Broken Shaft Replacement

Broken Shaft Replacement

A broken shaft is rarely a simple fix. This often shuts down not just one machine but every machine that runs on the same line. This makes it a very costly repair from production loss. Cliff Industrial can make a shaft replacement in no time, like the one below. The original part came through our door and our experienced machinists were able to clean and enlarge the shaft through additive welding (Fig. 1 and 2), and finish the job by turning the shaft down with key way.

Shaft rebuilding has changed over the years and we can often repair a shaft without having to replace it. The rebuilding process presents special challenges, such as maintaining the proper alignment of the shaft or restoring it to its proper dimensions and finish.

Worn or damaged shafts are common when working with machinery and unfortunately a failed shaft will shut down any machine. If it continues to happen to the same shaft, let us know; Cliff may have some ideas of design changes or materials to solve that problem. We all know shafts typically fail when that machine is most needed for an urgent job. We stock a number of shaft diameters and materials to help get you back up and running.
