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.
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.
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.
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.
