It’s an axle shaft kind of day.

It's an axle shaft kind of day.

While we’re always machining multiple products at a time, today feels like an axle shaft kind of day. We batch all order’s in the previous month, and start machining those orders in the first week of the following month. This week is that week, and it’s going to be busy.

Our most popular shafts can be found at http://www.spidertrax.com/products/Axle-Shafts , but it’s worth noting we make many applications beyond this. This month includes some of those, like 40 splined full floater axle shafts. If you’re after an axle shaft not shown in our store, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.

Pictured here is one of our 35 spline 300M axle shafts, which will be turned down and splined prior to heat-treat. After which, it will be normalized, snap tempered, cryogenically treated, and double tempered to the strictest SAE standards. All of this takes time, but it’s well worth the investment if you’re racing against the best of the best. That’s our story for the day, back to work we go.
