Force Measurement System

Strip- / web-tension meter

Strip- / Web-tension meter

IMS force measuring systems measure strip tension continuously and in real time.

Strain-gauge based force transducers are mounted underneath the bearing housings to measure the reaction force as a function of the wrap angle of the measuring roll.

Optional wrap angle compensation is available for use of a strip tension measuring system to control strip tension during coil winding.

measurement of the horizontal or vertical force

calculation of the strip tension in dependence on the wrap angle
