Ideal for packaging and general converting applications, the D6X improves on the D2 and D3 models by offering easy maintenance, removable core stop trays for fast change-overs and a wide range of torque outputs at competitive pricing to run better, faster and smarter.

Simplified setup and maintenance

“We designed the D6X to improve upon our legacy D2 and D3 core-slip differential shafts in every way,” said Aaron Powers, global product manager for Tidland Winding Solutions. “The removable core stop trays allow an operator to remove the tray with core stop positions set for one job, then replace it with saved core stop positions set for the next. The D6X will help our customers reduce their setup times and simplify maintenance, allowing for more uptime and throughput.”

High weight capacities

Featuring easy-to-replace tension segments and air bladders, as well as two air systems for tension control and core stops, the D6X allows for high weight capacities while supporting odd and larger sized cores for a wide range of applications. With core stops three ways around, customers will see greater stability for better edge quality at faster speeds.
