Summary

Learn how mechanical power transmission and gears are being used to exploit exciting new technologies and meet the challenges todays’ engineers face.

Machines exploit gears and gearboxes to both control motion and allow the prime mover and driven machine to run at their ideal conditions.

This webinar will outline how mechanical power transmission has been used throughout history to create and develop the machines that have now become essential to our civilization and way of life.  

It will also explain the critical role gears play and how, for more than 2000 years, gear engineers have had to embrace and understand all aspects of mechanical engineering, providing exciting opportunities as new technologies continue to emerge.

Whilst the inescapable truth is that gears are used, not because we want them, but because we need them, hidden within is the secret joy associated with gears and this will be revealed during the exciting webinar.
