Pneumatic Shafts with LUGS ( Type K )

Pneumatic shafts with lugs are equipped with a central hose. Thanks to the optimization of the parameters, tube sheet strength, and pylon material it is possible to manufacture light pneumatic shafts with a high torque capacity.

Within the range of 70 mm and 76 mm inside diameters, we are able to offer special fabrication all-purpose shafts for the entire diameter range.
