Tension Control Article: The Importance of Load Cells (Transducers)

Excerpt: “The trend towards faster, wider web width machinery and the processing of a broader range of substrates has resulted in a greater emphasis being placed on tension control equipment. Without an accurate method of measurement and control, product quality and productivity will be affected. Distortions in a material, stretched as a result of excessive tension, can be just as counterproductive as folds and creases from too low a tension. Web breaks and the consequent downtime are costly affairs.

In order to control web tension, there must be continual and precise measurement of actual tension in the web in a format that is meaningful to the process line’s tension control system. That system regulates tension through the drives or through brakes at zones in the line that are preset to determine tension levels.”
