|Carbon Fiber Shaft Housing||Lightweight||Fewer shaft handling injuries lower worker’s compensation expenses and non-productive time.
Meet regulations for single person lifting.
|Better ergonomics||No maintenance or jamming, no contamination.|
|Less deflection||Reduced vibration and less roll bounce.
Heavier roll weights.
|Higher critical speed||More throughput.|
|Protective Outer Sleeve||Protects carbon fiber
shaft from abrasion.
|Longer carbon fiber
|Proprietary Bladder||Stretches less than traditional
|Dependable lug collapse ensures
consistent, easy removal of shaft from spent cores
|More resistant to
heat, punction, and abrasion.
|Far less bladder failure
and minimized maintenance.
|Springless Lugs||No springs to break and puncture bladder.||Longer bladder life; less maintenance|
|Diamond pattern gripping surface with large surface area||Better grip with less
|Custom Journals||No press fit facilitates
though rare, is quick and easy.
Air shafts are available in steel, aluminum, or lightweight carbon fiber; suitable for all types of winding applications.
Double E safety chucks make shaft loading simple. Flange or foot-mounted models available with turned square, square, circular, or triangular shaft engagements.
Lightweight air bladder chucks mount on a core shaft to grip cores with various diameters. Connecting air hose allows two chucks to inflate simultaneously.
