Note: Due to a shortage of long pieces, the maximum length you can order has been temporarily reduced to 900mm. Once we replenish our stock, the maximum length will return to 2000mm.
This shaft is made of 1045 carbon steel, precision ground to exactly 17mm, and chrome plated. The production process is the same as linear shaft - except the shaft is not case hardened, allowing you to easily drill and machine the shaft. 17mm is one of the 'core' shaft diameters in our mechanical product line - in addition to 8mm, 12mm and 25mm. 17mm is a great diameter for higher power belt transmissions (GT5), #40 chain systems. We also sell the 17mm shaft with a full length keyway.
If you need to connect this shaft to a motor or another device with a shaft, you can use a shaft coupler:
|Image||Part Number||Price||Inner Diameter||Material||Coupling Rated Torque||Coupling Rated Speed|
|TRM4322_0||$6.85||17 mm||Aluminum||611.8 kg·cm||4000 RPM|
|TRM4326_0||$14.80||17 mm||Aluminum||3.3 Mg·cm||4000 RPM|
If you're using a rotary system that requires a lot of torque, you may be interested in pulleys and sprockets. By using a two pulleys or sprockets of different sizes, you can increase the gear ratio of the system. Pulleys and sprockets can also be used to transmit rotation over a long distance. For more guidance on building a transmission system, visit our Rotary Motion Primer. Here is a list of our 17mm bore pulleys and sprockets:

Systems with heavy loads or pulley/sprocket assemblies often put a lot of sideways strain on the shaft. In such a system, you can use rotary bearings to protect and support the shaft:
