– It is a rotating member used to transmit power or motion. Transmission shafts and machine shafts are two different types of shafts used.
1) Transmission shafts:
These shafts are used to transmit power between source and machine. Transmission shafts are further classified as:
a) Line shafts: This transmission shaft is directly driven by a prime mover.
b) Counter shafts: This transmission shaft is a secondary shaft driven by main shaft through belt, chain or gear drive.
2) Machine shafts:
These shafts are short rotating shafts which form an integral part of machine. Machine shafts are further classified as:
a) Spindle shafts: Spindle is a rotating axis of machine which has a shaft.
b) Crankshaft: It is a mechanical part which is used to convert reciprocating motion into rotational motion. Crank shaft in reciprocating engine translates reciprocating motion of piston into rotational motion.
