Compared to straight-sided (i.e., parallel) splines, involutes splines offer several advantages, including:
- Simpler design, which allows for easier—and thereby cheaper—manufacturin
- Greater contact area along the tooth profile, resulting in smoother operation
- Higher tolerance for misalignment
Design Considerations for Involute Splines
When designing and selecting an involute spline for an application, there are several factors that designers and engineers should keep in mind to ensure optimal performance. Read more...
Unlike “hobbing” where material is removed by cutting the Grob process of cold roll forming displaces raw material to form the desired shape with virtually no waste. The process increases strength, durability, and produces an extremely high surface finish. Read more...More Product Announcements from Grob, Inc.
