Spherical gear couplings are a type of toothed coupling where the external spline usually requires highly crowned tooth surfaces to absorb high misalignments. The teeth of the external spline (or hub) may present cross sections with undercutting, particularly when the tooth number is small and the hub teeth are manufactured directly on a shaft. These peculiarities make it difficult to generate accurate hub geometries with the existing models in the literature. This paper proposes a method of generation of the hub tooth surfaces by a hob thread surface, simulating the hobbing process of the external spline and generating undercut profiles. The proposed hub model is compared with existing models where a cutting edge is considered as a generating tool of the hub. The comparison shows that the normal deviations between the hub tooth surfaces of the considered models are significant, especially when high misalignments (typically above 3∘) are present and highly crowned tooth surfaces are ...
