Goldenrod’s Model 1260-LDS Side-Lay air shaft features lateral adjust (+/- 25mm), allowing machine operators to make alignment adjustments on the fly. This design is available for cantilevered installations handling web widths up to 36″. Excellent for unwind stations on label presses, packaging machines and laminating machines. Safely operated ergonomic knob facilitates side to side adjustment while the machine is running. The air shaft can be inflated with an air gun or remotely from a switch. Several of Goldenrod’s shaft options are available with these shafts including centering, core positioners, roller bearings, and ruler guides.
