  • Slitter-Rewinders Benefit from Segmented Tension Roll Transducers (.pdf)
    slit and rewound) add a dimension of variability in the winding process that can make fine tension control on the individual strands critical. DFE was the sole tension equipment manufacturer years ago to release a multiplesegment. tension transducer roll with ten individual tension sensor modules
  • Sensor Sense: Piezoelectric Force Sensors
    forces, piezoelectric force sensors are mostly used for dynamic- force measurements such as oscillation, impact, or highspeed compression or tension. Any force applied to the piezoelectric sensing element produces a separation of charges within the atomic structure of the material, generating

  • Torque Sensor Application - Assembly Line / Automation
    Sensors / transducers are essential in many automated assembly, packaging and labeling processes. Below, a reaction torque sensor is setup with a servo motor in an automated conveyor belt assembly line to control the tension in the winding tape while providing feedback regarding alignment, out
  • Case Study: Sensor Operating in Crosrol Textile Carding Machine
    To control the tension on a delicate bundle of cotton fibres as passing through processes at high speed requires a sensor that can measure very small angles with high resolution over a long time. The cotton fibre does not have a very consistent cross section as it is drawn through
  • Sensor Sense: Resistive Strain Gages
    Strain gages make up the fundamental sensing element for many different types of sensors including those for pressure, load, torque, and weight. They operate on a simple physical property of materials: The measured resistance of a material depends on its length and cross-sectional area. A material
  • Introduction to Strain Gages
    Strain Gages (gauges): What is a Strain gage? A Strain gage (sometimes refered to as a Strain Gauge) is a sensor whose resistance varies with applied force; It converts force, pressure, tension, weight, etc., into a change in electrical resistance which can then be measured. A Strain gage
  • Load Cell Application - Viscosity / Liquid Separation
    into the liquid. Once the probe is in the liquid, a certain amount of tension is required to pull the probe back out. The thicker the liquid, the higher the viscosity is and the harder it is to pull the probe out. The load cell measures this tension and transfers the data to a display. Both MIT and NASA
