BGA Research: Technology Road Map.

The BGA, is committed to secure and enhance the mechanical Power Transmission industry in the United Kingdom. A key part of this mission is to ensure our members are aware of all the evolving technologies that can affect their business. We are delighted to launch the BGA Research: Technology Road Map.

The BGA technology road map has been designed to identify technologies that will affect the gear and mechanical power transmission industry, its users and suppliers and the impact of the industry and its users on the environment.

The BGA Road Map is used to drive our;

  • Literature surveys and State of the Art reviews
  • Technology Awareness Days
  • Special Interest Groups
  • Seed funding of research
  • Collaborative research
  • Application for Government funded research

Get Involved.

We are looking to members to identify technologies you believe should be put on the road map; new, emerging and current technologies you feel are not yet fully exploited. In addition, and for completeness, we would also ask you to identify technologies that are not yet available but should be developed to overcome knowledge gaps and problems that need to be solved such as; prediction of heat treatment distortion.
