Achieving Torque Transmission With A Splined Shaft

February 07, 2024
Custom splined shafts from True Gear & Spline Ltd. in Cambridge, ON

We know that gears are widely used to transmit torque between mechanical components. However, their counterparts, splined shafts, are not given the credit they deserve. It won't be an exaggeration to say that these shafts are equally important for torque transmission. One of the significant differences between shafts and gears is that while the former uses all grooves simultaneously, the latter uses only one tooth at a time. The use of all grooves simultaneously helps generate more power as compared to gears. In this blog, we discuss all you need to know about achieving flawless torque transmission with a splined shaft.


What Makes Splined Shaft Efficient In Torque Transmission? 

Achieving torque transmission with a cylindrical shaft is easy! One of the first steps is to source them from a trusted manufacturer or supplier. The manufacturer's reputation greatly influences the quality of the shafts.


True Gear & Spline Ltd. in Cambridge, ON, is a dependable custom spline shaft manufacturer. You can rely on us for all your gear and spline shaft needs in Ontario. What is it that makes these shafts so good at facilitating torque transmission?


Well, for one, they are made of the highest quality steel or alloy. The sturdiness and durability ensure that these shafts don't break or get damaged even under high-stress situations. This robustness ensures consistent torque delivery without compromising structural integrity.


The unique design of a splined shaft, featuring multiple teeth or grooves, also contributes to its efficiency in torque transmission. The multiple ridges in length provide more surface area for engagement with corresponding components like gears or couplings. All this means that there is enhanced grip, minimal slippage, and optimal power transfer.


A splined shaft is an essential component for achieving efficient torque transmission in various industries and applications. Its unique design and sturdiness make it perfect for high-load situations where other types of shafts may falter.
