Air Shafts & Chucks

The Field-Proven Concept in Core Locking

Use COR-LOK® air shafts and chucks for positive locking without core damage and virtually maintenance-free operation. These unique air shafts and chucks employ a totally new inflating and gripping principle for greater gripping pressure and improved core contact.

The COR-LOK® design utilizes a single, small diameter tube spirally wound around the shaft body. When inflated, the tubing provides even, controlled expansion for the aluminum leaves and full surface engagement with the core I.D. - locking it securely to the shaft.

COR-LOK® air shafts are available in 1" to 18" diameters. Special, fractional and metric core sizes available.
