Gear Training


A complete Gear Training Programme on Master level (english spoken)

Although the power transmission engineering industry is an important industry branch, universities fail to
develop appropriate courses. In Europe, a mechanical engineer gets on average 5 hours of gear training.
This is far too less to be effective in industry. Moreover, gear trainers are becoming rare due to retirement
and non replacement. Therefore, EUROTRANS identified the remaining top gear trainers and developed an
extensive modular Gear Training covering all aspects from geometry and design over production to quality
control and failure analysis. Addressing a European audience, this residential training is organised in
several locations in close connection with famous laboratory.

 The first training sessions took place in January 2010. EUROTRANS was pleased to welcome 15 participants for the 1st week of the EUROTRANS Gear Training on "Geometry and Design" at CETIM (Senlis, France). Since that time the content of the courses were evaluated as 'satisfying' or even 'very satisfying'.
