Machine builders can now get their hands on norelem’s splined shafts and splined hubs
Available in a range of standard sizes and materials, splined shafts in combination with splined hubs provide form-locked connection to transmit high torques with simultaneous axial displacement. In comparison to keyed shafts, a typical alternative method of transferring rotary motion, splined connections provide an equally distributed load along the sides of the teeth. This shared load can provide a longer fatigue life than a keyway drive, says norelem.
For enhanced versatility and adaptability, norelem’s components feature straight parallel flanks and the main dimensions comply with DIN ISO 14 (formerly DIN 5463), the most commonly used type of splined shafts and hubs. norelem splined shafts are manufactured in cold drawn C45 grade steel, or stainless steel type 1.4301 (also known as grade 304). The cold drawn process gives the shafts a high tensile strength and a smooth, polished finish.
norelem confirms that he splined hubs are available with or without flanges, again in C45 steel or stainless steel 1.4301, as well as in RG7 type red brass. Machine builders can find these components ans much more in norelem’s definitive catalogue, THE BIG GREEN BOOK. Datasheets and CAD drawings are available online, and the shafts and hubs can be ordered directly through norelem’s webshop.
