January 20, 2020—
The AGMA Technical Division recently announced the release of AGMA ISO 18792-A19, Lubrication of industrial gear drives.
Gear lubrication is important in all types of gear applications. Through adequate lubrication, gear design and selection of gear lubricant, the gear life can be extended, and the gearbox efficiency improved. In order to focus on the available knowledge of gear lubrication, ISO/TC 60 decided to produce this Technical Report combining primary information about the design and use of lubricants for gearboxes.
ISO/TR 18792 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 60, Gears, Subcommittee SC 2, Gear capacity calculation. The AGMA Lubrication committee voted to adopt ISO/TR 18792:2008 in January 2019. The first draft of AGMA ISO 18792-A19, was made in March 2019. The adoption was approved by the AGMA Technical Division Executive Committee on June 10, 2019. AGMA ISO 18792-A19 represents an identical adoption of ISO/TR 18792:2008. The document is 47 pages and priced for AGMA members at $185 (after February 17, 2020) and priced for nonmembers at $370.
