Registration Now Open for Helios Gear School 2023; Limited Space

After 33 years, over 1,500 educated attendees and 68 facility tours, the Helios team is excited to continue to help manufacturers build shops full of gear experts by hosting the 2023 Helios Gear School. The seminar course is designed for entry-level gear manufacturing personnel including manufacturing management, industrial engineers, supervisors, set-up technicians, operators and quality control.


From May 16-18, this intensive three-day program covers the basics of gear manufacturing from cutting to finishing, then through final inspection. With a limited class size of 35, this course provides the optimum learning environment for attendees new to the industry and those with experience in need of a refresher.


One participant from General Motors describes the course as an excellent experience, mentioning that the “instructors were very friendly, and it was nice to see a wide variety of equipment and processes.”


Beyond the classroom the course features machine demonstrations at Helios Gear Products, and immersive plant tours at Forest City Gear and Overton Chicago Gear. “They did a great job including everyone, making it an interactive class, and the tours were a great addition” said another participant from Amarillo Gear.


The 2023 course features six industry-expert instructors including Adam Gimpert, David Harroun, Jason Spitzer, Michael Weas of Helios and Shane Hollingsworth of Kapp-Niles to offer a wide variety of perspectives and operational experiences.
