Leaf Shafts Retain Thin Wall Core Shape

Continuous leaf surface on leaf shafts support thin wall cores during winding applications.

(Nashua, NH) - Leaf air shafts from NimCor provide the ideal support for thin wall cores of 1½ in. or larger to keep cores from deforming during winding and are well suited for winding narrow slit rolls. Trapper leaf shaft models are also available for coreless winding with the lead end of a web secured under a leaf's edge to begin the winding process. Likewise, when winding is completed, the web is easily released from the shaft when the leaves are retracted. Leaf air shafts from NimCor are available in steel or aluminum and are easy to operate and maintain.
