British Gear Association offers training to AEMT members
The AEMT has been looking for ways to expand the training offering available to members. Teaming up with the Newcastle based British Gear Association (BGA) means that AEMT members can take advantage of the excellent training courses put together by the association at a reduced rate.
Based on the University of Newcastle upon Tyne’s campus, the BGA was formed as a conduit to raise the Power Transmission industry’s profile along with the companies and individuals it represents. The BGA is well represented on British and International Standard committees, providing the Chairman of the British Standards Institution’s MCE/5 Committee on Gearing and the Chairman to ISO TC60 sub-committee SC1. They are the leading providers of gear related training in the UK. 

Courses are well attended within the power transmission industry and the association offers introductory classes to more in-depth specialist training. Most courses are CPD accredited, contributing to an individual’s professional development. 

Thomas Marks, secretary to the AEMT explains that, “AEMT members are increasingly handling gearboxes in their mechanical workshops, so having a comprehensive understanding is necessary for them to provide the high quality service expected from an AEMT service centre.”

“Through this partnership, AEMT Member companies will now find it even easier to acquire an understanding of the design principals and fabrication methods of gearboxes, as well as learning to recognise gear wear and failure.”

Courses that AEMT members should be particularly interested in are the Gear Wear & Failure Recognition on the 10th October 2018 and 7th March 2019; Gear Stress Analysis on the 9th & 10th April 2019; Bearings & Condition Monitoring on 24th April 2019; Gear Measurement on 7th & 8th May 2019. A full list of courses can be found in the Events section of the BGA website at www.bga.org.uk.

*For 20% off the listed price, members who are interested in attending a BGA course should get in touch with the secretariat on admin@aemt.co.uk.

I had the privilege of speaking at the annual AEMT conference and was fascinated by the discussion around the changing nature of our global economic structure into a circular economy, writes Paul Dewison of MetalsPlus. It is a topic at the top of the global agenda. In fact, replacing the current take-make-dispose model with a circular economy, which aims to design waste out of the system powered by renewable energy sources, was discussed at length during the recent 24th UN Conference on Climate Change.
