An Overview Of A Splined Shaft

July 25, 2022

Machines make a wide range of industrial tasks easy. This is why it is essential for businesses to pay extra attention to keeping machinery and equipment in good condition. Gears and splines are vital for the smooth functioning of the machines.


It is necessary to conduct regular maintenance and inspection of all the parts to prevent downtime due to the breakdown of machines. Gears and splines are essential aspects that need to be in top condition at all times. We discuss the splined shaft and its uses in detail in today's blog.



Fundamentals of spline shafts



These shafts are cylindrical and have teeth or ridges cut into them. Spline shafts provide effective torque transfer when attached to another moving part like a gear or a pulley.


The teeth and ridges are essential as they help the shaft stay connected with other moving parts. There are different types of manufacturing for these shafts. Following are some of the most common ways of spline shaft manufacturing.


  • Hobbing
  • Broaching
  • Milling
  • Extrusion
  • Shaping


Gear manufacturers use CNC machines to manufacture these shafts with precision and accuracy. These computer-controlled machines take human errors out of the equation, guaranteeing dependable and durable splined shafts.


The shape and teeth of the spline determine what applications it is suitable for. Custom spline shafts are popular because they are manufactured as per your requirements.
