The 3000 series of Metric spline shafts and bushings, available from T.E.A. Machine Components, is designed for applications in the mechanical engineering sector and the automotive industry.
The spline shafts and bushings offer an economical and efficient way to transfer high transmission torques from shafts to gears, pulleys and other components, or to couple two shafts together.
Additionally, because the splines permit sliding between the shaft and bushing in the axial direction, by press fitting a spline bushing into a component, such as a gear or belt pulley, the component can be shifted axially as desired even during rotation. Such splined components can transmit much higher torques than when retained by means of set screws or keyways.
The spline shafts and bushings are manufactured from high quality materials to DIN ISO Standards and are available in C45 cold drawn, unhardened carbon steel, in stocked lengths of 1000mm.
The shaft diameters range from 11 - 42mm with six keys, or eight keys on the larger sizes. Longer shaft lengths and a stainless steel version are available upon request.
The mating bushings are also available from stock in St 52.3 - non alloy structured steel with RG7 bronze, stainless steel and clamp styles upon request.
