Drive Shaft Manufacturing and Repair
Our driveline department integrates certified machine welding with state-of the art equipment to provide the highest quality drive shafts.
Our OE drive shaft manufacturing including assistance during the R&D phase all the way through production for a range of mid-level OEM with minimal lead times.
We can assist you in trouble shooting your off-road and racing application as modifications and increased torque/horsepower require upgrades to your existing driveline.
We can also repair or replace your existing drive shaft as needed.
Drive Shaft Balancing
A drive shaft in a state of unbalance will vibrate as an indirect effect of the centrifugal force created as the heavier side of the shaft makes a revolution. A dynamic balancing machine is used to rotate the shaft and sensors detect the points of unbalance by its specific sine frequency (basically a sound wave). An unbalanced drive shaft is then balanced by attaching a counter weight opposite from the heavier side.
A shaft is balanced as slow as possible for safety purposes, but as fast as necessary for its intended application. A perfectly true balance is not possible. Reducing an unbalance to acceptable tolerances in order to negate vibration is the goal.
