Ergonomic Air Shaft Calculator

February 1, 2005

Tidland has launched a new tool to help customers quickly identify ergonomic alternatives for air shafts based upon specific application requirements. Those responsible for ergonomic initiatives in the workplace will find this tool a useful aid in eliminating unnecessary lifting hazards. After accepting information on basic requirements for simple mounting styles such as unwind or rewind, roll weight and web width, the system provides a carbon fiber or aluminum external element air shaft solution that can weigh as much as 50% less than the existing shaft. Through continuous improvement of existing shaft designs, Tidland has developed a complete line of lightweight air shafts suitable for the ergonomic workplace. Each shaft is built to meet the exact specifications of the environment in which it will be used. Telephone: 800-426-1000; Web: www.tidland.com/erg_config.asp
