Discover innovative gear technology, network around the world and build partnerships!

Following on from the success of the past conference the “International Conference on Gears” will surely be a again a unique meeting point for equipment manufacturers, producers and researchers of gear and transmission systems and present your new solutions, latest research results and technical ideas. You will find answers to questions such as Where are the potentials for innovative tooth geometry and modifications? How can you increase the load carrying-capacity? or What are the best techniques for continuous diagnosis and monitoring? And many more.

The discussion will focus e.g. on topics:

  • Optimization of gear design and geometry
  • System-modelling, -simulation and –calculation of gears
  • New calculation methods for load carrying capacity, strength and more efficiency
  • NVH behavior and noise reduction of transmission systems
  • Condition monitoring and damage detection
  • EHL contact
  • Quality assurance and measurement
