Open Loop Tension Control

Open Loop Control

Ideal for slitting, coating and laminating, and general web processing. Closed loop consist of tension sensor (transducer, load cell) and dancer systems. Feedback is given from the sensor to a tension controller or PLC for signal conditioning

Technical Data

We can provide open loop tension control via PLC or Digital Tension Control. In either case a diameter sensor measures the diameter of the roll and maintains the tension based on the diameter reading. The diameter sensor can be Laser or Ultrasonic. Please contact us for application assistance.
