Gleason’s Gear School goes Virtual!

The well-known Gear School offered by Gleason Cutting Tools in Rockford, IL for more than 70 years, is now available virtually. Join experienced experts to learn about gear theory and math, the required tooling, manufacture and inspection of gears. 

Traditional classes are now split into a series of weekly sessions over the course of 5 weeks, which build gear know-how modularly and step-by-step. With each session participants will learn more about different aspects of gear technology and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes including Power Skiving and latest gear inspection solutions. We offer this series twice a year.

The Gear School is intended for “anyone” interested in learning more about the world of gears. The course is regularly attended by people in all aspects of the gear manufacturing processes; including purchasing, sales, engineering, and manufacturing. The course starts with basic topics and builds on them to give students a full understanding of the basic building blocks of the gear industry. Upon leaving the Gear School, students should have enough knowledge to identify different types of gears, gear cutting tools, and processes used everyday in the gear industry.
