Properties of hardened ground shafts materials
Corrosion resistant steels
Hardened ground shafts made from X46 or X90 are available for application in e.g. the medical or food industries.
Hard chrome coating
Hard chromed hardened ground shafts are very suitable when high wear resistance and corrosion resistance are required.
Other coatings such as Zn-Fr or special chrome coatings are available on demand.
Cross section hardened ground shafts
|Cross-section TS shaft with hardened layer|
|Cross-section TS shaft with hardened layer and chrome|
|Cross-section TT hollow shaft with hardened layer|
Different materials, properties, dimensions and tolerances
Per request THN can also supply other materials such as 100Cr6, 42CrMo4 or 50CrV4. In consultation, it is also possible to supply special coatings, dimensions or tolerances. This is usually possible with ready-machined shafts or, if there is sufficient demand, in trade length of approx. 6 meters. THN also has a number of specials in stock. Contact us for the possibilities.
Article code and materials
The composition of the article code for the type, material and size is as follows:
[Type] [Diameter] [Tolerance] [Material] [Extra] X [Length]
|Type||TS Solid shafts|
TT Hollow shafts
TD Radially pre-drilled shafts
|Diameter||Nominal diameter in mm or inch|
|Extra||Addition for extra features such as a chrome layer|
|Length||Length of the shaft in mm|
The code of a hardened ground solid shaft in diameter 25mm with an h7 tolerance and a chrome layer in the material CF53 with a length of 1244mm is:
TS 025.00 h7 CF53 CHROME X 1244
Product finder shafts
Find the right shaft for your applications with the online product finder. Enter the values you need, choose a type of shaft and the product finder will calculate the maximum deflection of the shaft. This way you immediately know which axles are most suitable for your application.
Materials and shaft properties
|Code||Description||Metric / Inch||Dimension|
|TS||Solid shafts||Metric||3 to 120mm|
|TT||Hollow shafts||Metric||12 to 80mm|
|TS||Solid shafts||Inch||1/8" to 3"|
|TD||Radially pre-drilled shafts||Metric||12 to 50mm|
|Steel type||Surface hardness HRC||Tensile strength N/mm2||Surface roughness Ra max.|
|CF53 (1.1213)||min. 59||≥ 610||0,30|
|C60 (1.0601)||min. 59||≥ 650||0,30|
|X46Cr13 (1.4034)||min. 52||≥ 650||0,30|
|X90CrMoV18 (1.4112)||min. 54||≥ 750||0,30|
CF53 is the standard material for solid shafts. For hollow shafts C60 will be used.
