AGMA began on the cutting edge of new technologies. In 1916, a new gear market was emerging. It emphasized quiet operation, particularly for timing gears in the automotive industry. Gear manufacturers were exploring various materials – but lacked technical standards for non-metallic gearing. AGMA was born when R.D. Nuttall Company brought together several gear manufacturers to discuss developing such standards.
