This course is aimed at practicing mechanical engineers who understand or practice gear design, development and application but their experience base is in the more traditional parallel axis arena. The focus of this course is to introduce and emphasize the differences between parallel axis and worm and crossed axis helical gears. The course covers the basics of worm and crossed axis helical gears, their fundamental design principles, application guidelines and recommendations, and lubrication requirements. Accuracy, quality and common failure modes are also addressed.
By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate:
Who Should Attend
The intended audience for this course is powertrain engineers, component suppliers, vehicle platform powertrain development specialists, engineers involved in the application or design of worm and wheel gearing, or mechanical engineers or engineering managers with gearing experience responsibilities covering worm / wheel or crossed axis helical gear projects / products.
Because this course is targeted at several design and engineering disciplines, learners should have a B.S. in engineering or related field and preferably a minimum of two years design experience in the automotive powertrain field.
