MAGPOWR Spyder Plus S1Read More
The new Spyder Plus S1 tension controller has all the existing features of the Spyder Plus controller, while adding an additional input for roll diameter. This input allows for additional powerful features normally reserved for our highest end controllers.
By referencing the actual measured diameter on this new input, this DIN rail mounted low-cost controller now includes very precise taper tension, hold level change options and inertia compensation options in load cell and dancer modes. In addition, gain compensation in dancer mode allows for a stable dancer from full roll to core, regardless of roll-build ratio.
Like the Spyder Plus, the Spyder Plus S1 is a controller that can be configured as an open loop, closed loop load cell or closed loop dancer modes, providing accurate, reliable control by providing feedback to clutches and brakes, or interfacing directly with drives in unwind, rewind or point-to-point applications.
Built in Modbus TCP communications provide the ability to easily interface and share data with an existing PLC, remote PC, HMI or web browser, allowing for remote set point adjustment to further improve efficiency, especially when multiple controls are used in the same process.
MAGPOWR Spyder Plus Tension ControlRead More
Designed for precise tension control, MAGPOWR’s cost-effective Spyder Tension Control is capable of controlling web tension in closed-loop, open-loop, unwind, rewind, point-to-point or dancer applications. It measures tension from one or more MAGPOWR load cells and outputs a corrective analog signal to control a torque device. Its reduced size means it can be hidden away in an enclosure or underneath the machine.
With its Ethernet connection, the easy-to-use Spyder can be viewed on a web browser for remote troubleshooting, programming and/or data collection. Additionally, the Spyder provides an analog input for Manual Level setpoint, control inputs for Run/Stop, Auto/Manual: Tension On/Off, and E-Stop, and a 0-1 mADC meter output proportional to measured tension.
Spyder Plus has the ability to control open loop applications, advanced features for dancer applications, and the ability to interface and share data remotely. Spyder Plus now 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 VERSATEC Tension ControlRead More
MAGPOWR’s VERSATEC Versatile Tension Control provides true ease of use and extreme flexibility with its wide range of functions and operating modes. The VERSATEC Versatile Tension Control is a multi-function automatic tension or process controller that uses the US-2 Ultrasonic Sensor to measure distance and roll diameter. It has selectable operating modes for Unwind, Rewind, Dancer, Free Loop, or Ranging applications. This flexibility eliminates the need to learn the operation of different controls for different tension zones.
All setup and operating screens on the VERSATEC unit are indicated directly on the multi-line alphanumeric menu driven display in real words, not codes, with the corresponding values or status. From the keypad and display, you can control all operating parameters for any operating mode, including tension, distance, dancer position, loop position, alarm set points, security, language and units, and setup selection.
MAGPOWR Cygnus Tension ControlRead More
A variety of advanced yet easy-to-use features are apparent immediately to operators using MAGPOWR’s compact, powerful Cygnus® Tension Controls. Operators can easily navigate through advanced tension control functions and codes using on-screen prompts displayed in full text, making the setup process faster. Web tension is maintained or adjusted using multifunction “smart keys,” similar to those used in ATMs, and a large backlit display for easy viewing. Converters and printers can dramatically reduce setup time and improve consistency with powerful features like automatic tuning and out of round roll compensation (previously only possible with a dancer control). Complex tension settings can be input quickly with full text prompts as opposed to more complicated input procedures of the past.
Tidland Air BrakesRead More

Accessories for the Tidland Mark I Roll SaverRead More
Mark I Roll Saver Adapters
These adapters are available in three sizes and may be used in combination with the Mark I Roll Saver to restore 101.6 mm (4 inch), 127 mm (5 inch), 152.4 mm (6 inch) and 171.5 mm (6 3/4 inch) crushed cores.
Mark I Roll Saver Sledge Weight
The Sledge Weight is a useful tool for driving the Mark I Roll Saver into difficult cores. It’s better, simpler, and safer than any type of sledgehammer 9 kg (20 lb) weight.
Tidland NimCor Roll RestorerRead More
The NimCor Roll Restorer quickly turns seemingly unusable stock back into profitable inventory by helping to salvage virtually any roll with a crushed or damaged core. The Roll Restorer can also be used to install shafts while restoring damaged rolls.
Choose from Two Models:
Standard Model: 50.8 mm to 152.4 mm Core ID
Heavy Duty Model: 50.8 mm to 304.8 mm Core ID (forklift mountable)
Tidland Mark I and II Roll SaversRead More
Save your crushed core with Tidland’s Mark I or Mark II Roll Savers. These roll savers are designed to re-open crushed cores, allowing for shaft insertion on rolls that would otherwise be considered scrap material. The Roll Saver provides a return on your investment with its first use as the cost is comparable to that of a damaged roll, creating a positive impact on profit margins and warehouse space. Air shafts cannot be inserted into rolls with even with the slightest deformation, leaving damaged rolls useless. With a Tidland portable hydraulic Roll Saver, rolls can be salvaged.
Tidland Raptor Series Air Powered Lug ChucksRead More
Tidland’s Raptor Series Air Powered Lug Chucks are easy to use and maintain and help eliminate the core damage usually associated with shaftless applications. The Air Powered Lug Chuck is ideal for high-speed printing, laminating, sheeting applications on unwind flying or zero speed splicers and other shaftless unwind/rewind applications. Unlike other chucks, Tidland’s Raptor Series Air Powered Chucks offer on-machine maintenance and toolless adapter changes from 76.2 mm (3 inch) to 305 mm (12 inch) cores in less than 5 seconds.
Grafisk Maskinfabrik DC330FBRead More
Combination Print Finishing
The powerful combination of semi-rotary die cutting, flatbed screen-printing and a 30 ton pressure heavy duty stamping and hot foil unit, makes even complex labels easy to run. The tooling cost is very low and most tools can be made locally or in-house. Existing tooling for older flatbed equipment can be reused. If you disable the flatbed units, the line cab produce normal industrial labels with flexo, lamination, cold foiling and semi-rotary die cutting at up to 45 m/min ( can be increased to 65 m/min with Productivity Pack).
GEW E2C UV/LED Curing SystemRead More
GEW’s E2C is the most powerful low energy UV curing system for narrow web presses.
The E2C UV curing system with RHINO electronic power supply takes curing of inks and coatings to new levels of productivity and print run security. The E2C-RHINO systems use substantially less energy. They enable colour process printing at full production speed with as little power as 90 W/cm (230W/inch).
E2C UV curing systems are safe for the widest range of heat-sensitive materials with no heat transfer to the machine or substrate at stand-by through the use of actively air cooled shutter technology.
Where alternative products exploit conventional curing technologies that often neglect energy monitoring, GEW state of the art UV systems implement advanced UV lamphead technology associated with the most energy efficient power supplies. E2C RHINO systems come with the additional benefit of a comprehensive 5-year warranty unique in its industry.
