Empower Services / MOTOR SHAFT
Motor shaft / Motor shafts connect all the rotating components of a motor and transfer torque to the device or application that needs to rotate. Motor shafts are highly customized based on the end-use and environment in which the motor operates. Considerations include temperature, harsh environments, exposure to dust, and maintenance cycle expectations. In extreme cases, engineers design motors (and shafts) to be explosion-proof, or able to withstand and contain explosions which may occur because of hazardous environments. At Empower, these types of environmental or temperamental considerations are our bread and butter, we’ve made a name for ourselves producing highly custom and complex shafts for unique and niche end-markets.
Additionally, based on design requirements and applications, a motor shaft may be manufactured in a variety of alloys ranging from relatively inexpensive carbon steels to more expensive stainless steel or even nickel-based or cobalt-based superalloys. At Empower, we have extensive experience working with the most common and uncommon alloys and materials.
We manufacture shafts for all types of electric motors and end-markets, ranging from shafts just a few inches long that can be held in your hand to shafts over ten feet in length weighing thousands of pounds. We produce highly customized, engineered shafts and deliver with short lead times. Additionally, we produce moderate volumes of recurring part numbers on a regular basis.
At Empower, we live to serve. Our number one goal is to achieve success for procurement, sourcing, engineering, and planning professionals by delivering shafts and components on-time and on-spec through superior processes and unmatched customer service.
