Torque reactive chucks

The TR100 XP chuck is a heavy duty mechanical shaftless unwind chuck designed for corrugating applications where both 100mm and 4” id cores are used.

The TR100 XP has a high weight carrying capacity and is designed for virtual maintenance free operation.

The 3 jaws sit on 6 hardened steel pins. The six hardened steel pins in turn sit on a precision machined hexagon.

As the reel is rotated the hardened pins ride up the machined profile of the hex and expand the jaws within the core.

The TR100 XP’s expansion is by-directional so suitable for over or under winding on the same unwind stand.
