Web Tension Measurement

Source: ABB Measurement & Analytics

Today, web machinery is being equipped with more process automation than ever before, including closed-loop controls and recipe management. A wider range of materials must be processed at higher operating speeds – without sacrificing product quality or risking downtime.

In most machinery applications, knowing what the web tension actually is at various points of the processing line has become a fundamental requirement for successful operations.

Performance improvement goals are difficult to achieve if your tension measurement load cells require frequent re-calibration, or if you feel you cannot rely on the measured values.
