AGMA is the global network for technical standards, education, and business information for manufacturers, suppliers, and users of mechanical power transmission components.
The American Gear Manufacturers Association is a voluntary association of companies, consultants, and academicians with a direct interest in the design, manufacture, and application of gears, couplings and related power transmission components and equipment.
Founded in 1916, AGMA is a member- and market-driven organization, conducting programs and providing services to the gear industry and its customers. AGMA member companies currently number more than 495. They include gear manufacturers from the United States, Mexico, and Canada, as well as gearing interests from more than 30 countries around the world.
GMA is accredited by the American National Standards Institute to write all U.S. standards on gearing. AGMA is also the Secretariat (Chairman) for Technical Committee 60 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). TC 60 is the committee responsible for developing all international gearing standards. In addition to holding the position of Secretariat, AGMA convenes (chairs) the active ISO Working Groups related to gear inspection and testing.
Today, AGMA is still on the cutting edge. The association includes about 495 of the world’s top gearing companies across more than 30 nations.
As in its beginnings, AGMA continues to literally set the standard. Its open standards development process is tailored to the global marketplace.
But AGMA also offers much more. Look through the AGMA website to learn about AGMA’s many events and training opportunities, publications, industry news, products and much more.
