methods for optimized gear and gearbox performance
  • New materials and heat treatment processes
  • Simulation of manufacturing processes
  • Innovative Methods and Measurement Principles for Quality Inspection of Gears

Hand in your abstract under the section three “Gear Production” until November 25th or send an email to

Important dates for authors

We would like to remind all authors of the important dates below.

  • Deadline for submission of abstracts:                                November 25th, 2022
  • Notification of acceptance:                                                 End of February 2023
  • Final program available in:                                                 May 2023
  • Deadline for submission of manuscripts (VDI-Bericht):     June 2nd, 2023
  • Deadline for submission of manuscripts
    for peer review and publication in the
    journalForschung im Ingenieurwesen:                              March 24th, 2023 (

Based on the abstract, the program committee will decide on acceptance and on the order of presentation in the conference program. All accepted authors must submit a full paper to be published in the conference proceedings (VDI-Bericht as an eBook) which have an official ISBN number.

If accepted authors wish their full paper to be peer reviewed, this must be indicated in the abstract. The paper will be reviewed and – if accepted – published in the magazine “Forschung im Ingenieurwesen”. This journal is currently listed in Scopus and Web of Science, with a recognized impact factor of 0.931 (2021). Participation in the peer review mechanism is voluntary.

Co-located events – more networking opportunities, more exhibitors, more attendees

Your registration includes 3 days of presentations and exclusive networking! Since the International Conference on Gear Production 2023 and the International Conference on High-Performance Plastic Gears 2023 are running parallel under the roof the International Conferences on Gears 2023, this is a unique opportunity to meet over 500 experts in the international gear transmission industry face-to-face. Registration for the International Conference on Gear Production 2023 includes attending the Conference on Plastic Gearsfree of charge as well as the 3-day International Conference on Gears

With a mix of panel discussion, technical sessions this international event ensures an exchange of knowledge in all aspects of gear and transmission technology for all gear buyers, suppliers of technology and solutions, end users, manufacturers, and engineers from a large number of industries.

The latest products and technologies as well as new solutions are shown in the exhibition area. Do you want to become an exhibitor and showcase your company in this specialized sector? If you are interested in presenting your products and services, send an email to Vanessa Ulbrich

Network with your peers and catch up on trends at two social evening events

The International VDI on Gear Production brings together participants from all around the world, discussing solutions, new concept and technical innovation in gear manufacturing.

Your will have the opportunity to join two evening events during the conference.

This is the ideal occasion in which to make international contacts and to expand your network above and beyond your field in a relaxed atmosphere. Have one-on-one time with your peers and share ideas. Take the time for meeting new potential partners and making first steps to creating long-term relationships.

The social events are included in your conference package.  

Experience live gear technology in the on-site lab tours

Seize the opportunity and visit the nearby test and laboratory facilities of the Gear Research Centre (FZG). Several guided tours with different core topics offer the chance of getting a deeper insight into a variety of innovative gear test rigs and laboratory equipment. Further information and registration for the tours will be available at the FZG information desk during the conference.
