AGMA’s 2018 Fall Technical Meeting

September 24–26, 2018

(note the new Monday to Wednesday schedule)

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 speaker 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, 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
  •  Efficiency, Lubrication, Noise, and Vibration
  •  Gear Wear & Failure
  •  Manufacturing, Inspection, and Quality Control
  •  Materials & Heat Treatment


Registration opens in April of 2018 and will take place through the AGMA website.


We need your help!

All of the technical papers you have seen presented at FTM have gone through a thorough review process to ensure their quality and relevance to the AGMA audience. This process is coordinated by the members of the Technical Division Executive Committee, who solicit the assistance of three people, knowledgeable in the technical area of the paper, to critique and provide suggestions to the author for consideration in the final published draft.
