Three-inch UC-3000 Air Chucks

  • 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 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.
