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.
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.
Precise dimensions are achieved through the use of our Tornos Swiss Automatic Screw Machines, Tornos and Citizen Swiss CNC Turning Machines. Also, we use Statistical Process Control (SPC) throughout the manufacturing process. All custom machines parts are available in diameters ranging from 0.005 to 1.00 inches and lengths ranging from 0.005 to 10.00 inches. Other specifications include tight tolerance values of ± 0.0001 inches and surface finishes to 16 micro.
