    PBC Linear shafting is exclusively optimized to match high-performance bearing technology providing long life, low maintenance, and reliable linear motion. Linear shafting is available in three different standard materials- Carbon Steel, 400 Series Stainless Steel and Ceramic Coated Aluminum- for a wide range of applications. 300 Series Stainless Steel shafting is also available at request. All types of shafting are offered either as bar stock or pre-drilled, available in standard lengths or as cut-to-length shafts, and with customizable machined ends.

    Key Features Across All Variations:

    • Inch sizes of 3/16” to 4” and metric sizes of 4mm to 80mm diameters
    • Straight to within 0.001˝ to 0.002˝ per foot cumulative and 0.025 mm to 0.051 mm per meter cumulative
      • Except on 3/8″ (9.53 mm) diameters or smaller
    • End-joinable for longer travel lengths
    • End support blocks available
    • Cut to customer-specified length tolerances of:
      • 3/16″ to 1-1/4″ shaft = ± 0.0300″
      • 1-3/8″ to 2″ shaft = ± 0.060″
      • 2-1/2″ to 4″ shaft = ± 0.125″

    Linear Shaft Materials for Every Application:

    1060 Carbon Steel

    Our RC60+ Steel Shafting has a surface finish that is optimized to promote the self-lubricating performance of Frelon-lined bearings and retain lubrication for traditional linear ball bearings.

    • Well suited for general industrial environments
    • Surface finish: 8-12 RMS
    • Diameter tolerance: Class L

    Ceramic Coated Aluminum 

    Hardened up to RC70, ceramic coated aluminum linear shafting is designed to be used with Simplicity FrelonGOLD® lined bearings in contaminated applications.

    Ideal for use with environments containing:

    • Weld Splatter
    • Paints
    • Contaminants

    400 Series Stainless Steel 

    440 Stainless Steel Shafting is case hardened to a minimum of RC50 and is suitable for use with Simplicity FrelonGOLD® lined bearings and linear ball bearings.

    • Diameter tolerance is Class L
    • Surface finish 8-12 RMS
    • Good for harsh environments

    300 Series Stainless Steel 

    300 Series Stainless Steel shafting is extremely corrosive resistant and nonmagnetic and is usable only with non-rolling element bearings like Simplicity plain bearings.
