Montalvo Launches Line of Core Chucks

GORHAM, ME | Montalvo, international specialists in web tension control, announces its newest product offering, Axial Activated Core Chucks. As part of its Defender Series Core Chucks, the new core chuck is designed for shaftless unwinding and rewinding applications requiring maximum roll/core gripping and/or utilizing floor pickup. 

The Defender Chucks, sometimes referred to as lug chucks, are said to be cost-effective, rugged, and durable core chucks capable of withstanding even the dustiest environments while being simple to utilize. An exclusive “safe lock” model expands the capabilities of the AA core chucks even further by resolving any potential risk of the core not fully tightening and ensuring the roll is always perfectly concentric. Cores are engaged as a result of radial lug expansion as the core is loaded into the chuck, ensuring maximum grip so you can Achieve More.
