The BGA “Technical Awareness Days” (TAD) are a BGA collaboration with commercial suppliers of equipment, services and technology to showcase the latest product and industry developments. These 1-day events concentrate on a specific area of Gear Technology from both a technical and commercial standpoint.

The “Industrialists’ roadmapping event for the future of transmission manufacturing in the UK.” Technical Awareness Day is being held in conjunction with AMRC on 13th February 2020 9.30am – 4pm at AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre in Sheffield. Attendance at this event is free of charge to BGA Members.

Please note places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

About the TAD. 

As electrification and lightweighting are introduced to numerous industries, the architecture and specification of transmissions will change. With this change, what are the opportunities for the UK to be at the forefront of manufacturing technology for novel transmissions?

We need the steer of industrialists in order to guide the research focus for our consortium. This in turn will lead to effective collaborative research projects for the benefit of UK industry. Join us on 13th February 2020 to make your voice heard and shape the direction of UK gear manufacturing research. There will also be talks on funding opportunities for collaborative industrial research projects and the opportunity to network with peers from the gears industry.

We will be considering topics including the following, all from a perspective of manufacture.

  • Lightweighting
  • Electrification / High Speed Transmissions
  • Smart gearboxes and smart manufacture
  • Additive
  • Efficiency
  • Other (non gear) transmission components
  • Materials and surface engineering
  • Remanufacture
  • Reshoring

After you have registered we will send you a form to rank your topic preferences or add to the agenda so as to shape the day accordingly.

The TAD is free of charge to BGA members and AMRC guests, but pre-registration is mandatory.  Please click below to register your place online or contact Lindsay or Kirsty at the BGA to book direct.
