Propeller Shaft Forgings

Applications of Propeller Shaft Forgings

Propeller shafts play a crucial role in the transmission of power, allowing boats to move through the water. Trends in marine propulsion have seen 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 components making up the propulsion line include, tail shaft, intermediate shaft, thrust shaft, coupling, gearbox, bearing and engine components. Here at Somers Forge we can provide all your forged requirements for theses items, as well as, stub shafts, drive shafts and rudder stocks.
