Air Shafts Mechanically Clamping
WISTEC mechanical tension shaft for 3" cores, completely equipped with typical reel bearing for a machine in the paper industry; web speed > 2500 m/min
Winding shafts according to the mechanical tensioning principle guarantee a 100% centric roll support. The field of application is high web speeds and / or low runout tolerances. Thus, even sensitive materials, such as metal foils, can be wound precisely.
The shaft can be actuated as one option via a hexagon in the shaft journal. Thus all existing screwdriving systems can be used – preferably also pneumatic screwdrivers.
Operation via hexagon SW 19
Mechanical expansion shafts can also be used for other, very special applications. The use as a peeling mandrel in the production of PTFE films is shown.
The mechanical clamping of the PTFE block eliminates the need for the complex hammering in and subsequent pressing out of an oversized mandrel
WISTEC mechanical winding shafts are manufactured in three designs:
