2011 Fall Technical Meeting

October 30 - November 1, 2011

Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, Cincinnati, OH

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for this meeting is ONLY through the Gear Expo site. A printable registration form is available to the right, or register through the Gear Expo site.

The AGMA 2011 Fall Technical Meeting will be held October 30 – November 1, 2011 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The FTM presents a unique opportunity this year as it is held in conjunction both with Gear Expo (Nov. 1-3, 2011) and ASM’s Heat Treating Society Conference and Exposition (Oct 31 – Nov. 2). Attendees and presenters from all over the world are anticipated in Cincinnati for these events.

The AGMA Fall Technical Meeting provides an outstanding opportunity to share ideas with others on the design, analysis, manufacturing, and application of gears, gear drives, and related products, as well as associated processes and prodedures. Authors have the opportunity to present the results of their work to an audience of knowledgable professionals from the United States and abroad, and to participate in discussions with that audience.

Each year AGMA has received an increased number of submissions for this event. This year the number of quality submissions was high enough to warrant expansion of the program. So for the 2011 event there will be five sessions rather than the usual four.

Session I Manufacturing and Inspection
Session II Design Considerations
Session III Micropitting
Session IV Drive Design and Application
Session V Heat Treatment

You have the opportunity to come for the entire event or to just attend individual sessions. All FTM attendees will receive a free pass to Gear Expo 2011.

Registration for this event is through the Gear Expo Website
