Title: SPLINED JOINT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a splined joint, in particular for a drive train of a motor vehicle, having two parts, which are arranged about an axis of rotation (d) and have first and second toothing regions (2) forming a rotational connection which is preloaded in the circumferential direction. The first toothing region (2) is formed from two toothing elements (3, 4) with first and second toothings (6, 7) which are phase-shifted in the circumferential direction. The toothing elements (3, 4) are connected to each other by means of an elastomer body (5) such that they can be twisted to a limited extent, and the first and second toothings (6, 7) are held on a third toothing of the second toothing region, forming a preloading force, effective in the circumferential direction, of the elastomer body (5). To simplify the formation of the preloading during the process of joining the toothing regions (2), the first and second toothings (6, 7) have, over at least a portion, different pitches relative to the axis of rotation (d).
