Precision Machined Shafts

Minic Precision Inc. 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 Minic Precision Inc. are available with diameters ranging from 0.010 to 1.00 inches and lengths ranging from 0.010 to 10.00 inches. Precision ground shafts, steering shafts, welded shafts, motor shafts, precision long turned shafts, linkages and component assemblies are some examples of the types of shafts we can produce. Our shafts have tight tolerance values of ± 0.0001 inches and are manufactured from materials of the finest quality.

The processes that are employed at Minic Precision Inc. to machine shafts are CNC Swiss turning, CNC milling, cold heading and CAM Swiss automatic lathing. Cold heading is a metal forming process in which high pressure is applied, and is a common method of machining cylindrical parts.

Precise dimensions are achieved through the use of our Tornos Swiss Automatic Screw Machines, Bechler Swiss Automatic Screw Machines and Citizen CNC Swiss Turning Machines. All of these machines are computer automated, which ensures rapid prototyping and development of parts in short lead times. Swiss automatic screw machines use cross tools that facilitate the intricate multidirectional cutting process. CNC Swiss turning machines use dies instead of cutting tools which are capable of cutting finer details in the shafts.

Our custom machined shafts are used in motors, pumps, valves, hydraulics and medical equipment. Some of the secondary services we offer include broaching, grinding, heat treating, plating, tapping, thread rolling and tumbling.
