Every airshaft is engineered for a specific customer application.
(Nashua, NH) - Recognizing that every winding operation places unique demands on core shaftperformance, NimCor engineers a custom fit for every shaft constructed within its broad line of shaft styles and models.
Company engineers calculate specifications for every airshaft order based on each
customer's application, then archive each plan should the customer ever place a repeat order or need details about a previous purchase. Roll size, weight and suspended distance continually require engineering decisions regarding shaft deflection and rigidity. Roll weight and fastest operating speeds influence the need for self-centering designs and the size, style and number of gripping lugs or buttons. Shaft journals must be machined for an exact fit and are sometimes hardened to serve as load-bearing surfaces.
NimCor airshafts are available in steel, stainless steel, aluminum and lightweight carbon fiber composite. With in-house carbon fiber winding capabilities, NimCor can readily control key characteristics of its carbon fiber air shafts to achieve optimum roll handling performance while reducing shaft weight for better ergonomic handling by operators.
