The life expectancy and quality of a shaft depends on selecting the right design.
A flexible shaft is made by winding several layers of high quality spring-grade wire around a single mandrel. Each successive layer is wound onto the shaft at an opposing pitch angle. The quality of a shaft is determined by the wires used, their number, the diameter, and the annealing temperature.
Properties such as flexibility, torsional stiffness, power transmission, and performance under different speeds are influenced by the selection and adjustment of these fundamentals.
Meeting these basic prerequisites is the guarantee of long, consistent and reliable performance.
Our flexible shaft drain cleaning cables have several layers of spring-grade metal wires wound around the mandrel. The result is an effective shaft that can permit a full 180 degree off-set while maintaining high torque, and loads in both directions of rotation.
This set consists of the shaft, a protective sleeve, and the friction bearings to protect the sleeve and prevent dirt from interfering with the performance.
On this website, we offer the following lengths: 5 meter (16.4ft) , 10 meter (32.8 ft) ,15 meter (49.2 ft), 20 meters (65.6 ft) and 30 meter (98ft). If you need a specific length, mail us and we will assist.
Available shaft diameters are 6mm (1/4"), 8mm (5/16") ,10mm (3/8") & 12mm (1/2″).
3-5 days international delivery
Please note, that the 6mm flex shaft does not have a sleeve bearing.
The shafts length is measured at the minimum length. We provide the shafts slightly longer than the minimum so that clients can attach their different size tools to the shaft.
