The MAGPOWR TR-5 Tension Readout is a device for measuring tension in a moving web, strand, wire or narrow tape. It uses either one or two MAGPOWR load cells and interconnection cables.
This system can be used on any non-driven idler roll or at any position where the wrap angle of the web or strand does not change. Each load cell contains four foil type strain gages bonded to a sensing beam. These gages convert the load on the roll or sheave to an electrical signal. Within the TR-5, the signal from the load cells is amplified and displayed on the tension meter.
The amplifier of the TR-5 has low drift and high linearity, with a gain control range of 8:1 and tare adjustment of 50%. An auxiliary 0 to 10 VDC, or 4 to 20 mADC output is provided for interfacing to other products or systems.
The perfect combination of durability and high-speed operation in a lightweight, ergonomic air shaft is what operators will find in Tidland’s Ultrashaft Carbon Fiber Air Shafts. The Ultrashaft is available with a unique resin rich coating to provide further protection against abrasion, knife cuts, unexpected impact and normal wear and tear from daily shaft handling. This new Ultrashaft M30 results in a lighter overall shaft weight and eliminates guessing if the carbon fiber under a cracked sleeve is safe for your application.
Further enhancements to the shaft include high-torque lugs and non-metallic retraction springs to virtually eliminate bladder failures giving you an ultra-reliable, ultra-durable, ultra-high speed, Ultrashaft.
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.
Tidland’s Narrow Web Shafts were created specifically to meet the needs of narrow-web converters. These economical shafts are designed to fit any press — with cantilevered, drop-in, flange, and bar mounting styles available.
Series 800 shafts feature innovative two-piece expanding elements, which deliver an impressive combination of balance and torque. These advanced shafts also feature 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 800 Strip Shaft is designed for medium- to heavy-duty in 76.2 mm (3 inch) to 508 mm (20 inch) ID cores. This shaft’s full-length strip design delivers excellent torque characteristics, making it ideal for general duty unwind and rewind applications.
