Step Downs & Special Shapes
Step shafts offer endless possibilities in configurations, as shown in the photos. Machining the step down from solid bar causes loss of excess material and cost of material turned into chips. Also machining in this manner causes the grain flow to be exposed, making the material susceptible to metal fatigue. Forging produces a contoured grain flow within the step down, yielding greater impact and directional strength. Machining time will be greatly reduced freeing up production time and maintaining workflow. Parts from 5lbs to 20,000# can be manufactured from tooling in stock.
