Designed to take the weight and hassle out of unloading finished reels, everything about the Jarshire Easy-Glide air shaft is designed to aid the operator.
Made by Svecom to a Jarshire design, Easy-Glide utilises a 640/PL shaft, which has multi bladders and gripping ledges. Aluminium or carbon fibre shaft bodies keep shaft weight to a minimum whilst the multi bladder principle provides high levels of grip, concentric running and low maintenance.
In operation, the gripping ledges fully retract below body diameter so no rubber pads or steel buttons protrude for the reels to snag, whilst the three rows of bearings run the full length of the shaft length allowing reels to slide with minimum effort.
There is an 8mm expansion range between contracted and expanded diameter and extraction springs within the shaft assist in shaft contraction and reduce waiting time for air to expel.
This next step in air shaft design has already been proven with many 3" and 6" shafts successfully operating on production lines in the UK.
