UC-3000 Important Characteristics

Double E six-inch UC-3000 adapter chucks mounted on a three-inch core shaft.

  • 30 to 50 percent lighter than competing core chucks or adapters.
  • Proprietary urethane bladder material resists stretching, cutting, and abrasion - doesn't swell like rubber so the air chucks don't get stuck in cores.
  • Rugged clamping flange does not suffer from the recurring fatigue problems seen in other bladder chucks.
  • Easty air inflation; optional connecting air hose allows multiple chucks to be inflated simultaneously.
  • No need for maintenance.

Three-inch UC-3000 Air Chucks

Three-inch model UC-3000 air bladder chuck.

  • The three-inch UC-3000 air bladder chuck is often used in web applications with light to medium tension and with light roll weights.
  • Mounts easily onto a through shaft, and usually works in conjunction with a supporting roll collar at the opposite end of the roll.
  • The chuck commonly replaces old-style cones or wedges (which are heavy and/or labor-intensive to use) on narrow web packaging, form, fill & seal, and tag, tape & label machinery.
  • The LC-1000 Latching Roller Chuck is commonly used in similar applications when air inflation is not possible or not desired.
  • Also available as a cantilevered air chuck.
