The profitability of today’s gear production is primarily influenced by the productivity of the single manufacturing processes. The ambition to lower piece costs is responsible for production processes carried closer to the limit given by their capability or new processes with a higher productivity being applied. The introduction of dry high-speed hobbing is an important step into this direction. Admittedly economically advantageous and reliable dry machining can only be assured, when the process requirements are known. Methods to apply them in industrial environment have to be followed consequently.
In our seminar we will introduce today’s developments regarding manufacturing processes and strategies for soft gear production as well as the capabilities and limits. For this purpose, experts from machine tool manufacturers, tool suppliers and drive train technologists will speak about their experiences, opinions and visions. The concept of the seminar focuses on industrial presentations that will be completed by fundamental scientific topics. It gives a lot of room to discussions and the exchange of experiences.

parking permit ? (please fill in)

The RWTH Aachen has introduced her parking management with parking controls in her areas. Therefore you need a parking permit for parkzone U when visiting us with your own or rented car. We therefore kindly ask you to inform us whether you need a parking ticket or not. If you need a ticket we will send it to you. There will be no additional costs for you but we have to pay for it, so we kindly ask you to order a ticket only in case you really need one.
You find the corresponding parking area of parkzone U in the Forckenbeckstrasse (Visit WZLforum)
In the area around our seminar building the traffic and parking situation is affected by construction work of the RWTH Aachen Campus. We hope for your understanding. If you have got any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Exclusively for the purpose of postal submission of similar offers my name and address will be electronically processed and saved (subject to our AGB). We would appreciate to sent you our seminar-information:
