Introduction

Gear drives are the heart of mechanical engineering, and they are used in a vast number of applications. A great number of gear variants can be used together to form gear units. The lubricants used for gear drives are equally varied. Good knowledge of both elements is required for making an optimum lubricant selection.

Target Audience

Designers, developers, engineers, technicians, consultants and users from all areas of mechanical and plant engineering, equipment manufacturing, and the lubricant industry.

Main Topics

  • Basics of tribology
  • Gear types and their tribological requirements
  • Lubricant types and their suitability for the lubrication of gears
  • Materials and compatibility
  • Special gear applications
  • Tribometry - testing gear lubricants

Objectives

This course covers the basics of tribology and gear technology as well as the suitability of different lubricant types for use in gear drives. Participants will learn how to determine the optimum, or at least an appropriate, lubricant based on the tribological conditions in the gear unit and its operating conditions, as well as how to rule out unsuitable lubricants.
