GMaRC / BGA INDUSTRIALISTS ROADMAPPING DAY.

The GMaRC group of UK gear manufacturing researchers hosted the latest BGA Technical Awareness Day (TAD) at AMRC in Rotherham on 13th February.  Please click here to download the full GMaRC brochure.

The delegates were asked to share and develop their ideas for the future of our industry, particularly in light of the changes arising through electrification in numerous sectors. 

These ideas were captured in the form of a roadmap where the overarching trends and drivers affecting the gears industry were fed by industrial capabilities, innovation outputs and innovation challenges. 

Throughout the day, the industrialists were asked to define their ideas for each of these and the relationships between each area.  This was done with regard to the key themes of electrification, lightweighting, smart manufacture & smart transmissions, transmission efficiency, materials & surface conditioning and remanufacture. 

The roadmap output is currently being refined and consolidated; the results will be disseminated to industry via the GMaRC booth on the High Value Manufacturing Catapult stand at the MACH 2020 Exhibition in April at Birmingham NEC, do visit if you are there!
