The Convertech Leaf Air Shafts are recommended for use with thin walled cores and are well suited for thin wall or narrow cores. They can be used with thin-walled paper, steel, plastic, or fiber cores. Convertech’s Leaf Shafts are less expensive and lighter than our competitors’ leaf shafts.
Our Leaf Shafts are available in core diameters ranging from 1” to 6” and face lengths up to 150”. The Leaf Air Shaft can be designed in four styles: Small Diameter, Narrow Web, Wide Web, and Heavy Duty. Fixed leaves are available on all styles to assure uniform expansion.
The advanced integration of high-quality materials guarantees our Leaf Shafts grip firmly and expand precisely. Anodized aluminum leaves expand uniformly along the entire length of the Leaf Shaft, assuring a firm grip.
Our Leaf Style Air Shafts are custom designed to fit your specifications. When requesting a quote for the Leaf Shaft, we ask that you specify whether you need the bored, double journal, cantilevered or flanged version so that we can make sure your leaf shaft fits your needs and specifications.
As with all of our shafts, we guarantee that your Leaf Shafts will be designed and manufactured to the same tolerances as all of our industry’s leading shafts.
These shafts are typically available 2-3 weeks after ordering. Please contact our office for a more specific lead time.
