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.
