|Planetary Geartrain Design, Development, and Applications for Automatic Transmissions|
|I.D. #||C1351||Duration||2 Days|
A comprehensive and practical understanding of planetary gear trains is critical for individuals involved with the design and development of automatic transmissions. A key component of the automatic transmission system, the planetary gear train is able to deliver reliable gains in power, durability, higher torque-to-weight ratios, and configuration flexibility.
This two-day seminar will provide participants an advanced and comprehensive presentation on the topics of planetary gear train design, development, and applications for automatic transmissions. The instructor will guide participants through an increasingly complex set of topics including planetary gear train requirements, case study, and future trends in advanced transmission design and development.
| By attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
