Nonwovens Tension Control

As the demand and applications for nonwovens continues to rapidly expand, so too does the demand on nonwovens manufactures to produce faster, with greater consistency, and
with increased quality. High quality tension control components are critical in order to achieve these goals, and are often the difference between profit and scrap.

Whether utilized on the windup, bonding, drying, finishing or converting (laminating, slitting, sheeting, coating, etc) process, Montalvo manufactures a wide range of high quality, high performance tension control components to maximize your process capability within any tension zone.

Montalvo delivers the quality, performance, consistency, and reliability you require to achieve more!

Quality and Consistency

From run to run and shift to shift

The results you require, every single time. Montalvo’s automated tension control systems feature saved process parameters, and “Set it and Forget it” technology to make set-up and operation easier than ever, minimizing operator interaction to produce the same high quality results from run to run and shift to shift.

Operators simply need to pull up the process, put the controller in “Auto” and then start the
production run. Montalvo tension control systems maximize your end product quality, and increase your process
and product consistency, while solving any tension control related problems you may have.
