The set screw is used to take up the slack. The resulting Iriction is used to provide resistance to axial motion.

The taper will impart a compressive contact pressure between the hub and the shaIt. Friction will help transmit torque and provide resistance to axial motion oI the hub relative to the shaIt. Tapered keys do not require set screws. Access to both ends oI tapered keys are required so that the key can be inserted and driven out when the key is being removed.GibGibHead KeysHead KeysInstallation is similar to standard tapered keys. The extended head provides a holding method Ior removing the key by pulling instead oI driving it out.M ott, Figure 11-3, Shigley, Fig. 8-28W oodruff KeysW oodruff KeysM ott, Figure 11-3ANSI Standard B17.2 ANSI Standard B17.2- -1967 lists recom m ended dim ensions 1967 lists recom m ended dim ensions for W oodruff Keys. for W oodruff Keys.Circular groove in shaIt holds the key in place while the hub is slid over the shaIt.

Peterson, Stress Concentration Factors, W iley, New York, 1974. Factors, W iley, New York, 1974.Key seats create stress concentrations in the shaIt. There are diIIerent stress concentration Iactors Ior bending and torsional loads. Peterson contains a compilation oI stress concentration Iactors that includes key seat geometries. For Ilat end mills, Peterson gives Kt2.14 Ior bending and Kt2.62 Ior torsion. These may be reduced by using key seats made with bull end mills. The stress concentration Iactor Ior a sled runner key seat is signiIicantly lower than Ior a proIile key seat. A circular key and keyseat will have lower stress concentration Iactors any other key geometry.Assignm entAssignm ent1. Determine the length oI a parallel key Ior a gear to be mounted on a shaIt with a 2.00 in-diameter shaIt. The key is made Irom AISI 1020 cold-drawn steel. The gear transmits 21,000 lb-in oI torque and has a hub length oI 4.00 inch.2. A V-belt sheave transmits 1,112 lb-in oI torque to a 1.75 in-diameter shaIt. The sheave is made Iorm ASTM class 20 cast iron and has a hub length oI 1.75 in. Design a parallel key and key seat. The key material is AISI 1020 cold-drawn steel.

When these standard lengths are used, the shear strength of the splines will exceed that of the shaft from which they are made.Spline Spline Manufacturing MethodsManufacturing Methodswww.drivetraindirect.comForged blank is rolled under tons of pressure prior to heat treating.The finished spline is more accurate and stronger (35%) than cut spines.Splines are either cut (machined) or rolled. Rolled splines are stronger than cut splines due to the cold working of the metal. Nitriding is common to achieve very hard surfaces which reduce wear.Rolled Rolled Spline Spline Process ProcessSplineSplineFailure ExampleFailure Examplewww.4wdonline.comNote the yielding of the shaft outside of the engagement area due to a torsional load. The mating internal spline forced the external slines to remain parallel. In this case the spline is stronger than the shaft.Splined Splined Linear BearingLinear Bearingwww.tsubaki.comCircular shaped splines have been combined with ball bearings to create linear bearings that can resist a torsional load.PolygonsPolygonswww.generalpolygon.comAn alternative to splines that has significantly lower stress concentration is the polygon.
