Tension measurement & control

25 July 2018

TTS Systems was recently asked to measure the tension in a 25mm wide tape as it was wound onto a specially shaped production mandrel, the process also required the applied tension to be varied as the component was wound.

Using its many years of experience, TTS Systems went back to basics:

•  Measure the tension in the tape as close to the production part as possible

•  Keep the transducer’s roller diameter to a minimum so as not to damage the tape

•  Use a high speed analogue load cell amplifier, to give real time feedback to the control system

After a short commissioning period, the customer’s machine is now winding tape 15% faster than before and with improved product quality.
