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. 

Aluminium Shafts Application

HM wholesale CNC custom aluminum shafts are used for all sorts of tasks. Most commonly they are used in aerospace, automotive, and industrial applications. Generally, aluminum shafts rotate and transmit power from a driving device, such as a motor or engine, through a machine. 

Shafts power gears, pulleys, and sprockets to transmit rotary motion via mating gears, belts, and chains. For instance, bicycles, cars, planes, and machines.

What are the Advantages of Using Aluminium Shaft Instead of Steel Shaft?

There are 2 main advantages of using an aluminium shaft instead of a steel shaft.

  1. Extreme Weight Reduction

The first one of their main advantages is the aluminium shaft has an extreme weight reduction.

Actually, the aluminium shaft is lighter than the steel shaft.

When you are using an aluminium shaft, it will result in a weight reduction of about 10 lbs. to 20 lbs.

The weight reduction of the aluminium shaft is especially a benefit for your engine.

Your engine will have a less work to do when the shaft that must be rotated is lightweight.

  1. Excellent Weather Resistance

The second and also the biggest advantage of the aluminium shaft is their excellent weather resistance.

The aluminium shaft has a better ability to withstand bad weather conditions compared to the steel shaft.

As an example, the aluminium shaft is commonly used by people who live in snowy areas. They used them since they are resistant to rust, unlike the steel shaft.
