  • 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 Print jamming Web guiding Scratches Telescoping Dishing Rough edgesWhat support does Andantex offer for these types of systems?
