Steel shafts are frequently used in machines and are a basic component of circular guides. MISUMI manufactures and supplies over 550 types of steel shafts for a whole host of industrial applications, offering more than one billion different configuration options. Together with a wide range of linear bushings, these shafts can be used to create variants that are well tailored to specific guide tasks. Shafts are available in lengths from 10 to 1500 mm, with diameters ranging from 3 to 50 mm. Variants are available in both the standard and precision accuracy classes, and in tolerance classes g6, h5 and f8. The shafts are manufactured from surface-hardened steels, namely 1.3505/100Cr6, 1.4125/X105CrMo17, 1.4301/X5CrNi18-10 and 1.1191/C45E. If surface treatment is required, possibilities include hard chrome and low-temperature black chrome plating (LTBC plating). With a wide range of options available in terms of dimensions and shape, as well as various end finish and thread type options, these shafts can be configured with a high degree of accuracy and ordered to suit specific applications.
