Shaft handling

Expansion shaft pullers for Vorwald shafts and other brands

Vorwald shaft pullers (EA) are utilised in numerous different versions in all branches of the paper, plastic, metal foil and laminate materials processing industries. Constantly increasing reel weights and dimensions, automated production sequences and stricter regulations regarding work safety have led to the increasing replacement of manual handling of expansion shafts by automated shaft pullers. Shaft handling devices serve for pulling the expansion shafts out of the finished reel and for introducing them into the core. Further functions such as automated core loading from the core magazine or pick up and removal transportation of the finished reel, are available and can be included as one complete turn-key package.

Features and advantages

  • Many years of experience in handling expansion shafts
  • The modular design system permits adaptation to actual requirements, from handling a small 50 kg expansion shafts to the shaft weighing many tons for a paper machine
  • Gentle hydraulic expansion of the shaft journals, with support when required
  • Automated venting of the expansion shaft
  • Hydraulic lifting stroke with overload protection function protects the expansion shaft journals against deformation
  • Vertical axis with roller rail system without play permits absolutely horizontal pull-out and feed-in of the expansion shafts
  • Continuous jolt-free accelerations protect the expansion shaft and reduce machine wear
  • Easy operator controls manually/semi-automatically/ fully automated, adapted to the customer requirements
  • Interface adaptation to the existing machine is possible by incorporating a PLC
  • Economically efficient by virtue of short reproducible working cycles
  • Utilisation of proven brand components for hydraulics, drive and roller rail system ensures many years of economic and reliable operation
