Most companies in the metal foil/strip winding industry have seen the cost and quality benefits of replacing their old hydraulic shafts with Goldenrod Pneumatic shafts and adapters. Due to our flexible Multiple Bladder design, we can:
– Make an Adapter to fit your existing base shaft.
– Make a Shaft completely from one piece of solid steel to handle very high roll weights, even in a cantilevered condition.
– Customize the number of gripping ledges to handle the high torque.
– Add Core-Centering ledges to improve roll quality and reduce scrap.
And best of all, repairs can take minutes instead of days or even weeks with hydraulic shafts.
