Big and Heavy. If this describes your requirements for winding and unwinding, then you should check out the benefits of using this amazing air shaft instead of using multiple expensive reel spool mandrels in your application. The Series 860 is a heavy-duty air shaft designed for maximum reliability and performance in demanding mill environments, reducing the cost and storage of expensive reel spool mandrels. This shaft utilizes our innovative two-piece expanding elements, with a spiral design that provides 360º of radial grip and intrinsically equalized load distribution.

The advanced features of these shafts include a two-piece expanding element design, nonmetallic retraction springs, durable poly bladder, and a fail-safe multi-circuit air system, with check valves to ensure that a loss of air in one element will not affect the expansion and performance of the other elements. Its ergonomic design also provides increased safety by eliminating the need for dangerous locking collars or wrenches.

The Series 860 Mill Shaft is designed for heavy-duty in ID cores up to 610 mm (24 inches). The spiral strip design of this shaft minimizes core deformation and eliminates critical speed and vibration issues that prevent successful turn-ups and splices.
