Although gears have been indispensable components in various sectors such as mechanical engineering, automotive engineering and industrial gear manufacturing for many decades, increasing requirements and current market developments are constantly presenting the transmission technology industry with new challenges. In modern gear transmissions, competition, besides the price, is determined by load-carrying capacity, operational reliability and noise excitation behavior. In the automotive industry in particular, reliable transmissions with high power density, low weight and minimal noise emissions are required. The current trend towards e-mobility, as well as general ecological and economical challenges to improve resource efficiency, lead to increased demands on the entire process chain in gear production.
At this year’s Aachen Conference on Gear Production (ACGP), which is organized hand in hand by the WZL of RWTH Aachen University and the Research Association for Drive Technology (FVA), the event will cover topics ranging from gear design to soft and hard machining, process and quality control as well as the operation of gears.
The spectrum of topics ranges from process and tool design in line with requirements to the manufacturing of individual gear geometries and measures for continuous quality assurance. In addition, aspects of digitalization and the improvement of sustainability in gear production and application will be presented.

Aachen Conference on Gear Production. 9th – 10th November 2022, Aachen
This year’s Aachen Conference on Gear Production will focus on the whole gear manufacturing chain. The objective of the Aachen Forum on Gear Production is an exchange of knowledge and experience between engineers working in the design, development, production, assembly, and application of gear drives. The individual technical presentations will feature both manufacturers of machines and tools as well as end users. In addition, there will be interesting presentations by research experts.
