Custom Linear Shaft Supports
Linear shaft supports are positioned either at the end of a linear shaft to provide system load support. Also known as shaft support blocks, they prevent rotational and axial movement of mounted shafts to provide the precise alignment required for smooth carriage operation.
Standard shaft supports work with most linear bushings and bearings, but they don’t provide a solution for every application. Custom linear shaft supports provide a solution in the size and material you need and are ideal for any situation involving unique:
- Bore sizes and shapes
- Shaft heights
- Weight loads
Custom Shaft Supports with an Easy-Access™ DesignWe offer custom linear shaft supports that can be custom-tailored to your specific needs. The removable-top design of our shaft supports allows users to easily remove the shaft, linear bearings, and/or carriage without upsetting the position of the shaft support or causing surface damage.
This unique design saves significant time by eliminating the need to reset the critical parallel alignments required in many linear shaft systems. Our Easy-Access™ shaft support design is also ideal for applications where there is not enough space available to axially remove the shaft from the supports.
All our custom shaft supports are machined from lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and have a smooth machined surface. Request a quote on the custom shaft supports you need or contact Ondrives.US to discuss your application requirements. See below for a full list of customizable options.
The Ondrives.US Advantage for Linear Shaft SupportsOndrives.US linear shaft supports are available in standard height or low-profile footprints and are designed for installation on parallel or perpendicular surfaces. Our standard and custom shaft supports are RoHS compliant and available in inch or metric sizes.
Specify your custom linear shaft supports based on the following:
- Bore size
- Shaft center height
- Weight load
- Bore shape (or supply a drawing or sketch)
- Black anodized aluminum or gray anodized aluminum construction available
- Black oxide alloy steel fasteners
- Top-loading design maintains alignment during shaft and bearing service/maintenance
- Stringently exacted tolerance adherence
