With MEROBEL’s new DGT300+, Web Tension Control has never been so easy to manage. The DGT300+ is a digital tension controller dedicated to web tension and torque control.
The newest Digital Controller from MEROBEL combines, in a smart and low profile front face enclosure, the most simple user’s interface with the most advanced technical features.
Designed for both closed loop and open loop tension control, the DGT300+ is the up-to-date turnkey solution for unwinding, rewinding and intermediate tension control applications.
Allowing 100% setting up through its user’s friendly Windows PC interface, or through its front panel keyboard, the DGT300+ includes all the requested web tension control specific functions : E-stop, soft start, hold & release, taper tension, no-stop splice turrets. Analog set point input is also available for using distant remote control with PLC analog output or potentiometer.
Allowing direct input of position sensors, US sensors, or any kind of load cells technology signals, the DGT300+ design gives the benefit of fully digital calibration procedure as simple as 1-2-3 (no switch, strap, or resistance).

wire-cable tension control products.Pre-Stretch Tension Control
Pre-stretch tension control is an application that allows film, plastic and other materials to be stretched before being applied to a given substrate. Pre-stretch tension control is used within the printing, labeling, and converting industry.Andantex USA has several products listed below that support this process.Learn more about pre-stretch tension control solutions and products.Intermediate Tension Control
Intermediate tension control is an application that supports the intermediate process zones, which require unique tension values. Applying a slight difference of linear speed between the infeed and draw station pulls on the web. The differential gearboxes provide adjustment of the speed difference allows to adjust the speed difference with the highest accuracy and then controls the web tension on each printing station. Intermediate tension control is used within the printing and converting industry.Learn more about intermediate tension control solutions and products.How does a tension control system work?
A tension control system works by applying a controlled torque to the unwind shaft, a capstan, or nip rollers.What is the difference between open-loop and closed-loop tension control?
The difference between open-loop and closed-loop tension control is that closed-loop tension control introduces real-time tension measurement combined with automated adjustments to achieve and maintain the tension setpoint. Open-loop systems can vary the tension but there is no direct measure of the tension. The products used for open-loop tension control are typically diameter measure and power supply or digital controllers. The products used for closed-loop tension control are load cells or dancer arms with a digital PID controller.How to calculate Tension Control?
Tension control components are sized based on specific calculations using the information provided by the end-user. Andantex can size the components for free. We ask that you contact us for assistance.What are the components of a Tension Control system?
The typical components of a tension control system are the brake or clutch, sensor, and digital controller.Which industries would use Tension Control?
The industries that use tension control are the converting, labeling, wire & cable, and packaging industries.What problems does Tension Control solve?
The proper tension control system eliminates the following issues within product manufacturing or production industries:Material wrinkles
Breaks in production/processes
Inconsistent material coatings
Inconsistent cutting of properties/dimensions
Mis-printing on paper or material
Rough edgesWhat support does Andantex offer for these types of systems?
