  • Further enhancements to the shaft include high-torque lugs and non-metallic retraction springs to virtually eliminate bladder failures giving you an ultra-reliable, ultra-durable, ultra-high speed, Ultrashaft.

Note: Example shows results for a lug shaft for a 70” wide web. Assumes (2) 2” diameter steel journals x 6” long; face length of web width + 4” bearing centers of face length + 6”. Maximum operating speed is at core, assumes 0.5” wall core. Other configurations will yield different results.
