Pneumatically Actuated Disc Rollers and Shafts

As profiles become more and more complex many customers are moving to our air operated PA Disc Roller Shafts which provide automatic profile depth adjustment at 1/4″ width intervals. These systems can handle up to a 1” variance in surface height and automatically adjust to profile changes.

Our newest design (image left) features a radiused operating surface to maintain a high level of surface integrity by eliminating corners and the need for a disc sleeve. These new discs are a direct replacement for existing VMI or BPS PA Discs and can be ordered with a new shaft for retro-fitment to machines that do not currently use air actuated rollers.

  • Unique radius profile surface
  • Less disc to disc binding mean fewer stops and starts for machine operator
  • Ply surface is touched on tangential lines only for significantly reduced ply damage
  • Long life stainless steel roller bearings resist moisture
  • Perfect for highly variable ply profiles
  • Cost on par with existing rollers with longer expected operation life
  • Compatible with existing PA shafts or can be ordered with new BPS shaft
  • Three tension variations available
  • Largest net operating range in the industry
  • Made in USA
