Integrated Core Chuck and Adapter System Dramatically Reduces Costs and Downtime
WHARTON, New Jersey - September 20, 2005 - Superior and easy to use Convertech's core chuck and adapter system reduces the number of costly and heavy chucks required for many operations. At 25% of the cost and weight of a chuck each adapter can expand the usability of your current chucks without a time-consuming changeover.
Convertech's core chuck and adapter combination provides a "system's" approach which saves time and money. Convertech's adapters are available for practically any Convertech chuck configuration. Using a chuck as the system base, each adapter is custom designed to your specifications.
Adapters fit securely over your chuck to expand its core size capacity. Chuck adapters offer quick resets and a less expensive solution with superior flexibility.
High-quality aluminum or steel lugs provide perfectly uniform expansion and a firm yet non-damaging grip on the core. By reducing core damage and easing loading and unloading, Convertech's adapters ensure more uptime and less damage to cores and rolls. Adapters are available in diameters up to 16" in a variety of styles.
Downtime is reduced significantly by using a Convertech chuck and adapter system. Typical chuck changes can reduce productivity and expose operators to workplace injuries. A Convertech chuck and adapter system is much more versatile. Using a single chuck as the "center" of an adapter system, an operator can change the adapter in less than half the time it would normally take to change a traditional chuck. Because adapters are lighter than their chuck counterparts operators can lift and manipulate adapters with less risk of workplace injury.
Fast delivery time doesn't mean low-quality. Each chuck adapter is manufactured with the highest quality material and is custom engineered to your chuck specifications. With a streamlined production process and a simplified adapter design, Convertech can ensure its exceptionally fast delivery time.
