Tidland’s affordable Digital Measurement System is an extremely accurate and reliable method of measuring slitter knife positions. This easy to use system reduces operator error and greatly speeds up re-positioning times. For slit widths 508 mm (20 inches) and longer, accuracy is within ± 0.18 mm (0.007 inch), and for slit widths under 20 inches (508 mm), accuracy increases to ± 0.10 mm (0.004 inch) or better.
The Digital Measurement System is simple to install, requiring standard 110V power plus 80 psi (5.5 bar) minimum filtered air supply. It permanently mounts between existing machine frames using two end-mounting blocks supplied with the unit. And the electronic display can be mounted at any position on the machine.

Tidland’s Narrow Web Shafts were created specifically to meet the needs of narrow-web converters. These economical shafts are designed to fit any press — with cantilevered, drop-in, flange, and bar mounting styles available.
The Tidland Cyclone™ Series high speed centering shafts increase throughput by eliminating roll loping and enabling web handling operations to run smoothly at higher speeds. The external
element, two-stage pneumatic design holds the core concentric to the body, reducing machine vibration and wear.
The Cyclone Series is available in diameters ranging from 3 inch to over 20 inch.
Strong and versatile, Tidland Lug Shafts deliver superior performance in the widest range of converting applications. Unmatched for positive holding power, the lug-style design eliminates core damage, prevents roll slip through fast startups and shutdowns, and minimizes vibration at high web speeds. Simple modular construction and standardized components mean quick off-the-shelf spares service and easy in-plant maintenance when necessary.
Series 500 Lug Shaft – Air
The Series 500 Lug Shaft is designed for light- to heavy-duty applications in 50.8 mm (2 inch) to 152.4 mm (6 inch) ID cores; often used in center unwind and rewind applications with either fiber or steel cores. These reliable shafts are constructed of alloy steel, aluminum, or lightweight, composite materials – depending on usage and requirements.
Series 550 Lug Shaft – Mechanical
The Series 550 Lug Shaft is designed for medium- to heavy-duty in 76.2 mm (3 inch) ID cores; often used in center unwind and rewind applications with either fiber or steel cores. The shaft body is constructed of 4150 heat treated steel or lightweight, composite materials. Each shaft is built to order and has as much as 85% fewer moving parts than other mechanical shafts.
With Tidland’s Equalizer Model D3 Differential Air Shaft, operators can run a variety of different roll widths with adjustable pressure all along the length at the same time. The Equalizer D3 is guaranteed to provide core positioning with adjustable air pressure without spacers or core stop setup. It’s designed for duplex center or surface winders for multiple roll tension equalization. When not covered by the core, tension elements mechanically lock in place to secure core position through the entire run. The D3 requires no tools for core stops, no core stop positioning. Use these air shafts and say “No” to tools, spacers, core shifts and waiting for core position setup.
