All steel shafts are the same.
The most commonly used material for linear motion bearing shafts is moderate
high carbon steel. Engineers should work with suppliers to verify that the carbon
content of the steel used, straightness, roundness, surface finish, hardness, and case
depth are adequate for bearing application. Contaminants in the steel can result in
premature failures due to the potentially high Hertzian contact stresses of bearing
