Increasing Load Capacity of Splines due to Design
Splines are common used shaft-hub-connections with high performance in torque transmission. There are several national and international standards (e.g. ISO 4156, ANSI B92, DIN 5480, DIN 5466) containing information about the teeth geometry, the basic use particularly for the calculation and dimensioning of spline fit connection. But for special applications that require the increase of load capactity the designers are free to adjust the splines design in detail. In this context some industrial application examples of modified splines are described.
