Marine Shafts Explained

There has been an increase in the use of heightened shaft power and also in the reduction of noise, which has led to a higher importance being placed on more efficient propulsion shafting design. The mechanism required to generate thrust for a boat or ship to move through water is called β€˜marine propulsion’.  It is made up of the following main parts: main engine, gearbox, marine shaft and propeller. Here at Somers Forge, we provide marine shaft forging, propeller shaft forging and provide forging for many other parts for propulsion shafts.
