Air shafts are core support mechanisms that slide inside of a core of a roll or material. They serve as a coupling mechanism between your material roll core and a power transmission device like a brake on an unwind or a drive on a rewind.
Leaf type air shafts, like CAC's COR-LOK series air shafts, utilize an expanding element under leaves mounted around the circumference of the air shaft which move outward to engage a roll core. When air pressure is applied to the leaf type air shaft the expanding element expands under the air shaft leaves which actuates the leaves.
Things to consider when utilizing leaf type air shaft technology:
Leaf type air shafts are an excellent choice for holding unwind and rewind rolls. When properly applied they will provide years of light weight, reliable service.
