Tidland GX Ultra Lightweight Air Shaft

GX Ultra-Lightweight Ergonomic Air Shaft

The Ultra-Lightweight GX Air Shaft is made with lightweight, high-strength aluminum and an innovative 2-piece expanding element. It delivers unmatched performance in many unwind and rewind applications. Operators’ backs will be saved as this shaft is one of the leading ergonomic solutions for converting applications and has helped many converters reduce or eliminate workers' compensation claims due to overexertion and heavy lifting.

GX shafts are available to suit a large variety of core sizes and are part of Tidland's complete line of ergonomic solutions for cnoverters, which includes the ever-popular Force5 Air Chucks and Ultrashaft Carbon Fiber Air Shafts.

Key Features:

  • Light weight construction reduces risk of operator injury from lifting
    Two-piece element design is resistant to punctures but can be changed easily, without removing the shaft from the machine
    Advanced external element design delivers superior roll build quality
    Isolated air circuits insure core is held even if one element fails minimizing downtime
    Positive retraction of elements to ensure cores slide on or off easily
