ANSI B92.1 and B92.2 Involute Splines

ANSI B92.1 and B92.2 Involute Splines

ANSI B92.1 and B92.2 Involute Splines

This question was asked earlier this year but I don't know if there was ever an answer.  ANSI B92.1 and B92.2 standards for Inch and Metric, respectively, splines have been withdrawn by ANSI but there doesn't seem to be any replacement American standard.  My company has used these standards in the past but if there is a replacement American spline standard we would be anxious to know and not continue to use an obsolete standard.  

I have looked up SAE and AGMA websites and haven't seen anything.  We use DIN 5480 for our European customers but some US customers want ANSI.

Any ideas?

RE: ANSI B92.1 and B92.2 Involute Splines

I should have replied to this before, but anyway here is what I found out:

B92.1-1996 and B92.2M are still the current SAE spline standards, even though ANSI has them listed in error (mistakenly) as "withdrawn".  However, due to bureaucratic delays B92.2 is out of print.  SAE are now in the course of reaffirming them.  No changes are planned to the content of the standards themselves.

White Paper – Data Security and Know-How Protection
Our data is constantly exposed to the danger of being intercepted or stolen as it wends its way over global data networks. Data security measures and measures for protecting intellectual property should not, however, first be implemented when data is exchanged – companies must lay the foundation for these measures within their own organization.
