Chrome Plated Shafts

SHEFFIELD™ REDI-CHROME – Chrome Plated Shafting

Sheffield Redi-Chrome is a precision finished chrome plated shaft, minus the induction hardened surface of the shaft substrate. The outer surface of the shaft has high hardness chrome, the sub-surface of the shaft, (under the chrome), is not hardened. It is an excellent extended service chromed shaft material for hydraulic and pneumatic applications when a conventional approach to machining is available.

"Our most machinable hard chrome plated shaft."

General machining data and other cutting information is available. Please contact our offices for further details.
