Linear Shafts

 (6 product groups)

A linear shaft is a straight, precision machined bar on which linear bearings run to create a linear guide system to support or guide the movement of equipment in a linear fashion. Suitable for use with our linear shafts are our range of linear bearings. A linear bearing, also known as a linear ball bush or bushing, runs on the hardened linear shaft, and, with the aid of a support at each end, linear shafts and bearings are very quick and easy to set up.

We've put together these handy guides to give you more information:

Aluminium Shafts

In stock In production

These Aluminium Shafts are a versatile, non-magnetic, and lightweight alternative for various sectors that require a sturdy and durable component. It has a great strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and thermal conductivity. The corrosion resistance offers a longer lifespan for the shafts and avoids the need for regular maintenance or replacement.

It can endure huge loads and function without deformation or failure under harsh circumstances. It is not meant for use with ball bush linear bearings but rather with self-lubricating ceramic bushings.

It can endure temperatures ranging from -130 C to +200 C. Given these characteristics, they are frequently used in applications such as oil and gas equipment, medical devices, the construction sector, and the automobile industry.

  • Have a great strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and thermal conductivity.
  • The corrosion resistance offers a longer lifespan for the shafts and avoids the need for regular maintenance or replacement.
  • It can endure temperatures ranging from -130 C to +200 C.

Hardened Hollow Shafts

In stock In production

Hardened Hollow Shafts are robust and reliable components used in various mechanical applications. They are used with linear bushings when weight reduction is necessary, but the structural integrity is not compromised. This weight decrease enables greater efficiency, lower energy usage, and increased manoeuvrability.

Its design allows fluids, gases, or electrical wires to travel through the centre of it. When paired with a linear ball bushing, it offers smooth and accurate rotational motion.

It is used in applications where high strength and durability are required and where weight reduction is also important, such as industrial machinery, automotive systems, and medical devices.

  • It is used in applications such as industrial machinery, automotive systems and medical devices.
  • Its lighter weight enables greater efficiency, lower energy usage and increased manoeuvrability.
  • The design allows fluids, gases or electrical wires to travel through its centre.

Shaft End Supports

In stock In production

Shaft End Supports provide linear shafts with stability, alignment, and support. These components are intended to firmly hold standard shaft diameters in place while allowing for smooth and accurate movement of the linear bushing.

They firmly keep the shaft in position, limiting lateral or radial movement that could cause misalignment or excessive wear.

It is used in applications including machine tools, medical devices, and industrial automation equipment.

  • Provide linear shafts with stability, alignment, and support.
  • Firmly keep the shaft in position, limiting lateral or radial movement.
  • It is used in machine tools, medical devices, and industrial automation equipment

Stainless AISI 303/316 Shafts

In stock In production

Stainless AISI 303/316 Shafts are used in industries that demand high/very high corrosion resistance, strength, and durability. This guarantees that the shafts can tolerate difficult conditions such as high humidity, chemicals, high-temperature resistance, excellent weldability, and corrosive substances without affecting their structural integrity. As a result, these shafts have a longer lifespan and require less maintenance, resulting in less downtime and lower total operational expenses.

Ceramic bearings should be utilised instead of ball-bushing linear bearings. Suitable for applications involving heavy loads, high speeds, and abrasive environments.

It is used in x-ray equipment, paper processing equipment, hardware equipment, and food processing equipment.

  • Can tolerate high humidity, chemicals, and corrosive substances.
  • Ceramic bearings should be utilised instead of ball-bushing linear bearings.
  • It is used in x-ray equipment, and food processing equipment.
