About Aluminum shaft

An aluminum shaft typically refers to a cylindrical rod or tube made from light and corrosion-resistant aluminum. Aluminum shafts are commonly used in various applications across industries due to the favorable properties of aluminum.

HM-Your Exclusive Customization Expert

At HM, we can customize length, thickness and shaft ends according to your detailed requirements of aluminum shaft. What’s more, we have professional techniques and advanced machines to give your aluminum shaft different surface treatments including sandblast anodize, liquid coating, powder coating, decal application, laser carving and so on.

If you require valve repairs, these can be performed by mounting them on the front side of the shaft body, radially on the shaft body, or even axially in the shaft journal.

Many Kinds to Satisfy Your Different Applications

Aluminum shafts can come in various types and forms, depending on the specific application requirements and the manufacturing processes involved. Here are some common types of aluminum shafts:

  • Solid Aluminum Shafts

    Tapered shafts have a gradually changing diameter along their length. This design is used in specific applications where different levels of strength or flexibility are required at different points along the shaft.

Reasons for Choosing Aluminum Shaft

Below are aluminum shafts’ features and characteristics that make them suitable for many different applications. 

  1. Lightweight: Aluminum shaft has lighter weight than other materials like steel. Therefore, they are suitable in applications where weight reduction is critical, such as aerospace or sports equipment.
  2. Corrosion Resistance: Aluminum shafts have excellent corrosion resistance, so you can use them for both outdoor and marine applications.
  3. High Strength-to-Weight Ratio: Compared with steel, aluminum has an outstanding feature of strength-to-weight ratio. This makes aluminum shafts strong enough for many applications while still being lightweight.
  4. Conductivity: As an excellent conductor of electricity, aluminum shaft is useful in applications where electrical conductivity is important, such as in certain types of equipment and machinery.
  5. Machinability: Aluminum shaft is relatively easy to machine and form, which makes the production of complex shapes and designs. This makes it versatile for manufacturing processes.
  6. Recyclability: Aluminum shaft has a long serving life and can be recycled. The recycling process requires much less energy than primary aluminum production.
  7. Cost-Effective:Aluminum is often more cost-effective than other metals such as titanium. This makes aluminum shafts an economical choice for various applications.
  8. Non-Magnetic:An aluminum shaft is not magnetic and is suitable for applications where avoiding magnetic interference is essential.

Aluminium Shafts Production

The most common process used to manufacture wholesale aluminum shafts is via CNC turning. Our CNC machines clamp bars or aluminum billets and rotate them. While rotating, specialized tools use cutting, drilling, and milling to create the planned shape of the end product. 

We have over 100 sets of CNC machines with precision capabilities that achieve tolerances of 0.002um. Furthermore, HM has 3-, 4-, and 5-axis CNC machines, meaning that no matter the complexity of the design, we will deliver your perfect aluminum shaft. 

If necessary, we will assemble separate pieces into the whole shaft, and apply any surface treatment you request. Finally, our products undergo strict testing and certification to guarantee the quality of your shafts.
