  • 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
  • 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
  • Application of electronic coiling and electronic let-off in water jet looms
    includes: 1.Driver and motor. 2.Tension sensor: 300KG / 500KG / 750KG. 3.Matching loom encoder. 4.Related wire harness.
  • 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
  • Load Cell Application - Suspension Bridge
    FUTEK load cell and instruments can be used in suspension bridges. Our load cells can be installed on the cables to measure the tension and stress applied to the cables under various traffic conditions. They can also be installed under the post of the bridge to measure the compression the bridge
  • Clutches and Brakes
    infinitely by varying the input current, the magnetic particle clutches and brakes are ideal in an open loop system. To close the loop in the tensioning system, combine the magnetic particle clutch or brake with a Warner (R) sensor and control, resulting in more precise control of tension.
  • Load Cell Enhancement Using Micron Instruments' Semiconductor Strain Gages
    in resistance is proportional to the strain experienced by the sensor. If a wire is held under tension, it gets slightly longer and its cross-sectional area is reduced. This changes its resistance (R) in proportion to the strain sensitivity of the wire's resistance. When a strain is introduced, the strain
