Printed Electronics Tension Control

With printed electronics there is little room for error. Inconsistent or poor tension control can lead to registration errors, stretching, lower print quality, inconsistent production, and more, all adding up to increased scrap rates and lost profits. Montalvo tension control solutions are designed for the unique variables found in Printed Electronics manufacturing utilizing Roll to Roll (R2R) or Roll to Sheet (R2S) processes, giving you greater process control and productivity.

The demand for printed electronics is not slowing down and manufacturers need to be able to expand not just their current production but their ability to innovate through the capabilities of their machines. Montalvo’s web tension control products deliver the quality, performance, and reliability you require to achieve more!
