Web-Tension Meter

MS 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.
