A low-cost way to monitor tension output, the Digital Tension Meter (DTM) is perfect for applications where access to tension control parameters is not required. Operators can mount a control away from the web to get feedback on current web tension via a backlit display and illuminated digits. The DTM is encased in high-impact plastic to withstand demanding conditions. A sealed front panel meets industry-standard NEMA 4X/IP65 specifications for wash-down and dusty environments. This meter can be used with any tension sensor amplifier by reading the 0 to 1 mA meter output reference.
Strong and versatile, Tidland Lug Shafts deliver superior performance in the widest range of converting applications. Unmatched for positive holding power, the lug-style design eliminates core damage, prevents roll slip through fast startups and shutdowns, and minimizes vibration at high web speeds. Simple modular construction and standardized components mean quick off-the-shelf spares service and easy in-plant maintenance when necessary.
Series 500 Lug Shaft – Air
The Series 500 Lug Shaft is designed for light- to heavy-duty applications in 50.8 mm (2 inch) to 152.4 mm (6 inch) ID cores; often used in center unwind and rewind applications with either fiber or steel cores. These reliable shafts are constructed of alloy steel, aluminum, or lightweight, composite materials – depending on usage and requirements.
Series 550 Lug Shaft – Mechanical
The Series 550 Lug Shaft is designed for medium- to heavy-duty in 76.2 mm (3 inch) ID cores; often used in center unwind and rewind applications with either fiber or steel cores. The shaft body is constructed of 4150 heat treated steel or lightweight, composite materials. Each shaft is built to order and has as much as 85% fewer moving parts than other mechanical shafts.
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’s Air Brakes deliver reliable continuous tension control for a wide variety of applications. These single rotor, high output brakes feature a unique convection design for dissipating heat resulting in superior performance and prolonged pad life with models capable of handling a maximum torque range of 1,430 lb-in to 23,700 lb-in.
These Air Brakes are durable construction for your most demanding braking needs and can be custom configured for your exact tension and braking needs, whether that be delicate tissue, heavy-weight liner board, textile, film or foils.
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.
