Machine manufacturer Klingelnberg offers customers genuine added value with the “GEAR Seminar” event series it established in 2016. In these seminars – typically two-day events held in various locations – Klingelnberg experts keep their customers abreast of current technologies, trends and innovations from the Bevel Gear Technology, Cylindrical Gear Technology and Gear Measuring Technology business units. The event is followed by an evening meal, which always provides opportunities for discussions and exchanges in a relaxed atmosphere.
“Having hosted the Gear Seminars with great success in China, Taiwan, Italy and the USA in 2018, we have carried the popular seminar series over to Japan and Sweden this year,” explains Dr. Hartmuth Müller, Head of Technology and Innovation at Klingelnberg, as well as initiator and patron of the event series. “Our customers’ consistently positive response confirms to us that we have created an ideal platform with this forum for targeted discussions of practical issues that arise in connection with technical applications in the various markets.”
A broad array of interesting presentations were on the agenda again this year. These included topics such as smart production in the Industry 4.0 environment, the new hybrid technology for tactile and optical measuring technology, high-performance processes for bevel gear production with an extended “PowerSkiving” application, and the new dimension of high-productivity generating grinding with the new Speed Viper machine generation. The presentations also addressed solutions for areas outside the gear industry, such as the robotics industry.
The first Gear Seminar in Japan took place in Tokyo from May 14 to May 15, 2019 and the second series was held in Nagoya from May 16 to May 17. The Swedish Gear Seminar followed in Eskilstuna one month later, from June 18 to June 19, 2019.
