Differental shafts for converter rolls

Dec. 8, 2005
Model D4 differential shafts boost finished-roll quality, while enhancements to existing D2 and D3 models cut setup time. All models are capable of rewinding multiple rolls of low-tension material


The Equalizer-Model D4 Differential shaft represents the latest technology for converting dust-free rolls with superior structure. Precise control of tension as low as 0.1 lb/linear in. (pli) allows converters to run ultrathin films. A special two-row, 12-ball, torque-activated core-lock design keeps tension equalized across any combination of roll widths.

Core-slip differential air shafts also provide tension equalization across any combination of roll widths. The Equalizer-Model D2 works for repeated slit-widths with operator-positioned, toolless core stops that can be set and retained through multiple runs. The Model D3 works for repeated or varying slit width runs with automatically positioned core stops.
