*the following are available options that can be added to your Guardian 2 Safety Chucks

Reversible Safety Lock
Prevents unintentional opening of the hand wheel and are field reversible to improve operator accessibility.

Axial Carrier
Maintains precise shaft positioning and axial adjustment.

Conical Chuck Journal Seat
Allows use of simple journals without the risk of excessive stress and wear. This is a cost effective alternative to machining journals with difficult and expensive undercuts.

Hand Wheel Open/Closed Position Indication
Indicates whether hand wheel is open or closed via an electronic sensor.

 

Sliding Housing – G21800
Allows for up to +/- 50 mm axial adjustment.

High Speed Safety Chuck
Handles web speeds in excess of 300 m (980 ft.) per minute. This is achieved by balancing the hand wheel (with safety lock) and shaft.

Integrated Connection For Direct Inflation Of Winding Shafts – G21800
Offers ease and convenience of automatically inflating winding shafts while shafts are installed in the chuck. This is important in applications requiring differential winding shafts or for automated shaft and roll handling.
