Force5 Lightweight Air Chucks Overview

Incredibly durable, the Force5 air chuck offers a lightweight alternative to aluminum chucks at the lowest cost in the market. The Force5 can also take abuse in the toughest environments. The specially engineered polymer expanding element is not only designed for high durability in extreme conditions, but it retains its shape over time for ease of insertion and removal. The Force5 is the lightest weight air chuck available and has the greatest gripping force with improved gripping during e-stop & high-torque applications. Paired with Tidland’s Ultrashaft Carbon Fiber Air Shafts or mandrels, you can safely change rolls from 76 mm (3 in) to 152 mm (6 in) ID cores.

*Based on ±5 psi working pressure, core tolerance of 0.05″, and a static coefficient of friction between the fiber core and tire of 0.64.
