Shaft-hub connections

Strategic selection, standard-compliant proof and confident optimisation

About the topic

Shaft-hub connections are used to transmit torque and forces between shafts and hubs and are among the most frequently used machine elements. A different type of connection is required depending on the practical application (load-carrying, frictional or positive-locking). The wide range of connection types and the broad range of applications for shaft-hub connections present engineers with challenges time and again in their selection and design.

The seminar gives you a systematic overview of the most common types of connection and relevant decision-making criteria in order to choose the best shaft-hub connection for your application in terms of functionality and cost. You also gain familiarity with the standard-compliant calculation process and its computer-based application.
