NILSS (Inch) Stainless Steel Linear Shafting


Inch stainless steel shafting is case hardened to RC 50 Plus and suitable for use with FrelonGOLD® lined bearings and linear ball bearings. LEE Linear provides the most uniform surface hardness and depth of hardness across a range of sizes, offering increased performance. In addition, all inch 440 stainless steel shafting is ground and polished within a consistent surface finish range resulting in a higher level of predictable performance. This surface finish results in more evenly distributed loading, decreased amount of wear and particulate generation, and reduced drag. Finally, the undeviating dimensional tolerances along the entire length of the inch steel shafting maximize consistent bearing operation.

  • Solid round shafting is available in inch sizes from 3/16” thru 3”, and lengths to 17 feet
  • Pre-drilled shafting for use with support rails is available ½” thru 2”, and lengths to 17 feet
  • Case hardened 440 stainless steel material for enhanced corrosion resistance
  • Diameter tolerance is Class L
  • Surface finish 8-12 RMS
  • Standard cut to customer-specified length tolerances of:
    • 3/16" – 1-1/4" shaft = ± 0.0300"
    • 1-3/8" – 2" shaft = ± 0.060"
    • 2-1/2" – 4" shaft = ± 0.125"
  • Custom end machining available upon request
