2024 Fall Technical Meeting (FTM)

October 7 – 9, 2024

Hyatt Rosemont, Rosemont, IL

The 2024 Fall Technical Meeting (FTM) will be held on October 7-9, 2024, at the Hyatt Rosemont in Rosemont, IL.

Technology is fundamentally changing the way manufacturing is done. The gear industry is faced with emerging trends and innovation that is challenging engineers to stay in course with cutting-edge technology to keep design, quality, materials and analysis efficient. It is imperative that researchers and gear engineers communicate ideas with fellow experts in the field. AGMA’s annual Fall Technical Meeting (FTM) is the perfect forum in which to share research and to disperse knowledge for the benefit of the industry at a global level.

Each year, authors selected by AGMA write technical papers on topics relevant to the gear industry. These may include subject matter related to: design and analysis; manufacturing and quality; materials, metallurgy, and heat treatment; operation, maintenance, and efficiency; and gear failure. The papers then go through a double-blind peer review process in order to ensure the efficacy of the research. The authors then present the results of their work at the FTM to an audience of knowledgeable international engineering professionals. During a Q&A period at the end of each session, authors and attendees are able to exchange their ideas.

Early Bird lasts until August 16.
Advance is available after Early Bird until September 30.

Academic discounts available upon request.
