Goldenrod offers a variety of lightweight non-expanding carbon mandrels for use with expanding adapters. Using a more manageable 3″ or smaller diameter mandrel with our 1440-RC tire chucks is a convenient alternative to manually handling larger diameter shafts.
The 1290-NXC is a non-expanding carbon mandrel with either a metal sleeve or if required by weight restrictions, a hard coat. The model is offered in medium/heavy duty configurations. The 1263-NXC is our patented 3″ carbon pultrusion without any expanding components, and is an excellent low cost option for medium duty applications.
