Bearing shaft quality is primarily used for supporting oscillating, sliding, rotating shaft, wheel, or pivot. Bearings are produced with the right internal diameter (ID) dimensions.
Our stainless steel round bar stock and bearing shaft quality bar are measured and processed exactly so as to properly meet the required tolerances under the dimension and allow for a slip fit.
This type of finish gives the centerless ground bar or round bars a smoother finish, which is great if you want something that can better support shafts that you may be used for your own project or task.
The non-galling and non-seizing properties that bearing shaft rounds possess make them ideal for moving structured parts and components. Bearing shaft quality products are usually made from austenitic stainless steel which allows them to be highly applicable in environments desiring low magnetic permeability.
This type of metallic, non-magnetic allotrope of iron is mostly used for shafts as well as aircraft structure parts, screws, bolts, gears, valve trim, valves, screw machine products, and machine parts.
Bearing shaft rounds are usually made out of stainless steel as these parts require grinding, machining, and polishing where excellent resistance to corrosion is also required.
Stainless steel exhibits non-galling and non-seizing properties that are ideal for moving components and parts as most austenitic steels are used in an environment that requires low magnetic permeability.
