Abstract (en)

A ribbon hub and spool assembly includes a hub having at least two cantilever beams having a smooth, tapered, and curved crown, and a spool having curved and tapered splines. The cantilever beams balance the forces when inserting the hub into the spool, and the shape of the crowns of the hub and splines of the spool enable easy insertion and alignment of the hub and spool assembly.
