In Brief: Taper Tension for Rewind ControlTechnical Papers

Excerpt: “Taper tension is sometimes necessary if you are center winding film or other extensible material. If you maintain a constant tension on the web, as the diameter of the roll increases, the wraps become tighter. This sometimes stretches the web. If the web just came from a dryer section and the film is warm when it is wound, it will tend to stretch more. Then as it cools, it shrinks to its original size and either telescopes the roll or crushes the core. Similar problems arise when winding extensible foam materials as well.

The best method of achieving taper tension is to measure the diameter of the roll, either using an ultrasonic sensor or two pulse tachometers (one on measuring revolutions of the rewind roll and one measuring revolutions of a drive roll).”
