Workforce Education

Bob Errichello is one of AGMA’s expert instructors.

Grants from the Foundation created online versions of two AGMA popular courses: Gear Failure Analysisand Detailed Gear Design – Beyond Simple Service.  Since their debut in 2012, hundreds of AGMA members have taken advantage of this education opportunity.

NEW! The Foundation granted funds to AGMA in 2016 to revise and update the Detailed Gear Design course.

In 2004, with funding from the AGMA Foundation, AGMA debuted its 3-part Online Workforce Training Series: Fundamentals of Gearing, Parallel Gear Inspection, and Hobbing. These courses have trained thousands over the past 12 years. NEW! In 2017, AGMA will update these courses with a new Foundation grant.

University Based Research

The Foundation funded research on Gear Micropitting at The Ohio State University.

The Foundation has provided over $350,000 in funding for cutting edge gear research.  The Foundation’s most recent grant on Gear Micropitting went to the GearLab at The Ohio State University.


We appreciate your support! The Annual Campaign is an important source of funds for the Foundation’s education and training programs, research grants, and operating expenses.

Support for the Foundation through the Annual Campaign is vital to the survival and operation of the Foundation, since AGMA membership dues do not cover operating expenses for the AGMAFoundation. Contributions made to the AGMA Foundation, a Section 501( c)(3) organization under the Internal Revenue Code, are considered charitable contributions for U.S. federal income tax purposes.
