Dontyne to Exhibit at International Conference On Gears

We are looking forward to meeting many existing and future customers at the VDI International Conference on Gears to be held at the Technical University of Munich (Garching) from 4-6th October. We will be on exhibiting for the duration of the conference. We are excited to be a part of the proceedings at such an illustrious event and we anticipate many new opportunities to arise from establishing international contacts. For that reason we have decided to present a paper as part of the proceedings which has been scheduled for Tuesday 5th October, 2010 at 10:00 – 10:30am in Room 1450.

Title: The fundamental mechanism behind the application of tip relief to spur gears

The paper is an summary of the development of the theory of tip modification which is used to optimise gear performance for a specific set of operating conditions. It will explain some techniques used to improve performance characteristics which are not covered in the international standards. We hope it will also be of interest to those not necessarily in the gearing industry but who are required to specify gears in their design projects as it will illustrate how a perfectly made gear will not necessarily perform well in operation, and how tip modification can be used to optimise performance. If you can’t attend the lecture itself, we hope to see you during the week at our stand!
