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 May of 2018 and will take place through the AGMA website.
