Trying to Simplify Web Tension Control?
Can we reliably control a process variable like web tension without measuring it? Even with a forgiving web process, it's not likely we could consistently maintain accuracy and repeatability. To directly control tension we need to be able to monitor the tension we're actually running at so that our control system-whether human or electronic-can make machine adjustments to get us to where we want to be.

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.
