Advantages of Involute Splines as Compared to Straight Sided Splines
May 1, 1985
Since the design of involute splines and
their manufacture requires considerable
knowledge, not only of the basic properties of the involute profile, but also of various other elements which affect the spline fit and the sometimes complex principles underlying manufacturing and checking equipment, the question is frequently raised as to why the involute profile is given preference in designing splines over the seemingly simpler straight sided tooth profile.
