Web tension control

Web tension measurement devices are a fundamental requirement to achieve the correct web tension in the different sections of the line.

Depending on the requirement, different measuring systems are used.

High demands to speed, material and precision require exact adjustment of the web tension in the different machine sections.

The web tension transducer roller captures the web tension, the machine control compares this value to the setting and continuously controls the web tension via the corresponding drive of the pull unit.
