Tracey Gear & Precision Shaft is a shaft manufacturer, producing quality precision shafts in different sizes for a broad range of industries and their respective applications. We use cutting-edge precision shaft technology to develop key components that will enhance your bottom line and boost project success.

Precision Shaft by Expert Manufacturers

A precision shaft is a rod-shaped device that provides linear motion in various applications. These components are found in machines where linear motion is critical, and precision is essential. Different types of precision shafts include: tapped, threaded, solid, and hollowed.

These components must be manufactured to have the highest degree of accuracy, high-quality surface, high degree of hardness, and concentricity. These elements combined ensure that your equipment moves smoothly and accurately.

Applications of a Precision Shaft in Demanding Sectors

Numerous industries rely on precision shafts due to their versatility. Most of their equipment and machines are equipped with these components to perform at their very best, ensuring you operate better working equipment. These industries include manufacturing, food and beverage, medical, aerospace, packaging, and more.

Typical applications of a precision shaft:

  • Motors
  • Gearboxes
  • Mill shafts
  • Machine tools
  • Embossing machines
  • Food technology
  • Positioning systems

Importance of Precision Shafts

Precision shafts are common in linear motion systems as it improves the overall linear motion performance. Precision shafts have tight dimensional tolerances as well as circularity and concentricity tolerances. Precision shafts will also typically require high quality surface finishes. The tight tolerances and surface finishes ensure proper contact with bearings or any other part mounted on the shaft.

It is imperative a precision shaft be manufactured properly. Shafts that do not hold the tight tolerances required will experience runout issues that will adversely affect the quality of the machinery.

Custom Solutions for Every Application

Our clients have varying needs, requiring a custom-made precision shaft with their specifications and requirements. It highly depends on their projects or intended purpose, which is why we provide custom services to industries requiring it.

With our years of being a precision shaft manufacturer, we have an extensive understanding of the tight tolerances and other dynamics associated with designing the component. We utilize state-of-the-art precision shaft technologies, such as our CNC lathes and CNC Grinders, to create products with high levels of quality to improve linear motion.

Different materials are also available, such as the following:
