Pneumatic Expanding Chucks
Pneumatic expansion chucks are often used as adapters. Mounted on expansion shafts or support tubes, they ensure secure clamping of the sleeves.
Two WISTEC expansion chucks as adapters allow the reception of 150 mm cores on a 76 mm pneumatic winding shaft.
By connecting two or more chucks in series and operating them by means of a valve, a fast core change is achieved.

Depending on the application, almost all diameters and designs are available.
Pneumatic adapter chucks can be manufactured in all desired lengths according to customer specifications. For larger lengths we recommend two counter-rotating centering clamping flanges. For larger core inner diameters there are hardly any technological limits by using clamping bars, means slats.
