Step 2: Load Cell Retrofit

TNT Tension Sensing Roller

Tension Sensing Roller

The Montalvo Brakes you just installed eliminates tension upsets that dancer is meant to correct. The existing dancer also does not provide actual tension feedback from the material you are running.

By replacing one of the existing idler rollers on your press with a Montalvo TNT or LCR load cell and roll assembly, you can bypass the dancer and receive continuous feedback of actual tension from your materials, upgrading the performance of your press.
