TENSION CONTROL 101: Closed Loop PID Control
A brief overview of tension transducer measurement and PID control
The nature of the Extended Range option on Dover Flexo’s tension transducers is misunderstood by some in the industry. So, we thought it might be helpful to present the facts about this feature and to discuss when and why you might choose it.
The simplest way to determine the running tension on your web in any isolated zone of your web press or machine is to install an idler roll that also measures tension. The most reliable dead-shaft idler roll with accurate tension-sensing capability is the original: the TR Tension Roll transducer.
Get improved finished product quality in your web process by adding direct tension measurement and control equipment. Starting with a pair of DFE tension transducers and an automatic tension controller is an affordable, easy-to-implement machinery upgrade with a fast ROI.
Dover Flexo Electronics' precision-machined aluminum idler rollers and tension rollers are manufactured to the highest quality and can be used solo on your press or web machinery or with any stationary shaft, shaft-end tension transducers or UPB transducers including DFE’s Model C, or UPBH and SUPB type transducers.
