Web Tension

February 14, 2007

Magpowr, a leader in web tension and torque control, has introduced Digital Tension Meter, a low-cost solution to display web tension in areas of the web where access to a tension control unit is not required or convenient for the operator. The Digital Tension Meter features a simple LCD readout with 0.6-inch bright red digits and a selectable decimal point. A high impact plastic case and sealed front panel ensure operation in wash-down or dusty environments. The DTM features DIN Rail Mounts and simplified wiring connections for easy installation.

Magpowr introduced Magnetic Particle clutches and brakes to the web converting industry in 1967. Today, along with Fife (guiding and inspection) and Tidland (slitting and winding), they are part of a family of companies that represent technology leadership and innovation to converters, packaging facilities, paper mills and all applications in between. Maxcess International is also spearheading online training through its ‘Tech Tips’ e-seminars and training modules.
