Two week lead time for standard aluminum shafts!
Double E is able to ship standard aluminum DG shafts as part of its Fast Lane manufacturing program.
A standard aluminum DG is defined as follows:
Standard strength aluminum body
Body Length < 100”
Customer End of Journal < 12”
6” or 8” Insertions
Standard steel and carbon fiber shafts will soon become available with Fast Lane delivery.
Competing air shaft bladders are made with a common form of neoprene rubber which requires frequent replacement due to stretching and abrasion.
Double E air shaft lugs are available with a “diamond-grip” surface in steel, aluminum, or hard rubber, and have been field-proven to provide the maximum gripping performance possible.
Easy-maintenance journal connection - secured with flathead screws, a close tolerance fit, and deep insertion. Competing air shafts (roll shafts) often use a tapered press fit, which requires a hydraulic press and heat to remove the journals. Bladder replacement on these shafts can take hours while the bladder of a Dyna–Grip air shaft can be changed in just a few minutes.
Replace heavy steel core shafts without sacrificing strength or stiffness. Carbon fiber core shafts are typically half the weight of their steel counterparts.

Carbon fiber core shafts minimize shaft weight without sacrificing strength or stiffness; perfect for unwind and rewind converting applications.
UC-3000 Air-Inflated Bladder Core Chucks
Lightweight air bladder chucks mount on a core shaft to grip cores with various diameters. Connecting air hose allows two chucks to inflate simultaneously.
Safety Chucks - Standard Sliding Models
Double E safety chucks make shaft loading simple. Flange or foot-mounted models available with turned square, square, circular, or triangular shaft engagements.
Pneumatic/Mechanical & Mechanical Core Shafts
Mechanical core shafts for high speed and/or heavyweight converting and printing applications.
