Lightweight strip shafts
West Bridgewater MA USA
Double E offers the 6" lightweight model SR shaft (SRL-2000), which minimizes shaft weight in both light and heavy-duty applications. The product is 20 percent lighter than the standard SR-2000 strip shaft while maintaining the same strength. The shaft’s aluminum extrusion was designed and optimized to maintain its low weight per inch without sacrificing quality and durability. The design employs nine wear-resistant gripping elements to grip cores securely while minimizing core distortion. The SRL-2000 can be upgraded with a self-centering feature. In that model, supporting strips help to keep rolls centered on the shaft to reduce roll bounce and vibration during winding. Double E says the SRL-2000 is ideal for applications involving multiple slit rewinding and where operator lifting injuries are a concern.
