Tire and Rubber Tension Control

When you need greater process consistency, higher product quality, and minimal to no downtime, you need Montalvo Tire & Rubber Tension Control Solutions. The curing process within rubber manufacturing is a critical time, where the liner/fabric is highly susceptible to defects if tension is not properly controlled. The unwind tension of the liner/fabric is a pivotal influence on the winding quality and ultimately the end product. Any inconsistencies in
unwind tension will directly affect material quality.

Montalvo works with manufacturers throughout the rubber industry and has provided the tension control solutions and know-how that allows them to Achieve More!
