Motion Control • Linear Shafting

Shafting is a linear drive component that is critical for motion transfer in motion control systems and machinery.

Linear shafting is a heat- treated, rounded metal typically used with a linear bushing - within a linear motion system. Linear shafts allow the bushing’s rolling elements to smoothly run along the shaft diameter without damaging it. Linear shafts are available in steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, and ceramic coated finish; and can be pre-drilled, non-drilled, threaded, grooved, ground, and ultra-ground.
