Any quality engineer, manufacturing engineer, and customer liaison (sales or engineering) who would benefit from knowing and understanding the kinds of analysis involved in assuring the quality of their product.
PURPOSE AND BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Gear quality is of utmost importance to a manufacturer. Presented in this webinar are several commonly used gear inspection methods to ensure the quality of a gear from the raw material through to the final manufactured form. Discussed are methods of assuring the quality of: raw material (cast or billet), heat treatment (whether forged, quench and tempered, carburized induction hardened or nitrided) and final net shape formation (welding, machining and fine finishing). Students will be able to assess the accuracy of the current methods used or possibly find newer, less expensive methods for assessing the quality of their gears.
Following this webinar, attendees will be able to:
