Lead time. Repairability. Availability. Customer Service. Central Location. These are just some of the reasons why EMT is your choice for core holding equipment.
EMT lug-style air shafts are ideal for general purpose and high torque core holding applications. Made in sizes from 1” through 10”, the shaft body can be manufactured of steel, aluminum, or carbon fiber with free-floating lugs. This design elminates the need for springs which could break and puncture the bladder. Customized to fit your machine, the precision, heat-treated journals have a close tolerance straight fit into the shaft body which allows for easier repair compared to shafts with tapered journals. EMT's three-week, known as QuickShip, delivery is available for standard 3" lug-style shafts.
EMT International lug-style chucks are ideal for adapting a shaft to run multiple core sizes. Made in sizes from 3” through 10”, EMT chucks feature free-floating lugs; a design that eliminates springs which could break and puncture the bladder or jam the lugs inside the chuck body. The bi-directional lugs grip the core with rotation in either direction. The split clamp is quick and easy to use, and 3” diameter sizes are stocked for immediate delivery.
