Methods, Practices, Application & Interpretation for the Design Engineer
Raymond Drago, Chief Engineer – Gear Technologist, Drive Systems Technology, Inc.
In this seminar, you can gain a broad understanding of the methods used to manufacture and inspect gears – and much more. You will take it one step further, learning how the resultant information can be applied and interpreted in the design process.
First, learn about methods behind a variety of gears, including external and internal spur, single and double helical gears, as well as bevel and worm gears.
A description of each basic manufacturing and inspection method is provided. Both the methodology and underlying theory are explained.
The “features” associated with each manufacturing method are discussed with regard to their impact upon and their ability to refine, guide and optimize the design process.
Similarly, you will walk through interpretations of the results of all inspections. Take two views of the same results: both meeting a “specification” and determining acceptability for a specific application. Interpret the inspection data for purposes other than simply determining accept/reject status.
The seminar also covers the methods of specifying the data required to control both the manufacturing and inspection processes on an engineering drawing and in a specification. This includes both the data to be defined and the presentation of the data on the engineering drawing.
It is critical that the design engineer understand the manufacturing and inspection processes that will be employed so that the intent of the design can be successfully translated into practice.
Most gear inspection centers on gear tooth geometry, however, various nondestructive and destructive tests (such as ultrasonic, magnetic particle, acid etch, etc.) are also required to ensure the quality of the basic gear material and the results of various heat treatment procedures. In this seminar, we will cover the basics of a variety of these tests, including their underlying theory, application techniques and, most importantly, interpretation of the resultant data.
This seminar aims to narrow and possibly close the information gap by providing gear design engineers with a good foundation in both manufacturing and inspections processes and procedures.
Please note: This seminar is not a tutorial in the mechanics of machine operation; rather, the content addresses the relation between the manufacturing/inspection sequence and the detailed gear design process.
