When it comes to Linear Motion in mechanics, ensuring a smooth shaft is vital, since rough or rusted shafts can greatly reduce the efficiency of a shaft as a linear guide rail. This is what makes our 1m lengths of Chromed Linear Shafting with 8mm Diameter so effective, as the chroming of the shafts harden the metal and make them more corrosion-resistant. This translates to higher durability and a longer lifespan, with long-lasting smoothness and an impressively low friction coefficient.

Used for 3D Printers, CNC Machines and other mechanical applications requiring linear motion along a shaft, the smoothness of these chromed shafts offer consistent accuracy, as there are no bumps or rust spots to counteract the free movement of the bearings that travel vertically or horizontally along the shaft. Additionally, the smoothness also offers the extra benefit of being extra-silent, as it’s usually the friction of the bearings and the shaft that causes the noise.


Cutting/Shipping Policy:

  • For Linear Shafts, threaded rods and extrusions, the maximum length we can ship is 1 meter.
  • Should you require your rod/extrusion cut down to size, we offer a maximum of two cuts per meter, all done within a ±1mm tolerance (stipulate the lengths required in the comments section when checking out).
  • Bear in mind that the width of the cutting blade is 5mm, so each cut will essentially reduce the overall length by 5mm. E.g. One cut will result in two parts with a total length of 995mm, whereas two cuts will result three parts with a total length of 990mm.

Typical Applications for 1m Long 8mm Diameter Chromed Linear Shafting:

This Chromed Linear Shafting is stocked primarily for 3D Printing, but can be used for almost any mechanical application that relies on linear motion or linear guide rails. It is treated with a chrome surface of between 0.4 and 1 micron, which hardens the shafting and makes it more resistant to corrosion and similar types of damage or wear and tear. This in turn makes it more reliable and less noisy than typical steel shafting, offering greater precision for parts that travel along it.
