Instruments and controllers that measure, monitor or adjust tension in cable, fiber, belts, sheets and other webs.
Tension Sensing Categories
Force and Torque Instruments (292 suppliers)
Force and torque instruments are used to measure force, weight or torque. Some can measure force and torque by changing the sensor / transducer.
Strain Gauges (122 suppliers)
Strain gauges are measuring elements that convert force, pressure, tension, etc., into an electrical signal.
Tension Meters (72 suppliers)
Tension meters are instruments that measure tension in cable, fiber, belts and webs, or sheets.
Traction and Tension Dynamometers (25 suppliers)
Traction dynamometers and tension dynamometers are used to measure force in tension, traction and weighing applications with cables, guy wires and chain.
Web Controllers (67 suppliers)
Web controllers maintain control functionality over processes with web or sheet rollers. Control functionality includes maintaining tension of the web, centering on the track, and material feed rates.
Web Sensing and Scanning Systems (45 suppliers)
Web sensing systems and web scanning systems employ a variety of sensors that scan across a moving web to detect defects and measure parameters such as product basis weight, thickness and moisture.
Web Tension Indicators (38 suppliers)
Web tension indicators measure and report tension parameters in web or other flat-sheet production processes. Some types of web tension indicators have control functionality as well.
Web Tension Sensors (40 suppliers)
Web tension sensors are used to measure static or running tension in webs or sheets during the manufacture of textiles, paper, and other sheet materials.
