A mechanical core chuck from Tilt-Lock will provide better results when performing roll handling tasks. They’re designed to grip the roll firmly during rotation or movement, ensuring a safer, more efficient handling process. Tilt-Lock offers a wide variety of high-quality pneumatic core chuck products that expand automatically upon the application of tension, making them intuitive and easy to use.

We complement our line of mechanical core chucks with an assortment of core chuck adapters designed to fit existing chucks, enabling you to make fast changes when needed. This offer eliminates the need to install another chuck for each shift in core size.

Our selection of expandable core chucks includes:

Flange Style Chucks
