Wire and Cable Tension Control

The demand on wire and cable manufacturers is ever changing, and that demand is requiring manufacturers to do more with their existing machines, receive more information about their process, increase automation, reduce scrap, and increase productivity. From running multiple types of material on the same machine to running thinner and thinner materials, wire and cable manufacturers need to be able to Achieve More.

Adding or upgrading the web tension control components of your machine is often the exact solution required to meet and exceed that ever changing demand while increasing end product quality, and expanding your machine’s capabilities.

Automation for the Modern Era

Do It all on One Machine

Often we find wire and cable machines have minimal or outdated tension control components and are experiencing a variety of process challenges affecting their end product quality and ability to meet changing demands. This results in operators continually having to make adjustments throughout the production run. The consequences of this are inconsistent end product, lower quality end product, lower productivity, and lack of process knowledge.

Montalvo’s web tension control solutions brings the latest tension control technology to the wire and cable industry, automating the process and reducing operator interaction, while decreasing set up time through saved process parameters and making operation easier than ever
