3D gear surface measurement development for wind turbines - free online seminar

Developments in measurement technology now enable us to measure the 3D surfaces of gears, but how do we use the results?  This short online seminar will update you on research work undertaken in the EURAMET funded Met4Wind project and provide some suggestions.  The methods are generic and applicable to all gear applications.

Topics will include:

·         An introduction to holistic gear measurement

·         2D and 3D Harmonic analysis of gear surfaces

·         Measurement and evaluation of damage on gear surfaces using both replicas and directly on the gear surface.

The sessions are pre-recorded so you can go through the material at your own pace reviewing or skipping material as required.  A live Q&A session with the presenters will follow and we will also discuss future development plans. A PDF copy of the presentations will be available after the event to those who register.
