Polygon systems: the ultimate shaft-to-hub connection.Polygon polygon, closed plane figure bounded by straight line segments as sides. A polygon is convex if any two points inside the polygon can be connected by a line segment that does not intersect any side. If a side is intersected, the polygon is called concave. shaft-to-hub connections can transmit twice the torque of involute involute (in´vloot),
v to decrease normally, in size and functional activity, an organ whose role in the body economy is temporary or splines in the same shaft shaft (shaft) a long slender part, such as the diaphysis of a long bone.
1. An elongated rodlike structure, such as the midsection of a long bone.
2. diameter, due to the elimination of stress concentration risers. Three-lobe polygons are self-centering and provide perfect concentricity con·cen·tric also con·cen·tri·cal
Having a common center.
[Middle English concentrik, from Medieval Latin concentricus : Latin com-, com- + Latin , as they are precision ground on centers, with the shaft bearing diameters, using one set-up. They can be ground after heat treating, for absolute minimal clearance and backlash. Zero backlash connections are manufactured using taper polygons. Four-lobe polygons, with close to zero backlash, slide smoothly under torque loads. Company specializes in machining polygons on customer's parts, or manufacturing parts complete.
