The open die forging process for our shafts enables us to orient the grain flow all along the geometry, which is essential for achieving the high mechanical properties expected of a product of this type. Our forging capabilities provide significant cost and material savings when compared to machined bar step shafts.Request a quote
The process begins with an ingot cut that is forged to the major outside diameter of the Step Flange, then with a forging tool the next step section is marked and worked to decrease the outside diameter to the desired size (step down). The step down process can be repeated as many times as needed.

Our custom made Forged Step Shafts provide significant material cost savings compared to machined bar step shafts.
With our added value services such as heat treatment, machining and testing, we can supply steps shafts in rough forging condition, rough machined or fully machined per your specifications.
