Variable Wrap Angle Technology™

(Excerpt) “Variable Wrap Angle Technology™, a Montalvo exclusive, improves on conventional web tension measurement and control by eliminating the need for isolation of the tension sensing roll with a lead-in or lead-out idler roll, saving money and valuable machine real estate.

This technology allows installation of load cells for web tension measurement and control on the first idler roll after an unwind roll, or on the last idler roll prior to the rewinder. This means customers can save space and save money by installing fewer idler rolls on the machine.

Additionally, the technology may allow the retrofit of a closed-loop tension control system where it was not thought possible before due to space and cost restrictions. This system can also be used where the material being processed may only contact a roll on one side, such as with sensitive coatings or adhesives. Variable Wrap Angle technology is featured on all Montalvo CB-64-based tension controllers. The CB-64 control system is the first and only stand-alone tension controller in the industry with this capability…”
