Shaft Adapters – A Systems Approach
Combine shaft adapters with pneumatic and mechanical chucks, which are designed for high speed printing, laminating, and sheeting applications on unwind flying or zero speed splicers (and other shaftless unwind and rewind applications.)
Converters can dramatically improve splice reliability, increase operating speeds and save time and money with repeated use of cores without damage to core ends, which can lead to excessive dust. Wide-footprint shaft lugs provide a consistent grip on the core, without damaging the inside. Ease of removal is maintained with pneumatic and mechanical retraction of lugs, ensuring that the lugs never stick to the core.
Convertech’s Expanding Shaft and Chuck Adapters are available with mechanical or pneumatic expansions, set screw or clamp collar designs, and in practically any configuration up to a 16″ diameter and 150″ face length. Combine Convertech’s Mechanical or Pneumatic/Mechanical Chucks with our expanding adapters and you’ll be able to use more core diameters, without having to purchase additional shafts and chucks.
- Diameters up to 16"
- Face lengths up to 150"
More about the Convertech Shaft Adapters – Air and Mechanical
Superior and easy to use, Convertech's core chuck and adapter system reduces the number of costly and heavy shaft & chucks required for many operations. At a fraction of the cost and weight of a shaft or chuck, each adapter can expand the usability of your current setup without a time-consuming changeover.
Convertech's core chuck and adapter combination provides a "system's" approach which saves time and money. Convertech's adapters are available for practically any configuration. Using a chuck as the system base, each adapter is custom designed to your specifications. Adapters fit securely over your chuck to expand its core size capacity. Chuck adapters offer quick resets and a less expensive solution with superior flexibility.
High-quality aluminum or steel lugs provide perfectly uniform expansion and a firm yet non-damaging grip on the core. By reducing core damage and easing loading and unloading, Convertech's adapters ensure more uptime and less damage to cores and rolls. Adapters are available in many diameters and a variety of styles.
Downtime is reduced significantly by using a Convertech chuck and adapter system. Typical changeovers can reduce productivity and expose operators to workplace injuries. A Convertech chuck and adapter system is much more versatile.
