Tension Barkes and Clutches
TSC Tension Control systems employ magnetic particle brakes which
produce a very accurate and stable web tension which is unaffected
by the speed of rotation. The braking force is created by an electrical
current flowing through coils producing a magnetic field, this increases
the viscosity of chromium plated iron particles situated between
the stator and rotor of the clutch or brake proportional to the
change in input current. The rotor is a very low inertia component
which allows for a rapid response to tension changes, creating accuracy
and consistency of control. The brakes are available in a range
of sizes from 2Kgs, 5Kgs, 10Kgs and 20Kgs FSD, allowing for web
tension control over a wide range of materials and products. Overtemperature
detection with automatic overload protection is fitted as standard.
Input unwind, intermediate and rewind of web tension for rotary
die cutting and setting of web tension for the laminating and print
registration in label manufacture, medical and automotive products.
Dynamometers for motor testing, connection and control in mechanical
drives, dynamic braking and programmable loads.
