  • The perfect combination of durability and high-speed operation in a lightweight, ergonomic air shaft is what operators will find in Tidland’s Ultrashaft Carbon Fiber Air Shafts. The Ultrashaft is available with custom options: sleeved with aluminum, sleeved with steel or painted black (no sleeve).
  • 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. Contact a Tidland Customer Service Representative for a full shaft analysis for your specific application.
