Torque Controller maintains constant web tension.

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...

Tension Indicators feature compact, general-purpose design.

Powered by 24 Vdc, EasyView tension indicators amplify web tension signal from transducers installed in machine's web path. Web tension amplifier displays tension reading on analog or digital meter, while supplying isolated 0-to-10 Vdc tension signal output to PLC, drive, or controller. Zero and calibration settings are stored digitally, allowing stable and drift-free output over time and...

Transducer measures tension in tight spaces.
Sensors, Monitors & Transducers

Transducer measures tension in tight spaces.

Based on dual-beam design, Model C transducer, THN is a strain-gauge, tension-measuring device used in pairs that mount opposed in machine web path. Each end of idler roll shaft fits securely into THN transducer coupling to create tension-sensing idler roll. Made of stainless steel and aluminum, transducer offers single-bolt mounting and load ratings from 25-800 lb. It is 1-¾ in. wide and...

Strain Gage Amplifiers handle multiple channels.

MAC MultiAmplifier Card and IMUX Tension Multiplexer provide multi-point tension monitoring. MAC amplifies signals from up to 8 tension transducers or load cells, and supplies corresponding number of 0 to 10 Vdc signals. Signals may be used as inputs to drives, PLCs, or other control devices. Additional 0 to 1 mA or 0 to l00 microA signal is supplied as meter output. IMUX can select and display...

Brake Controller operates pneumatically.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Brake Controller operates pneumatically.

Manual device is suitable for open-loop unwind applications that do not require automated closed-loop control. It operates on 0 to 100 psi filtered shop air and has 3 pneumatic solenoids that channel air flow to 1, 2, or 3 brakes or brake cylinders. Two-position toggle switches turn each output channel on and off. Adjustable regulator knob and air pressure gauge on front panel let machine...

Dancer Arm Controller works under tension.
Agricultural & Farming Products

Dancer Arm Controller works under tension.

SmartWeb(TM) digital dancer arm controller manages tension on converting and winding machinery or web presses where process is intermittent and web slack take-up is needed. It can calculate instantaneous torque requirements based on fixed and variable rotating inertia, and automatically optimizes and refines itself as machine runs. Controller works with pneumatic, magnetic particle, or...

Sensors, Monitors & Transducers

Web Tension Transducer handles narrow webs or filaments.

VNW Very Narrow Web tension transducer measures process tension in narrow web or ribbon (up to 6 in. wide) or filament. It can be installed on process machinery for unwind/payoff, rewind/take-up or intermediate zone applications. Tension is measured by high-output silicon strain gages housed internally on dual cantilevered transducer beam. Six different mounting styles are offered to accommodate...
