Linear Shafts

Linear shafts are generally ground to high accuracy in roundness, straightness, surface finishings and are annealed, quenched and tempered (heat treated) to assure a uniform hardened layer in both the radial and axial direction to minimise wear and frictional resistance.

Linear shafts are produced in different materials including high-carbon chromium bearing steel, stainless steel and aluminium. The shafts are available in a broad range of radial sizes & shaft lengths and can be custom configured including pre-drilled and tapped holes, precision end machining, retaining ring grooves, bearing journals etc to meet specific requirements for any given application.
