Mechanical transmissions are everywhere: you can find them in your bicycle, car, motorcycle, but also in airplanes, helicopters, wind turbines and many other devices.
Specifically, gears are the most common elements in a mechanical transmission.
For this reason, gear is a thriving industry, and a lot of material can be found for gear design. However, the same cannot be said when it comes to manufacturing knowledge.
This course aims to provide the key concepts on gear manufacturing with an extremely concrete approach.
The course is aimed at the following professional figures:
- novice gear manufacturing engineers
- gear designers who require a complete overview on the subject
- professionals who work in this business and who wish to know its fundamental production aspects
The course is divided into 2 parts:
- PART 1: theoretical concepts on gears, in which basic information is provided regarding the classification, nomenclature and standards in use in the gear field
- PART 2: foundations of manufacturing, in which the student is introduced to the production sequence, focusing on the key processes of the toothing.
Although a minimum of technical skills certainly represent a benefit, however this course does not require any pre-requisites: the cut that has been given is deliberately self-explanatory.
Below and in the navigation menu on the left are the lessons, topics and quizzes of the course which can be accessed at any time.
At the end of the lessons, a final summary will help focus the key concepts of the course in preparation for the final test.
After passing the test, a certificate of achievement will be issued.
Let’s not waste any more time, and let’s start immediately with the first lesson!
