Compact Tension Control

November 1, 2010

MAGPOWR, a leader in web tension and torque control, announced the immediate availability of the Spyder Plus Tension Control for load cell tension control, open-loop systems and dancer applications.

Ideal for applications where cost and machine space are primary concerns, the Spyder Plus is a cost-effective control for brakes, clutches or drives. Spyder Plus can be mounted remotely and easily integrated with an existing PLC or remote PC. A basic LCD readout and user-friendly keypad allows local control over simple tuning, adjustable taper tension and security lockout without constant attention or special training.

Spyder Plus has powerful features for dancer applications that were once only available with more expensive controls. Dancer mode now allows the unique ability to use load cells to monitor web tension, while remote setpoint adjustment improves efficiency, especially when multiple controls are used in the same application. Spyder Plus also works with third party ultrasonic or laser sensors to determine roll diameter.

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.
