Torque Controller maintains constant web tension.

February 19, 2014

Suitable for applications in which precise tension control is not essential, EasyWeb™ Open-Loop Torque Controller provides taper tension to center-driven rewind or unwind operations. Web tension is regulated by controlling motor or brake torque based on varying levels of roll diameter. EasyWeb™ can accept signals from direct diameter sensor or calculate diameter using line and roll speed signals. With bright OLED display, user interface enables viewing in any light and from any angle. Read More

In-Line Tensioner suits die cutting and tube manufacturing.

February 14, 2014

Utilizing CD Series Brake, i4 Tension Indicator, and pair of ES-LR Live Roller Load Cells, custom In-Line Tensioner System enables operators to manually adjust output to brake to create exact desired tension level based on precise tension feedback provided from load cells displayed on indicator. This eliminates guesswork in adjusting tension by touching web. Automatic version utilizing S4 Closed Loop Tension Controller is also available. Read More

Seat Belt Pretensioner offers simplified design..

December 8, 2010

SPR4 (Snake Pretensioner Retractor) uses plastic piston instead of metal components to transfer tensioning torque, resulting in simple and light weight design. Comprised mainly of piston, gas generator, tube, and pinion, uses tensioning concept that transfers power without limiting functionality. Pre-tensioning takes 10 msec, and green gas used exhibits low variation over temperature range. Also, tube is bent into dimensions of retractor without constraining seat belt webbing. Read More

Compact Tension Control handles open loop and dancer applications.

August 27, 2010

Intended for load cell tension control, open-loop systems, and dancer applications, Spyder Plus can be mounted remotely and integrated with existing PLC or remote PC for control of brakes, clutches, or drives. LCD readout and keypad allows local control over tuning, taper tension, and security lockout; Dancer mode enables use of load cells to monitor web tension; and remote setpoint adjustment promotes efficiency. Control also works with third party ultrasonic or laser sensors. Read More
