Splines, by definition, are teeth or ridges on a drive shaft that interlock with another gear to be able t produce force called torque. Central to this transfer is the angular interlocking between the two gears, which is done by the spline shaft between the two of them.
These interlocking measurements are what True Gear spline shafts are best known for. The following are the specifications that the company produces using its top of the line spline shaft production equipment:
- Diameter. The spline shaft diameter that the company can produce can measure up to 120 inches in diameter;
- Length. The spline shaft length can reach up to 80 inches with a diameter of 9.8 inches per individual spline shaft;
- Internal Diameter. The maximum spline shaft internal measurement can reach up to 115 inches in diameter.
- DP. The allowable DP measurements for spline shafts can measure between 48/96 to ½ DP.
The sheer variety of spline shaft products True Gear can provide does not mean it sacrifices on quality. Each individual spline shaft cut would be examined with every gear produced by the company. The quality inspection applies the current AGMA industry standards, with both over pins or CMM methodology used to determine quality.
As assured by the company on its website, “Quality isn’t just the last step before a gear leaves our facility; it’s the first step toward providing you a gear that meets our stringent standards. A complete gear manufacturer understands that developing a precise and long lasting gear requires attention to quality assurance right from the first step.”
As a further step to this quality commitment to spline shaft manufacturing, True Gear has invested in highly accurate measuring equipment from ZEISS. Thus, the client is reassured that each spline shaft cut would be of top quality and no shortcut were undertaken in its production.
