Our Lateral Motion Shafts are perfect for on-the-fly adjustments. Lateral adjustments can be made while the machine is running. The Lateral Motion Shaft is an economical alternative to more expensive web guide systems. They are the perfect shafts for printing presses, inspection machines, laminating stations, portable unwinds, and collators that support light loads and utilize webs of 30” and under.
The Lateral Motion Shafts are made with leaf or continuous lug expansion. They can be used for cantilever or flange mounted applications. These shafts are designed to make precision lateral adjustments with the adjustment knob. The adjustment knob moves the shaft in a 1” range of lateral movement to ensure alignment of rolls.
The Lateral Motion Shaft can be designed with diameters from 70mm to 10” and face lengths up to 30”.
Our Lateral Motion Shafts are custom designed to fit your specifications. When placing an order for the Lateral Motion Shaft, we ask that you specify whether you need a quote for the cantilevered or flanged version so that we can make sure your Lateral Motion Shaft fits your needs and specifications.
As with all of our shafts, we guarantee that your Lateral Motion Shaft will be designed and manufactured to the same tolerances as all of our industry’s leading shafts.
