Long Shaft Machining Processes

Jerpbak-Bayless’ capabilities include several processes that long shaft manufacturing requires. These include:

CNC Turning

Our 5-axis CNC turning equipment enables us to machine several features simultaneously. Through the use of additional axes of movement, our customers benefit from tighter tolerances from feature to feature, lowering machining costs for complex components. This allows us to complete finished parts using rough stock with fewer steps involved. Additionally, you can benefit from a much lower risk of inconsistencies with more efficient processes.

Based on your CNC turning needs, we offer the following specifications:

  • Unlimited shaft length
  • Tolerances up to +/-.0005″
