We have used a Hob to machine splines for years at our facility.  Due to Lean Manufacturing principles and the pursuit for continual improvement, we decided to try and start Milling our splines onto our Stub Shafts.  If this was possible, we would be able to streamline our Stub Shaft manufacturing process and eliminate a current bottleneck in the process.  Eliminating this bottle neck with allow us to better serve our customers and keep lead times to a minimum.  As you can see from this Video we have achieved our goal, and we are very excited to see what other improvements we can make in the future.
