The standard temperature for measurement is 20 ??C.
4 Inspection of major diameter and minor diameter of
spline
4.1 The limit size of the minor diameter of the internal spline Dii may be checked by the general smooth GO plug gauge and the NO GO plug gauge, it may also be measured by other methods.
4.2 The limit size of the minor diameter of the external spline Dee may be checked by the general smooth GO plug gauge and the NO GO plug gauge, it may also be measured by other methods.

5 Inspection of the space width of internal spline, tooth
thickness of external spline, diameter of involute end
circle, diameter of involute starting circle
In GB/T 3478.1, it specifies three composite inspection methods and one single- item inspection method, totally four inspection methods, which are used to inspect four limit sizes of the space width and the tooth thickness (see Figure 1), as well as the minimum value of diameter of the involute?€?s end circle DFi min and the maximum value of the diameter of the starting circle DFe max.
See Appendix A for the involute spline gauges used to inspect the space width and tooth thickness.
thereby controlling the minimum value Cv min of the active side gap.
At the same time, use the non-whole-depth NO GO spline gauge (plug gauge or ring gauge) or use the measured M value (pin spacing MRi or cross-pin distance MRe) (for the external spline, it may use the average length W value of the measured common normal line), to control the maximum value of actual space width of the internal spline Emax or the minimum value of the actual tooth thickness of the external spline Smin, thereby controlling the minimum physical size of the internal and external.
5.2 Method-A
On the basis of the basic method, add the use of NO GO composite spline gauge (plug gauge or ring gauge), to control the maximum value of the active space width of the internal spline Ev max or the minimum value of the active tooth thickness of the external spline Sv min, thereby controlling the maximum value Cv max of the active side gap.
This method is suitable for two-way-rotation transmissions that have return requirements.
5.3 Method-B
Use the GO composite spline gauge and the NO GO composite spline gauge
(plug gauge or ring gauge) to respectively control the minimum value Ev min and the maximum value Ev max of the active space width of the internal spline or the maximum value Sv max and the minimum value Sv min of the active tooth thickness of the external spline, thereby controlling the minimum value Cv min and the maximum value Cv max of the active side gap.
This method may only be used when the method-A is adopted, and it is proved by mass production that the process quality is stable. If the process quality fluctuates and may affect the product quality, it shall also use the method-A. 5.4 Single-item inspection method
Use the NO GO sector gauge and the NO GO sector gauge, or the pin spacing MRi, to control the maximum value Emax and the minimum value Emin of the actual space width of the internal spline. Use the NO GO sector gauge and the NO GO sector gauge, or the measured cross-pin distance MRe or the average length W value of common nominal line, to control the maximum value Smax and the minimum value Smin of the actual tooth thickness of the external spline. At the same time, use the measured total pitch error, the tooth profile error, the tooth helix error to control the integrated error.
This method is suitable for splines which are single-item or small-batch 5.4.4 Inspection of measured size M value by measuring pin
5.4.4.1 The diameter of the measuring pin (DRi, DRe) as well as the measured size M value of the measuring pin (MRi min, MRi max, MRe min, MRe max) are as shown in GB/T 3478.6 ~ 3478.8.
5.4.4.2 Measuring pin for measurement shall comply with the provisions of GB/T 3478.9.
5.4.4.3 When the diameter of the actually-selected measuring pin is different from those as listed in GB/T 3478.9, the M value shall be calculated according to the diameter of the actually-selected measuring pin.
5.4.4.4 The M values (maximum and minimum values) as actually-measured
on the same external spline shall be within the range of specified limits. 5.4.5 Inspection of average length W of common normal line
5.4.5.1 The average length W value of the common nominal line and the
number of crossed-teeth which is used for the external spline are as shown in GB/T 3478.6 ~ 3478.8.
5.4.5.2 The length of the common nominal line as actually-measured on the same external spline takes the average value, which shall be within the range of specified limits.
6 Selection and labeling of inspection methods

Gauges
A.1 General
A.1.1 Conditions of use of gauges
A.1.1.1 GO gauges
The GO composite plug and ring gauges shall enter or pass over the complete spline length. Composite spline gauges shall be used without excessive force to prevent damage or distortion to the component or gauge. In case of
disagreement, the composite gauge shall be accorded precedence in the
acceptance or rejection of a part. If there are two gauges available and both are within the gauge tolerances, the gauge which fits the part shall be accorded precedence.
If a part is rejected by the GO composite gauge, the gauge itself cannot provide the reason. The reason can only be identified by the measurement of the actual tooth thickness or space width using measuring pins or balls, as well as the analytical inspection of total pitch error, tooth profile error, tooth helix error. A.1.1.2 NO GO sector gauge
The NO GO sector gauge shall enter and pass completely through any specified position of the entire spline length. The inspection shall be carried out in at least three positions as equally-distributed as possible.
A.1.1.3 NO GO composite gauge
The NO GO composite gauge shall not enter the spline being inspected.
A.1.2 Limiting dimensions of use for gauges
The convenience of use of gauge is limited by the mass and size of the gauge. When the diameter of indexing circle D ??? 180 mm, it may be tested by the gauge. The diameter of indexing circle of gauge D > 180 mm. If the agreed between the supplier and the purchaser, the both parties may use the gauge.
A.1.3 Structure of spline plug gauge
A plug gauge which has a diameter of indexing circle D < 50 mm may be integral. Minor diameter:
A.5.4 Form diameter
Inspection method: Involute inspection instrument.
A.5.5 Tooth thickness of plug gauge
Inspection method: measurement by more than 2 measuring pins.
Measurements shall be made within the range of 0?? ~ 90?? at each end and in the middle of the pin length. To avoid wear and small dirt, the measuring pin shall be wiped clean. Measuring pins may have a tolerance that affects the measurement. In order to meet the requirements, it shall use a calibrated measuring pin which has an exact diameter.
A.5.6 Space width of ring gauge
The inspection method is same as in A.5.5. The ring gauge is inspected by the use of measuring pin and gauge block. If the gauge block can be axially moved without obstruction meanwhile there is no radial movement, the ring gauge is qualified.
A taper master plug gauge may also be used to inspect the size of the ring gauge.
A.5.7 Shape tolerance
Inspection method: gear measuring machine. The tooth profile error and the tooth helix error shall be measured in at least three equally-spaced angular positions on the left or right flanks. For composite gauges, the total pitch error and the indexing error may also be inspected.
A.5.8 Gauge wear inspection
During a test cycle, it shall be ensured that the gauge is still within the wear limit. When the spline?€?s space width and tooth thickness exceed a specified wear limit or when the shape error exceeds 1.5 times the allowable error, it shall consider disposal of the spline gauge.
