How do you hold your cores?


Do you use core cones or something similar, like "end plugs" or "dummy chucks" to hold your cores on your unwind or rewind equipment? If you do, find out how they mount on your thru shaft. Oftentimes this type of core holding device has set screws that directly contact the thru shaft. If that is the case in your operation, you may want to invest in units with bushing type locking.

We manufacture and sell aluminum core cones. Our standard units include set screws that directly contact the thru shaft. Over time, these set screws can mar the thru shaft, making it impossible to remove the core cones. We offer split bushing locking as an option, for a few dollars more. This option ensures the set screws will not come in contact with the thru shaft, thus saving your machine operators tons of time and lots of aggravation. This small investment will prove very fast return in time saved.
