The NW™ Narrow Web Tension Transducer is a robust cantilevered tension-sensing idler roll for narrow web applications. The Size 0 NW Transducer with a 2.25” roll diameter is the ideal tension sensing device for lighter tag and label applications that may not require the muscle of the size 1 (3” diameter roll) or size 2 (3.5” diameter roll) NW Transducers.
Pictured is a Narrow Web transducer with an optional built-in LED tension display and a 0-to-10Vdc output. The meter display option is perfect for conserving space on a cantilevered narrow web press.
The EasyView™ tension indicator is a space-saving, cost-saving readout module that connects to a tension transducer (or transducer pair) and displays tension on a digital or analog display. It puts out an isolated 0-to-10 Vdc web tension signal for use by a PLC, drive or other control electronics.
The SteadyWeb 5™ tension controller is a feature-packed, easy-to-use closed-loop tension controller with a back-lit, color graphic user interface. Panel mount and full-enclosure versions are available.
Our products are used in unwind, rewind, and intermediate applications for any moving continuous material which undergoes an operation such as printing, coating, laminating, treating, metallizing, rewinding, unwinding, slitting, coating or other processes. Tension measurement and control systems for flexible packaging and paper, film and foil converting are our specialty.
