All of Misumi’s induction-hardened Standard and Precision Linear Shafts are precision formed, ground and machined to tight concentricity and straightness dimensional tolerances. The shafts come in standard and configurable sizes and lengths, as well as in a selection of materials/grades (e.g., Bearing Steel, Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel) and surface treatments (e.g., chrome plating, LTBC plating), depending on the user’s specifications and application requirements. Users can also configure the dimensions of over 90 different machined end variations.
