The aluminium profile winding shaft with clamping shells was developed especially for coreless winding and for the use with thin-walled cores. The core-protecting characteristic of this design makes the shaft very interesting for many industrial sectors. Due to the aluminium profile the expansion shaft is extreme light. In addition to the already existing 3" diameter, the new 6" diameter enables a much higher load capacity. Both expansion shafts can also be ordered with material clamping for coreless applications. The shell expansion shafts are available with standard journals, journals on customers request or as a flanged version for cantilever [...]

Manufacturers regularly ask for increasingly lightweight winding shafts. They usually want to achieve higher user-friendliness or are compelled by work regulations in their country to find other options to reduce weight. Just because shaft handling devices are very expensive or cannot be used due to sheer lack of space, the winding shaft offers optimisation potential. For this purpose the IBD Wickeltechnik GmbH developed a clamping shaft with aluminium bearing pin for the packaging industry for a customer in Australia. The low weight was crucial since a regulation is applicable for many companies in Australia that a worker is allowed [...]
