The FTM is the best opportunity to learn about the latest research in the gear industry.

Each year, the Fall Technical Meeting (FTM) provides an outstanding opportunity to share ideas with others in the gear industry on design, analysis, manufacturing and application of gears, gear drives and related products, as well as associated processes and procedures.

Each speakers will present the content of his or her technical paper. All papers undergo a double-blind peer review of three industry topic experts. All papers presented at FTM will be indexed in Scopus, and the international database of peer-reviewed literature.

Hear about the results of work directly from the researchers and participate in discussions of this work and surround yourself with an audience of knowledgeable gear industry professionals from the United States and abroad.

Sessions include the following topic areas:

  • Application and Design & Rating
  • Efficinecy, Lubrications, Noise, and Vibration
  • Gear Wear & Failure
  • Manufacturing, Inspection, and Quality Control
  • Materials & Heat Treatment

Registration opens on April 1, 2017 and will take place through the Gear Expo website.


The AGMA Technical Division Executive Committee (TDEC) is currently reviewing the submitted papers. We will provide a list of accepted papers when it is available. Check back.


All technical papers presented at AGMA's Fall Technical Meeting undergo a thorough review process to ensure their quality and relevance to the AGMA audience. This process is coordinated by AGMA staff and the members of the Technical Division Executive Committee (TDEC), who solicit the assistance of three people to review every paper.
