Precision Shaft Alignment Benefits

  1. Reduced Energy Consumption

    Significant power savings can be made through accurate alignment. Precise alignment eliminates reaction forces and reduces energy consumption by up to 10%       

  2. Reduced Incidence of Repairs

    Mechanical seal repairs decline by up to 65% when precision alignment is carried out on a regular basis.

    The rate of repairs declines by up to 30% when precision laser alignment becomes an integral part of the pump repair schedule. Maintenance costs are also reduced through lower parts expenses and inventory levels.

  3. Longer Machine Life

    Relation between offset and bearing life cycle: The smaller the offset misalignment,  the greater the expected bearing life cycle.

how the shaft manufacturing process works

How the Shaft Manufacturing Process Works?

The most common process used to manufacture shafts is via CNC turning. Using this technique, workers or automated processes affix or clamp bars of materials to chucks and rotate them. While rotating, specialized tools use cutting and other subtractive processes to create and shape the end product.

As a leading metal products supplier, Atlas metal uses many different machining processes to create its precision ground shaft. Our facility houses a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment designed to optimize even the most complex aspects of the shaft-manufacturing processes. From custom tooling and fixturing to multi-axis equipment, we use all types of machinery to produce extremely precision shaft to tolerances within 0.00002mm.

Atlas Metal's Shaft-Manufacturing Capabilities

Atlas works with over three dozen types of raw materials to produce high-quality precision ground shaft that adhere to client specifications. We build shafts from materials ranging from.

Ferrous Metals

Common carbon steels, stainless steels, Inconel and titanium

Non-Ferrous Metals

Aluminum, brass, bronze and other exotic or precious metals


We build parts as small as 0.3mm diameter and as large as 300mm diameter


Our metal product parts range from 0.4mm to 600mm in length

Custom Precision Shaft Features

Atlas metal offers machined shafts to meet your custom requirements. Shafts are a key component in most rotating equipment. Shaft size greatly affects the torque characteristic in these machines. Hence, the precise design and prototyping of shafts is crucial for all applications.

Shafts at Atlas metal are available with diameters ranging from 0.010 to 1.00 inches and lengths ranging from 0.03 to 3 inches. Precision ground shafts, steering shafts, welded shafts, motor shaft, precision long turned shafts, auto shaft, linkages and component assemblies are some examples of the types of shafts we can produce. Our shafts have tight tolerance values of ± 0.00003 inches and are manufactured from materials of the finest quality.

Custom Precision Shaft Features

Custom Precision Shaft Material

Atlas metal offers Products made of alloy steel, carbon steel, or stainless steel, and then case-hardened, through-hardened, or annealed. Alloy steels are ferrous alloys based on iron, carbon and high to low levels of alloying elements such as chromium, molybdenum, vanadium and nickel. Alloy steels have better hardenability properties than carbon steels. They also offer superior durability.


Stainless steels are corrosion-resistant, ferrous alloys that contain chromium or nickel additions. Precision shafting that is case-hardened is hard at the surface, but relatively soft at the core. Products that are through-hardened have the same hardness throughout the stainless steel shaft. Unhardened or annealed precision shafting is also available.
