An Overview of Linear Shafts
In machine manufacturing, a linear shaft is a straight, precision machined rod on which linear bearings are mounted in order to construct a longitudinal guide system that supports or directs the movement of equipment in a straight line. These linear shafts are available in hardened stainless steel, hardened steel, 316 stainless steel, and aluminium. On short lead times, the experts at Bolton Engineering Products Ltd can also build linear shafts to your drawing, complete with custom machinings such as keyways, circlips grooves, drill and tap holes, and other features as required.
