Expansion chucks

The Vorwald expansion chucks are suitable for unwinders without shafts, rewinding and unwinding machines. The simple construction ensures long service life. Several different types of expansion lugs are available for covering all requirements: Lengthwise grooved expansion lugs made of steel and expansion lugs with smooth surface made of polyurethane or screwed versions with various surface profiles that are quickly interchangeable. The number and positioning of the expansion lugs in the so called mantle are determined by the customer requirements.
