Spline Design and Inspection

Spline Design and Inspection

A 2-Day Class

This course provides gear professionals with a general understanding of splines types, their design and application, inspection and measurement techniques, and causes for failure.

Learning Objectives

By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate the:

  • Common spline types and configurations
  • Theory and use of sector gages
  • Typical field failure / warranty (tooth wear, tooth breakage)
  • Fit, fit types, and fit classes of mating parts
  • Difference between customer requirements and application
  • Different types, class and tolerance of splines
  • Different types and techniques of measuring systems and methods
  • Fundamental application strategies of the various spline types
  • Basic design and analysis techniques for each major spline configuration
  • Process of how to configure, design, manufacture and inspect splines

Who Should Attend

The intended audience for this course is individuals with little or no previous experience in gear systems. Engineers new to the field of gearing, sales and marketing people responsible for interacting with gear engineers, component suppliers, and vehicle platform powertrain development specialists who have not been previously involved in gear system specification or design will benefit from this course.



Learners should have an undergraduate engineering degree or related technical background and ideally a basic understanding of gears.



  • Involute spline types and applications
  • Spline tooth geometry
  • Application considerations
  • Design parameters
  • Inspection and measurement techniques
  • Spline failure mechanisms and causes
