Some of the qualities that should be present in materials for shafts are as follows:

1. The material should have a high index of strength.
2. Also it should have a high level of machinability.
3. The material should possess a low notch sensitivity factor.
4. The material must also have wear resistant properties.
5. Good heat treatment properties should also be present.

The common material used to creates shafts of high strengths an alloy of steel like nickel is used.
The shafts are manufactured by hot rolling processes and then the shaft is finished using drawing or grinding processes.
