Special Machined Shafting

Thomson Special Machined Shafting

While shafts may appear the same to the untrained eye, manufacturing practices and standards significantly impact the surface finish, roundness, straightness, and case depth and hardness of the shafting.  Thomson 60 Case® shafting is manufactured to the highest quality standards in an ISO 9000:2000 registered facility and, when used with Thomson Ball Bushing bearings, ensures optimal bearing performance and travel life. 



Special Machining Highlights:

  • High quality AISI 1566 steel provides consistent, homogenous microstructure and proper reponse to thermal processing
  • Industry-leading standard maximum surface finish of 8 Ra, resulting in longer bearing life
  • Available with industry standard radial holes drilled and tapped to accept a continuous shaft support rail
  • Can be supplied specially machined per customer drawing and/or application requirements
