The stability and accuracy displayed by MAGPOWR’s GTS Global Load Cell allow the tension to be precisely measured and controlled on a roll. The GTS units, designed to be mounted under standard inch or metric pillow block bearings, measure the load created by the web and acting on the sensing roll.
Two GTS Load Cells should be used, one for each side of the sensing roll, thereby accurately measuring the total web tension force acting on the roll, independent of web width or location. The flexible cable connector eliminates the need for left and right models, as each GTS load cell can be mounted on either side of the machine.
A full Wheatstone bridge is incorporated into each GTS load cell for the maximum accuracy and stability. All sizes are adaptable and pre-drilled and tapped to accept standard inch and metric pillow block bearings.
The Tidland Cyclone™ Series high speed centering shafts increase throughput by eliminating roll loping and enabling web handling operations to run smoothly at higher speeds. The external
element, two-stage pneumatic design holds the core concentric to the body, reducing machine vibration and wear.
The Cyclone Series is available in diameters ranging from 3 inch to over 20 inch.
The Ultra-Lightweight GX Air Shaft is made with lightweight, high-strength aluminum and an innovative 2-piece expanding element. It delivers unmatched performance in many unwind and rewind applications. Operators’ backs will be saved as this shaft is one of the leading ergonomic solutions for converting applications and has helped many converters reduce or eliminate workers’ compensation claims due to overexertion and heavy lifting.
GX shafts are available to suit a large variety of core sizes and are part of Tidland’s complete line of ergonomic solutions for converters, which includes the ever-popular Force5 Air Chuck and Ultrashaft Carbon Fiber Air Shaft.
Series 850 takes our innovative two-piece expanding elements to a whole new level. The unique spiral design of the Series 850 provides a continuous 360º of radial grip and intrinsically equalized load distribution. These advanced shafts also feature a two-piece body design, self retraction, durable poly bladder, and a fail-safe multi-circuit air system, with check valves to ensure that a loss of air in one element will not affect the expansion and performance of the other elements.
The Series 850 Spiral Strip Shaft is designed for medium to heavy-duty in 75 mm (3 inch) to 406 mm (16 inch) ID cores. The spiral strip design of this shaft minimizes vibration to deliver smoother operation and higher speeds. It’s an ideal choice for surface winders or with lay-on rolls.
This narrow web shaft’s three-leaf design minimizes thin wall core deformation and improves roll quality. For rewinds, special centering ribs in-between expanding leaves position cores closer to the center of rotation, resulting in better-quality finished rolls.
